Non Governmental Organization, Ekiti Development Front (EDF) has again empowered another set of 163 residents of Ekiti with a call to them to give their votes to Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the July 14, 2018 poll in the state.
The empowerment which was the fifth phase of the NGO’s programme held in Aramoko, Ekiti West Local Government of Ekiti had selected beneficiaries from Ekiti west and 4 other local governments in the state which include;Ado,Ijero, Efon, and Irepodun/Ifelodun Local Governments.
Speaking during the distribution of the materials to the beneficiaries during the programme held at Aramoko motor park on Tuesday, the convener of the programme, Barr. Adeoye Aribasoye said the people should ignore Governor Ayo Fayose’s propaganda and vote for Fayemi in July 14 poll.
He said Fayose has resorted to propaganda and lies against Fayemi because the Peoples’ Democratic Party government led by Fayose does not have any achievement it can use to campaign to of the people, hence it has resorted to propaganda and lies against the APC candidate.
According to him, “today it was lies of creation of cattle colonies against Fayemi, yesterday they said he initiated teachers sack in Kaduna and that he has said he will come and sack teachers in Ekiti, this was how they said Fayemi has a university in Ghana four years ago and up till now the said university has no name”
Aribasoye said the PDP were into these mischiefs because they have been intimidated by Fayemi’s achievements during his term in Ekiti which doted all nucks and corner of all the sixteen local governments of the state.
He listed Fayemi’s achievements in Ekiti to include: School renovation project, building and construction of palaces across the state, Rural developmentent project with opening up and grading of 5 kilometres roads each across the 16 Local government, and owo adugbo, social security for senior citizens among others.
Aribasoye who noted that Ekiti people are wise now said ” they can differentiate between Fayemi that will truly bring the desired prosperity to Ekiti and Fayose’s continuity agenda of hunger, slavery, deception and non payment of salary”
While urging the people to vote enmass for Fayemi, the APC candidate in July 14, 2018 election who he said is prepared to make Ekiti great again, Aribasoye said Ekiti people should not make a mistake of voting for Fayose’s Deputy, Eleka who they know has nothing but continuation of his masters misgovernment in Ekiti”
Aribasoye who said the empowerment was his parsonal initiative aimed at giving succor to the residents in the areas of social amenities, education, economic empowerment, political enlightenment and defence of their human rights, explained that the EDF was supporting Fayemi because is the only credible that they knew could prioritize people welfare and ensure the desired dividends of democracy in the state.
