Opeyemi Bamidele a former member of the House of Representatives, and ex member of the Labour Party who has declared to contest under his party flag for the governorship election in Ekiti has pointed out some reasons that could cost his party to lose in the coming governorship election in Ekiti state.
According to the former house member, he made it known that the internal crisis within the party could be a reason for the downfall of the party in the governorship poll slated for July 14.
While speaking on Tuesday, The APC candidate made it known that its party is planing to seize power from the ruling party in the state the Peoples Democratic Party in the election.
The former lawmaker lamented that the current situation whereby aspirants were making unfavourable comments about one another could shatter such dream.
Bamidele, who is also a governorship aspirant, has expressed his disappointment with in house aspirants of the APC using social media and APC platforms to discredit each other.
He said, “I have heard some aspirants branding others as unmarketable. I have heard some describing some notable members and even a national officer as an outsider in the APC.
“All these sinister and deleterious political moves might impede our desire to take over Ekiti, except we begin to see ourselves as one and the time to do that is now.
“Those who still maintain a hard stance after being cautioned by the party’s top hierarchy should be sanctioned. The APC is a party guided by the constitution and it should not trivialise issues that could disunite members, particularly at a time that we are approaching a critical election like this.
“Ekiti and Osun governorship elections are strategic to our party. The polls will determine so many things in our party and it will help in sending a signal that the APC is still very strong, acceptable and remains a movement in the country’s political hemisphere.”
