A Frontline politician and a leading stakeholder in Oyo State politics, Mr. Sunday Dare, has congratulated the winner of the Ekiti State governorship election, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
He described Fayemi’s victory as a well-deserved victory.
On his twitter handle, Dare said: “Well-deserved. APC is stronger together.”
According to Dare, “the lesson of the Ekiti governorship election is that we are stronger together as a party.
“In the execution of the Ekiti election, the leading lights of Ekiti rallied and drove a campaign with vigor and conviction. From the leadership provided, from President Muhammadu Buhari to the governors and party leaders, there was a unity of purpose. This provided the energy that galvanised APC members into action. I was there four years ago when the PDP government brutalised and harassed us. I was stopped at the Ondo – Ekiti border along with other APC leaders and at a point, a gun was pointed at my head by one of the soldiers for daring to take pictures. My phone was seized and I was ordered to kneel down in surrender. This victory is a vindication of our faith in Nigeria’s democratic process.
“I salute Fayemi for his faith in our system and for keeping his eye at the tip of the spear. We are excited and encouraged and APC is stronger together. The race to 2019 is on in earnest and our party is ever-ready to compete.”
