Fayemi seems to be under political pressure from the opposition with all the major opposition parties throwing stones at him. Only recently, the governorship candidate of Labour Party (LP), Michael Opeyemi Bamidele, at the national secretariat of his pa
13 aggrieved aspirants during the disagreement corroborated this when he briefed the press in Abuja.
“The party has believed that Fayose is the only candidate that can defeat the APC in Ekiti, but such perception is unintelligent. They believe that the madder you are the more politically effective you are. This is not a boxing contest but they have taken this doctrine of madness to the hierarchy of the party,” Sen. Aluko said.
With the coming together of all the party leaders, members and aspirants in support of Fayose, many believe that June 21, will mark a change in the political landscape of Ekiti State.
Our correspondent gathered that some of Fayose’s campaign committee members are drawn from the aspirants who lost out the primaries and are saddled with the responsibility of ensuring that the party wins the election.
With Jonathan’s intervention in the threats and disagreement between the aspirants and Fayose, the party said it is optimistic and confident that it would dislodge the APC in the election.
Fayose had already declared that his running-mate would come from Ekiti South geopolitical zone. Even though he has not officially mentioned the name of his deputy to be, he noted that “it may not be a professor but someone who has the chemistry and the ability to team up with the governor and cause a positive change in the state.”
However, as the battle intensifies, the electorates, Ekiti State Independent Electoral Commission (EKSIEC), security agents and the general public are watching meticulously and reasoning as to what the election would hold for the future of the people in Ekiti State.
With all the efforts by the major opposition party, PDP, in the state, it is left to be seen if the party can truly dislodge APC’s Fayemi come June 21.
