Fayose Presents PDP Candidate, 39 year Old Running Mate To Local Council
Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has presented the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, and his 39-year-old running mate, Kazeem Ogunsakin, to the Ewi of Ado, Oba Rufus Aladesanmi Adejugbe, and his council.
The governor said he supported Ogunsakin who is a Muslim from Ado Ekiti town which gave him the largest votes in 2014, and most importantly, for being a youth.
In his words, “Ordinarily, we wouldn’t have supported Ogunsakin but for the fact that he has performed admirably well as the Chairman of Ado Local Government Area and hails from the town, which gave me the highest votes in 2014.
“He also served well as the Head of Due Process in my cabinet, and also that he is a Muslim who represents the interest of the hitherto neglected Muslim community in Ekiti.
“And most importantly, I want to actualise the dream of our youths who have clamoured for concrete and active representation in government. I am not a kind of person who makes a promise and not fulfil it. With 39-year old Ogunsakin, we have shown to the world that really we want the youths to participate in government in support of the not-too-young-to-run law.
“Continuity is good for the state and for a professor who has made great impact for the state in education and also for Ogunsakin, they are a perfect combination to continue our good works and even do it better.”
Fayose also placed a curse on any politician, including himself, who is planning to violence on the state in order to manipulate the July 14 governorship poll.
“This state deserves peace, people of Ekiti deserves peace. Anybody that brings violence to this state would come under the judgment of God. Anybody that attempts to manipulate this state would come under the judgment of God.
“We hand Ekiti over to God and we pray that anybody, including myself and any other politician that bring violence to this state, will face the judgment of God,” he said.
In his remark, Oba Adejugbe thanked the governor for the many projects he had put in place to beautify the state capital describing him as an uncommon man.
“Politics apart, if we examine our city, Ado Ekiti, four years ago, we would all agree that Governor Fayose has performed very well, he saidCopyright Naija News 2018. All rights reserved.
