Ekiti 2018: APC will be embarrassed with votes — Ogunsakin

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


The nomination of Abdulkazeem Ogunsakin as the PDP
running mate has energised the contest with Muslim groups
taking sides for and against the first Muslim to be nominated
on the ticket of any of the major political parties.
39-year old Ogunsakin was speaking at a rally organized for
both himself and Eleka by the Ekiti Muslim community in
appreciation to Governor Ayo Fayose for endorsing a Muslim
as Deputy Governorship candidate of PDP.
The event held at the newly constructed Fajuyi park arena in
Ado Ekiti, the state capital.
Praising the role of the governor in his nomination as deputy
governorship candidate, he said:
“I appreciate you on behalf of the young people of Ekiti State
and Nigerians at large. We have been agitating that we are
not too young to run and today, you have made our dreams
come true. We are very grateful to you sir. We are assuring
you that we are not lazy like somebody said.”
“We will defer to you, we will not be arrogant, and as God
lives, we will appreciate you come July 14 , we will
embarrass the APC with votes,” he said.
Also speaking at the rally, which was well attended by
hundreds of Muslims in the state, Chief Imam of Ekiti State,
and Grand Imam of South West, Delta, and Edo, Sheik Kamiu
Kewulere Bello, said, “We asked for four things from the
governor, and he has done three things now. This third he
did is so surprising. “We had told him that since he already
has supported a Christian governorship candidate, we wanted
the deputy.
“We had said that any party that fails to carry one of us as a
deputy governor, we will not support. But Governor Fayose
has chosen our son, Abdulkazeem. Any other party that
called us we will answer them, we are their fathers. We are
not politicians.
Also speaking at the occasion, the candidate, Kolapo Eleka
described Governor Fayose as grand commander of
grassroots politics and lover of youths.
He lauded Sheik Bello for his leadership qualities, saying, “I
thank you for back acknowledging that Fayose is a promise
keeper. Fayose, a promise keeper, has kept this promise.
