President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday asked the people of Ekiti State to embrace the ‘Change Agenda’ of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). Ahead of the July 14 governorship election in the state, the President said the APC and its candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi, have more to offer the people than their rivals in the poll. “My coming here today is not only to campaign but make clear the reason why Ekiti people must embrace the Change Agenda and vote for APC,” he told a gathering of party supporters in Ado-Ekiti.
“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.” President Buhari was convinced that the Ekiti people are a politically aware and well-informed electorate who cannot be brainwashed or deceived by anyone or party. Stressing the need to support the APC, he highlighted the intervention projects of the Federal Government in the state, despite its current administration by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to the President, his administration has not only carried out laudable projects in Ekiti but also helped in creating employment opportunities for the indigenes in the last three years. He said, “The APC government has executed 13 Federal Roads and Intervention Projects in Ekiti State. Some have already been completed and some are near completion.”
