Ekiti Is Indebted To Tinubu, Will Repay With Votes – Gov Oyebanji

EKITI State Governor, Mr Biodun Oyebanji has said, that the state is indebted to former Lagos State Governor and Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and would pay back with massive votes during next month’s election.

Governor Oyebanji who stated this during the inauguration of the 143-member APC State Presidential Campaign Council in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday, described the former Lagos State Governor as the undisputable father of progressive politics in the country who should be well supported for the nation’s number job.

Oyebanji who was joined at the inauguration ceremony by the immediate past Governor of the State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, said Tinubu was a benefactor to the progressive family in Ekiti State, adding that his support for the progressives in the early years of the struggle was unquantifiable.

He described the APC Presidential Candidate as the most qualified among all the candidates jostling for the presidential seat in terms of competence, capacity, courage, experience and sagacity.

“This time, we are searching for the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Our Party, the All Progress Congress (APC) has presented the best man for the job. We are no stranger to the candidate of our party, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu is the indisputable father of progressive politics in Nigeria.

He ticks all the boxes for competence, courage, character, excellence, experience and sagacity. In terms of political acumen, he is a living legend; and when it comes to ability and capacity to govern, he is mile ahead of his strongest rivals.

“Here in Ekiti, he was our benefactor in the progressive family. He was politically there for us at our toddling years. It is time for us to feed the leader that once nursed us. The duty is now ours to go from house to house, shelter to shelter, and place to place to ensure that our party and candidate win convincingly. For us in Ekiti, our target is to be the State that returns the highest percentage of votes to APC and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu come February 25, 2023.”

He called on all APC leaders to commence house to house campaign to ensure that the party wins convincingly adding that the target for the state was to return the highest percentage of votes to APC and its presidential candidate in the February 25, 2023 elections.

Speaking further, Oyebanji noted that all politics is local. He therefore urged members of the council to take the political campaign to the grassroots and ensure victory for the party all levels of elections from presidential to State Assembly elections.

He said: “As we campaign for Asiwaju, we must campaign vigorously for the three senatorial candidates of our party, namely: Hon. Yemi Adaramodu, Ekiti South; Hon. Cyril Fasuyi, Ekiti North and Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, Ekiti Central.

“Similarly, we must collectively work for the victory of Hon. Femi Bamisile, Ekiti South Federal Constituency I; AVM Niyi Ojuawo (rtd), Ekiti South Federal Constituency II; Mr. Akin Rotimi, Ekiti North Federal Constituency I; Mr. Akinlayo Kolawole, Ekiti North Federal Constituency II; Hon. Sola Fatoba, Ekiti Central Federal Constituency I and Hon. Biodun Omoleye, Ekiti Central Federal Constituency II. Of course, we must do everything possible to ensure the victory of all the candidates of our Party for House of Assembly seat. The victory must be total and comprehensive.
