The all Progressives Congress in Ekiti State has endorsed Governor Kayode Fayemi for the presidency contest in 2023.
The state APC vowed to force Governor Fayemi to contest the presidential election in 2023 even if he refuses to willingly join the race.
Paul Omotoso, the APC Caretaker Chairman, stated this in Ayede Ekiti, Oye Local government on Saturday during a Christmas programme organised by a chieftain of the party, Dr Olusegun Osinkolu for 1,000 APC members in Ekiti North Senatorial District.
Omotoso was represented at the event by the APC Caretaker Publicity Secretary, Hon Ade Ajayi.
“We can say boldly that APC will win the Ekiti governorship election in 2022, because Governor Fayemi has done credibly well and we don’t want another reckless party that will destroy Ekiti again,” he said.
“On the 2023 presidency, the time has come for President to come from Ekiti. That is why we are pleading with you to support Governor Fayemi.
“Though, Governor Fayemi has never said he wanted to contest, but we will force him to plunge into the race, because of his competence, dedication and loyalty to APC.”
The Caretaker Chairman added that the party hierarchies at the state, local government and ward levels will reward Osinkolu, who was the Chairman of Buhari/Osinbajo Campaign Council in Ekiti in 2019 presidential poll, for his contributions and loyalty to APC despite all odds.
“We are going to support him for Senatorial race in 2023, because he has done well to boost the acceptability and popularity of our party in Ekiti despite that he was denied Senatorial ticket twice. He has remained loyal, contented and committed to APC.”
