L-R: President Muhammadu Buhari, Dr Kayode Fayemi and Comrade Adams Oshiomhole...Victory is sweet...

As part of preparation for the successful outing of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at next Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Ekiti State, President Muhammadu Buhari and the party’s leader, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu led others to the state on Tuesday to hold a mega rally.

The rally was what the party’s gubernatorial candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi needed to speak more about his ambition.

During his speech at the rally held inside the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium in Ado Ekiti, he said he wanted to rule the state again to eradicate poverty among the people.

Fayemi, who was governor of the state from 2011 to 2015, told the crowd that his successor, Gov. Ayodele Fayose impoverished the citizens by not paying salaries and pensions.

According to him, Fayose deliberately deprived civil servants, teachers and pensioners their eight months’ salaries, pensions and gratuity, because he wanted to punish and make them beg for money on the streets.

He commended Ekiti people for coming out to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari contrary to the directives of the governor that nobody should come out to welcome the president to the state.

Fayemi, who resigned as Minister of Solid Mineral and Steel Development to contest the election, appealed to the electorate in the state to come out en masse to vote for him on Saturday.

“I am so delighted with your determination to defy the unpopular order by Gov. Ayo Fayose that nobody should come out to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari to Ekiti.

“It is therefore time to send Fayose and his unpopular government out of office.

“I want you to vote for me on Saturday and show Gov. Fayose that ‎the power of Ekiti people is much greater than his power,” he said.
