Ekiti Polls: 21 Parties Support Fayemi for Saturday’s Election
Twenty one political parties, under the aegis of Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP), have declared support for Governor Kayode Fayemi against tomorrow’s gubernatorial election in the state.
The parties, at a joint press conference in Ado Ekiti, said they were supporting the governor because he is the best among the candidates vying for the post.
Political parties and their representatives at the briefing are, Prince Ayo Adelabu of the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA), Victor Akinola of Advanced Congress Democrats (ACD) and Mr. Tola Oke of Citizens Popular Party (CPP).
Others are Pastor Ade Ogunkolade of KOWA party; Engr. Goke Animashaun (PPA); Mr Ilesanmi Emmanuel (NCP); Evan Adekunle Gbenga (PPN); Mr Akinropo Adeniji (UDP) and Mr. Ayodele Samson Olayinka of CPP.
Representatives of the political parties in their different contributions said they had instructions from their national headquarters to support Fayemi’s re-election bid.
State chairman of CNPP, Prince Tunji Ogunsola, stressed the need for people to avoid political rancour and acrimony saying it is capable of truncating the peaceful atmosphere of the state and the nation.
“We hereby appeal to all and sundry to avoid engaging in political battle that can lead to shedding of blood, maiming and killing of innocent citizen.”
In a similar development, Ekiti state chapter of the Association of Commercial Motorcycle Operators of Nigeria declared support for the governors.
State chairman of the association, Mr. Ademo Olu Martins, said the decision to support Fayemi for second term was a collective one saying any of their members that supports any other candidate should be ignored.
He said, “after comparing the past governments with the present government, we therefore conclude that this government has lived up to the expectation of Ekiti people.”
