Ekiti 2018: Reasons we chose a youthful team — Fayose

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


Governor Ayodele Fayose has said that the PDP chose
relatively young persons for the ticket because of the party’s
belief in the country’s youth population and thus urged them
not to let down their own.
He said this in defence of the choice of 39-year-old Kazeem
Ogunsakin, 39, as the deputy governorship candidate of the
party at Ikole-Ekiti during the flag off of the governorship
election campaign by the party.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr.
Idowu Adelusi, quoted the governor as saying that PDP’s
trust in the youth could be seen in the choice of the
governorship candidate, Prof Kolapo Eleka, who is only 49.
“We are not like those who don’t see anything good in our
youths. We have implicit confidence in them and their ability
to deliver when necessary. We have chosen a youthful team
that has been proven. Ogunsakin is a former local
government chairman and currently the Special Adviser on
Due Process. Eleka has served as deputy governor for close
to four years and has proven to be a good and competent
person,” he said.
“I implore the people of Ikole local government to vote for
our party. In 2014, your vote was the third largest after Ado
and Ikere, and I want you to come first this time around. I am
also pleased with the performance of your people in
government. Everybody should go and get their permanent
voter’s cards,” he added.
After presenting Eleka and Ogunsakin to the crowd, Fayose
also welcomed over 100 persons who defected from the APC
to the PDP.
The leader of the defectors, Mr. Bayo Ayeni, recalled that
Fayose appointed him into the State Universal Basic
Education Board in 2004.
He said he and his supporters were ready to follow Fayose
and work tirelessly for the success of the PDP in the coming
In his welcome address, the Chairman of the PDP in Ikole
LGA, Alhaji Azeez Yusuff, said the evil machination of the
APC would not materialise.
