Written by on June 10, 2022

Ekiti State Governor and Presidential Aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Kayode Fayemi, received a hero’s welcome on Wednesday on his return to Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, after the party’s Special Convention and presidential primary.

A large crowd of enthusiastic party supporters, artisans, and commercial motorbike riders received Dr. Fayemi at Igbara-Odo, a border town between Ekiti and Ondo State with songs and drumming and followed him to the Fajuyi Pavillion, Ado-Ekiti, where another large crowd had converged to receive the Governor with “Fayemi for Nigeria” slogans.

Dr. Fayemi who was one of the leading aspirants of the party had stepped down for the eventual winner, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and urged the state delegates and his supporters across the states to vote for the former Lagos State Governor during the APC primary.

Addressing party supporters at the rally, Dr. Fayemi said the unity of the country was a major consideration for him in taking the decision to step down for Asiwaju Tinubu, whom he described as a leader, mentor, and a great fighter for democracy and Nigeria.

Dr. Fayemi disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari, the APC Presidential flagbearer, Asiwaju Tinubu, the party’s National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, APC governors, and other critical stakeholders will be in Ado-Ekiti next Tuesday for the party’s mega rally in support of the Ekiti State Governorship Candidate, Mr. Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji.

He said the APC will win the June 18 governorship election in the state convincingly and use it as a springboard for the many electoral victories that would follow at the state and national levels.

He said the electoral victory of the party’s presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Tinubu will start from the success of the party in the coming Ekiti gubernatorial election.
