Following the emergence of the former governor of Ekiti, Kayode Fayemi as the flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) President Muhammadu Buhari, on Sunday, May 13, congratulated him saying that he had trust in Fayemi’s capacity and capability to fly the party’s flag and win the election scheduled for July 14.
“Congratulations to Kayode Fayemi on winning the APC ticket to contest the July 14, 2018 governorship elections in Ekiti state.
“I have no doubt that Fayemi’s track record as a reformist-with a passion for education, health and the welfare of the ordinary people-will stand him in good stead in the elections.
“I would also like to commend all the participants in the keenly-contested primary. I would like them to uphold the values and philosophy of the APC by joining hands to support Dr Fayemi in the forthcoming elections.
“The APC takes internal democracy seriously, and the success of the Ekiti Primary, with more than 30 aspirants, further validates our party’s democratic credentials.
“Let me assure that we will continue to work hard to lead Nigeria to the next level of its development journey,”
