A member of the House of Representatives and governorship aspirant in Ekiti State under the platform of Labour Party (LP), Mr. Opeyemi Bamidele, on Thursday declared that his political structure was strong and popular enough to defeat the incumbent governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2014 guber poll.
Bamidele, who represents Ado/Irepodun/Ifelodun Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, said the Labour Party was a veritable platform that would further reinforce his hope of emerging victorious at next year’s governorship election in the state.
Bamidele spoke in Ado Ekiti, the state capital during the grand finale tour of the 16 local government council areas in furtherance of his governorship ambition.
“I have a strong political structure and goodwill to dislodge the incumbent, Governor Kayode Fayemi in any election. LP has further enhanced my popularity among the people”, he said.
He advised the ruling party in the state to refrain from harassing his supporters, saying, “No amount of threat will make me back down on the governorship race. The tentacles of LP have spread across the state.
“This is a mission that we must actualize and a race that I must pursue to the end. Ekiti needs serious intervention at this critical time”, Bamidele maintained.
