The Campaign Organization of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Bisi Kolawole, has challenged the All Progressives Congress (APC) to start using the achievements of Governor Kayode Fayemi’s government to campaign.

The Bisi Kolawole Campaign Organization (BKCO) said insecurity, workers sack, infrastructural decay, among others are Fayemi’s achievements that will make Ekiti people use their votes to send APC out of power on June 18, 2022.
The APC candidate, Biodun Oyebanji had boasted that Fayemi’s achievements will be used to win the governorship election.

However, BKCO Spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, said in a release on Sunday that “Fayemi’s achievements Oyebanji can build on are banditry that has turned most Ekiti roads to nightmares, kidnappings, workers sack, bad roads (Akure to Ekiti, no road) and blanket looting of public funds.

In Ekiti, under Fayemi and his APC government, even primary school teachers are not being spared by bandits, with teachers in the State
having to contribute N500 each to pay ransom demanded by kidnappers of one of their colleagues recently.

“Just yesterday, a former member of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Hon Edu Mayokun was kidnapped along Ikere – Igbara Odo road. Last week, more than 10 people were kidnapped at Ikole area of the State alone.

“In Ekiti under Fayemi and his APC, kidnappers have gone to the ridiculous level of collecting food items, cigarettes, alcohol drinks, etc as ransom.

“In December 2019, when Ekiti people were preparing for Christmas and New Year celebrations, over 1,000 workers of the State University were sacked and up till now, the court judgment directing their reinstatement is yet to be obeyed.

“Even when they said they were employing workers, it turned out to be scam as over 100 Ekiti indigenes, whose names had been released as those who were successful among the applicants in the November 2020,
Teaching Service Commission recruitment exercise did not get employment letters up till today, after they were made to pay a sum of
N5,000 each for induction, handbook and others.

“Other achievements that the APC and its candidate will campaign with are the killing of innocent students of the Federal University, Oye
Ekiti (FUOYE) by trigger happy security aides of Fayemi’s wife, killings by political thugs, especially during the EndSars protest and
the last year’s House of Assembly by-election in Ekiti East Local Government.

“In September 2019, three students of Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE), were brutally murdered by security aides of Fayemi’s wife.

“It is alarming that candidate of the APC in the June 18 governorship election, Biodun Oyebanji is joyfully saying that he will continue with this legacy of killings, sacking of workers, kidnappings and infrastructural decay and we await what they will tell Ekiti people when they mount campaign podium.”

Muslim-Muslim ticket: Christians have nothing to fear – Adeyeye

The National Chairman of the South West Agenda (SWAGA) 2023, Senator Dayo Adeyeye has reiterated that Christian faithful has nothing to fear on the All Progressive Congress (APC) Muslim-Muslim ticket, staying that Bola Tinubu is a liberal person who will not discriminate against other religion in the country.

Adeyeye described the choice of Senator Kashim Shettima as the running mate to the All Progressive Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as a masterstroke that has put the opposition party in panicking mode.

Adeyeye noted that the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar lacks the moral justification to condemn the choice of Kashim Shettima as the running mate to Tinubu.

He explained that the PDP candidate supported the Muslim-Muslim ticket in 1993 with his moves to be the running mate of MKO Abiola.

Adeyeye said this in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital on Friday while receiving hundreds of members of opposition parties in the state into SWAGA.

At the event, members of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) , Accord Party, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) , National Rescue Movement (NRM) and the chairman of the Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC) Ifedayo Iyaniwura signaled their readiness to work for the victory of Tinubu during the February presidential poll.

He explained that the group would do everything possible to deliver majority of votes in Ekiti for the APC presidential candidate, ” who is ready to offer hopes to the people and improve our livelihood,”
saying people across political divides would be welcomed for the task he declared as the South West project.

He said, ” We want everybody to come on board because this is not about a particular party. We have representatives of various political parties in this gathering wanting to work for the victory of Tinubu next year. Let me tell you that if we call these people today as APC member, they won’t have been here but we say it is South West Agenda for our principal, and that is the reason you can see the large turnout of people across party lines. That is why we see SWAGA as the vehicle to deliver most of the votes in the south west.

” Politics is a game of number and PDP can’t challenge us from the moral ground because their candidate, Atiku Abubakar believed in that ticket in 1993 as evidence has surfaced and don’t forget some of us were participant then. We knew he wanted to be vice president to MKO Abiola. So, if he was struggling to be in the ticket in 1993, why will it be opposing it now ?”

” It was evident he was going to pick Christian South this time because he is a Muslim from the North, it is more easier for him.”

” I want to allay the fears of our Christian brother because I am a Christian too and Tinubu is a man who is tolerant of other religion. This is a free minded person who will not discriminate against anyone. Take it, if Tinubu finds it difficult to Islamize his wife, is that the person that will Islamize the country when the better half is Christian and Pastor ?

” I believe Tinubu-Shettima is a winning ticket and PDP is on a panic mode because they know we will have a repeat of history next year, where MKO Abiola won with a landslide especially in the North. There is a way history repeat itself.”

On the perceived failures of the current APC-led government by the citizens, Adeyeye said the credentials and the track record of the presidential candidate when he was governor in Lagos and the trust Nigerians has in him would help in swaying the votes for the party.

” In Nigeria politics today, people should look at the personalities of those contesting and look at their track record and assess them based on what they have done in the past.

Tinubu is coming with a huge credentials into this race looking at how he did tremendously well when he was governor.
