Ekiti 2018: Oyegun Assures Of Free, Transparent Poll
Ahead of the July 14 Governorship election in Ekiti State, the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun, has assured of a free, fair and credible poll.
Odigie-Oyegun spoke yesterday in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, during his one-day official visit to Ekiti State for the membership mobilisation drive into the party.
The party chairman also said the election would be a “must-win” for the ruling party at the Federal level.
Odigie-Oyegun said the kick-off of the nationwide registration of new party members was brought to Ekiti to show the readiness of the APC to win this year’s governorship poll in the Southwest state.
He said: “We did not choose Ekiti to kick-start this event (new membership drive) by accident. Ekiti is facing an important election that will happen in this nation.
“God has put it in our hand; God has put it on your laps and God has chosen Ekiti to be a major factor in the politics of this country in July 2018.
“We in the National Executive have decided that the coming election in Ekiti is one we will work as hard as possible to win. No stone will be left unturned: it is a must-win election.
“As you know, the Muhammadu Buhari administration will not compromise offering voters a level-playing field. The Buhari administration will not compromise having a free and fair election.
“It means whether we are in power at the federal level or not, we must all work hard to deserve the victory that belongs to us.”
The National Chairman, Ekiti State APC Chairman, Chief Olajide Awe, the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, State Working Committee (SWC) members and governorship aspirants also graced the event.
