The campaign to return Dr Kayode Fayemi to office as Governor of Ekiti State kicked off on Thursday, 27th March, 2014 at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, in the state capital.
Speaking at the event, going on now, the state interim Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), High Chief Jide Awe, stated that unlike other parties who need external forces and assistance to win election, APC relied on the people to win and that the people are on the side of the party.
“We know you are for us and we will not disappoint you. Dr Kayode Fayemi has done it before and he will do it again,” he said.
Also speaking, interim National Vice Chairman of APC for Southwest and former Governor of the state, Otunba Niyi Adebayo, state that while APC presented an academic as its candidate, the opposition presented someone who is in court being prosecuted for stealing state funds.
“We presented a Phd holder, they are presenting a thief and in Ekiti we don’t vote for thief and I’m sure that by the grace of God, Fayemi will be returned to office in June,” he said.
