Kayode Fayemi, the All Progressives Congress candidate for the Ekiti State governorship election has criticised Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, for declaring Thursday a public holiday owing to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, campaign rally.
Fayemi in a statement by the Director of Media and Publicity of his Campaign Organisation Wole Olujobi, slammed the governor for turning the state into a ‘jungle where decent behaviour had no place in political conduct.’
“For declaring holiday today for workers to attend a political rally, besides subjecting Ekiti State to ridicule among Nigerians, that decision shows clearly that Fayose has lost the support of his party members, thousands of whom had defected to APC in recent times over alleged greed, indecent conduct and selfishness.
“The choice of the venue of the rally on a major highway is instructive, as it became clear that he (Fayose) would not be able to muster enough crowds that would not betray him as a spent politician.
“We sympathise with the stranded students that were lured to the rally only to be left in the lurch immediately the rally was over to face their pitiful fate.
“July 14 is here. We urge Ekiti people to vote for their freedom by voting for Dr Kayode Fayemi, a man of vision that can be trusted with the power and resources of the state.
“Ekiti people must end the era of suffering and lies by voting PDP out to end continuity of hunger, want, deceit and lack of focus to face Ekiti State’s development challenges to enable the Ekiti people to live like decent people,” the statement read.
