National chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun has described Ekiti state governor as a person who is abusive and lacks decorum, vowing that the party will take over government of the state from his grip after July 14 governorship election.
Oyegun said this at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja when receiving Nasarawa State governor and Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) Ekiti Governorship Primary Election Committee, Alhaji Tanko Al-Makura.
“Ekiti state present governor is very abusive and lacks decorum. We are working to ensure that the victory you have started is carried through, come July 14, the governorship election in Ekiti,” he said.
He added that the APC was taking the Ekiti governorship poll seriously “to redeem the state from what a very abusive government”.
Meanwhile, Al-Makura attributed the success of Saturday’s primary to mature conduct of aspirants and delegates.
He said that delegates and other party members supported the process with cooperation and orderly behaviour.
According to him, in spite of the rains, the delegates carried themselves in a very mature way and even embraced themselves after the results were announced.
The governor urged the party’s leadership to leverage the solidarity exhibited by members at the primary to ensure cohesion among its members, especially in Ekiti.
He blamed the disruption that led to the botched May 5 primary to activities of hoodlums who took advantage of security lapses to cause crisis.
He commended members of his committee for their efforts, and also thanked the party’s leadership for the opportunity given to the members to serve.
“We were so impressed and excited immediately after declaring the results to find most of the aspirants in the gallery coming around and congratulating Dr. Fayemi and showing him solidarity.
“I believe the Party should use that platform to ensure cohesion and affinity among aspirants. I believe if the Party encourages these aspirants, they will deploy their efforts in ensuring that we win July 14 Ekiti Governorship Election.” he said.
