Reason For Contesting For Ekiti Governorship Aspirant

If you ask the PDP candidate why he is competing for the coveted seat of power, he will respond as follows, according to ‘Yomi Aiyeleso of Tribune News

“I am contesting because we are very familiar with the situation in Ekiti. We know where the shoe pinches because the present APC government in the state has not done enough. People are suffering from no care from the government. The workers and pensioners are being owed as we speak.

The roads and other facilities are bad and dilapidated, and our youths are not being encouraged to go into farming and other opportunities. With me in the saddle, all these will be looked into. Let me tell you that the totality of all these things will make an average Ekiti person comfortable and well.

Don’t forget that I am familiar with governance, having been a member of the House of Assembly, and a commissioner in the state. All these are important. The people are not asking government to make them millionaires. They just want to be comfortable. Provide adequate social services to them. The totality of all I have said is one of the reasons that have prompted me to go all out for it, and by the grace of God, with experience and support of the people, the situation will improve.”
