Prince Adeolu Tinubu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress has called on Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State to seek peace with his aggrieved party men so that he can achieve his mission and vision for the people of Ekiti State.
Tinubu in his statement noted that the plans of the state Governor will only materialise under the atmosphere of peace and unity, not via chaos and political indifferences that will affect the people of the state.
Governor Fayemi and Senator Dayo Adeyeye, Babafemi Ojudu and many others have been battling over the control of APC in Ekiti State, which has caused a lot of tension in recent time.
The APC chieftain while speaking on the crisis noted that Fayemi and politicians of the party extraction must work in one accord for the state to be truly respected as a land of honour.
He further stated that political office holder should not have the impression that all their grievances can be resolved by heating up the polity, saying such tendencies can only make the state ungovernable and decelerate the spate of development.
“I appeal to Governor Kayode Fayemi and the political leaders of APC and even other parties to eschew discord and embrace peace.”
“The latest development where party leaders are locked in battles would only increase disunity in the state and thereby retard the progress and development as a whole.”
“There is no meaningful progress that can be made under the climate of discord, unhealthy rivalry, violence and general disequilibrium.”
“Ekiti state is loaded with manpower potentials, and we are respected for our hard work and intelligence. Such potentials will amount to nothing when not harnessed to effectively bring out greatness for our dear state.”
“Governor Fayemi as the leader must live by example by reaching out to aggrieved individuals across party lines on the need to ensure a peaceful Ekiti.”
“The 2022 governorship election is still long. This is the right time for governance and when the time to play politics comes, then they should all go out and reach out to our people to canvas for votes, in a peaceful and civil manner”, he advised.
