The re-election campaign train of Gov. Kayode Fayemi hits Efon Friday and had the first stop at Itawure where Dr Fayemi was joined by party leaders and prominent indigene of Itawure in welcoming Mr Governor to their town.
The meeting and rally is part of Campaign organization plan of reaching out to the people of the state through towns and villages rally, seeking support for the reelection bid of Dr Kayode Fayemi.
Fayemi later proceeded to Efon Local Government to the grand reception of Chairman of Efon Local Government Dr Adio Afolayan, Obalufon Alayemore, Alaye of Efon Kingdom, Oba Emmanuel Adesanya Aladejare and illustrious sons and daughters of Efon Kingdom.
In his usual habit of seeking prayers and blessings from elders, Dr Kayode Fayemi first point of call in Efon was the palace of Alaye of Efon. He was accompanied by Interim Chairman of APC, Chief Jide Awe, Erelu Bisi Fayemi (Wife of the Governor), Speaker, Dr Adewale Ominrin, SSG, Alhaji Ganiu Owolabi, Mrs Ronke Okunsanya (Commissioner for Culture and Tourism) and Director General of Kayode Fayemi Campaign Organization, Bimbo Daramola.
The Alaye of Efon acknowledged the good work of Fayemi as he progress in his administration. “I am happy to have received all the work you have been doing under 8point agenda. All hospitals, water, roads have been met by this administration so we thank you”. We support a team that progress in affecting peoples live positively. We support government that caters for the old citizens through a sustainable scheme. Our sons and daughters will assist you for the sake of the future of Ekiti. The entire Efon people are solidly behind you. You have given us an accountable dividend of democracy and we will return this good work with votes, he concluded.
In his remark shortly before proceeding to the rally, Gov Fayemi appreciated the people of Efon, he said, all the projects and achievements of government has been put together in a magazine by the LG Chairman and we believe there is more to be done if there is continuity in government.
At the “Rally” Fayemi attributed the success of his administration in Efon to the support he received from people. Efon Alaye is a home and base for us. You are the reason we are progressing. We so much believe in people’s power. Our achievements speak more for us than violent act of the opposition. Their party has lost its credibility; they don’t value aged citizen, royal fathers and the heritage of the Ekiti. In APC we don’t ridicule our youth because we know they are leaders. Instead, we empower them, nurture them and encourage them to stand
In APC we dont insult our elders, we dont kidnap royal fathers, we honor them, we celebrate them and raise them to their esteem social status.
What we are saying is that, a popular candidate will be elected by the people not through violence and rigging. Elected leaders must perform credible unlike government that came in through the back door, their days in Ekiti was woeful.
“Our government is able and fit to cater for the people. We are popular with teachers, it amazes me when i hear them saying we are enemy of teachers. Look at teachers sited in numbers waiting for us.
Teachers have not enjoyed this much under any government like this, in 3years we have implemented new teachers basic salary, from #8,500,- #13,500 and #19,500, he boasted. He further said, “our government introduced rural allowance for teachers in Ekiti, that put us above
any government. He concluded his remark charging traditional institutions to warn violent politicians. Ekiti people are peaceful, they know what they want, they are wary of the choice to make that will unite and translate to development, he concluded.
