Some youths under the auspices of Youth Traders’ Association have launched a campaign to rally support for the re-election of Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi.
The campaign was launched by members of the association in the popular Erekesan Market, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital, with a visit to the palace of the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe.
They also visited stalls within the sprawling ware point to mobilize and widen the support base of the incumbent governor among traders.
Waving banners with various inscriptions on the landmarks of the Fayemi-led administration, the youths, urged traders to return the government to office with their votes on June 21.
Their spokesman, Mr. Opeyemi Fakayode, said the mobilization became necessary because of the facelift the Dr Fayemi has brought into governance and turning Ado-Ekiti to a befitting capital city.
Also throwing its weight behind the youths, an apolitical organization – Modupe Adelabu Support Group, noted that the state has witnessed tremendous progress under the Fayemi administration.
The Group’s Coordinator, Prince Diran Aladesanmi, said the state capital has been a major beneficiary of the transformational programmes of government since Fayemi came into the saddle as governor.
Aladesanmi describes as laudable legacies the infrastructures provided by the state government.
