President Muhamadu Buhari today asked the electorate in Ekiti not to waste their votes in Saturday’s governorship election and urged them to rather elect the All Progressives Party (APC) candidates’ Dr Kayode Fayemi.

He asked them to check the track record of the ruling APC administration in the country.

Buhari, who gave the charge in Ado-Ekiti at the grand finale of the mega rally of the party, told the crowd of party faithful and supporters at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium that there was no better alternative to Fayemi.

He advised the people of Ekiti not to be decived by the “stomach infrastructure” the PDP government had put in place in the state as he described it as different from what true democracy preaches.

Buhari said that he dint only come to Ekiti to campaign for Fayemi but also to sensitize people on the dividends of democracy that has so far been made available to them.

The president said his administration had so far executed 13 projects in the state, with no fewer than 29 contractors handling them.

He said the initiatives, most of which were road construction projects, had also provided direct and indirect jobs to many residents.

Besides, he said approval had been given by his administration for the construction of a Federal Secretariat in Ado Ekiti to ease the burden of office accommodation faced by federal workers in the state.

He also listed the engagement of many indigenes of the state in the N-Power programme of the Federal Government, granting of bailout funds to the state as well as approval of School-Feeding Programme and Conditional Cash Transfer scheme as some of the achievements of his administration.

The president assured the people of the state of more dividends of democracy if they support Fayemi in the election.

Also addressing the crowd, the National Chairman of the party, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, said Fayemi would redress all the wrongs of the Ayo Fayose administration.

He also gave an assurance that all the salaries and emoluments owed workers by the Fayose administration would be paid.

Speaking in the same vein, the National Leader of the party, Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, assured residents that the APC was committed to the progress and development of the country.

He accused the PDP of destroying the country’s economy, urging the people to embrace the change agenda of the APC.

It was the PDP that destroyed the future of Nigeria and those yet unborn. PDP stole all the monies and made life difficult for all the citizens

” It is not easy to rebuild what the PDP has spent long years destroying; for many of them that are now complaining, where were they when our economy was being bastardised?

” You must not allow anybody to intimidate you, I urge you to guard your PVC and use it wisely on Saturday

” It is your turn in Ekiti to get a good government, it is not for you alone but for your children and their future,’’ Tinubu said.
