President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the people of Ekiti State to vote Dr. Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during July 14 governorship poll in order to grow beyond stomach infrastructure.
Buhari made this call on Tuesday at Grand Finale of APC Gubernatorial Campaign Rally in Ado Ekiti.
He said his visit to Ekiti was not only to campaign, but make clear the reason why Ekiti people must embrace the Change Agenda and vote for APC.
According to him: “I, therefore, call on Ekiti people! Don’t allow yourself to be insulted by stomach infrastructure. Your future and the future of the upcoming generations are in your hands today. Vote for APC and grow beyond Stomach Infrastructure.
“The time has come to correct historical injustice and restore Ekiti State to the path of peace and prosperity. The whole country looks to Ekiti to do the right thing by voting for the APC candidate in the election this Saturday, July 14, as you commence the journey to Reclaiming Your Land and Restoring Your Values.”
The President disclosed that the APC Government has executed 13 Federal Roads and Intervention Projects in Ekiti State, adding that some have already been completed and some are near completion.
” In spite of the fact that the current administrations in Ekiti State and the Federal Government belong to opposing political parties, we have always ensured the State got her fair share in the allocation of resources, the siting of federal projects, and the selection of beneficiaries of federal government programmes. We will never play politics with the welfare of the people of Ekiti or any other State regardless of the partisan affiliation of the government of the day.”. Buhari explained.
He promised that the APC led government will not manipulate the election, “I came into office in 2015 through a free and fair election. In my party, the APC, we do not believe in manipulation of electoral processes. The will of the people must matter. And that is what we will uphold here in Ekiti – FREE and FAIR ELECTIONS. No manipulation of any form.”
The President therefore urged all the stakeholders of this important election to ensure free and fair election, embrace peace and promote democracy in Nigeria.
