The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, gubernatorial candidate in the June 21 governorship elections in Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, has described as a failure, the education policy of the president administration of Governor Kayode Fayemi.
Fayose, who stated this while addressing a mammoth crowd of supporters at Imesi Ekiti, in Ekiti West Local Government Area of the state, said that despite the media hype surrounding Fayemi’s achievements in the education sector, the state came 34th in the last WAEC examinations.
In a press statement issued on Saturday by his media aide, Idowu Adelusi, Fayose recalled that when he became governor in 2003, Ekiti was at the 36th position in WAEC and NECO exams but that by 2006, he had brought the state to the 1st position in the South West.
He, therefore urged people of the state to vote massively for him to become governor, promising that the PDP government under his leadership will bring an era of meaningful development and prosperity to the state.
At his campaign visit to Ido Ile, Fayose promised to construct a road linking the town with Imesi Ekiti, urging the people to obtain their voters’ cards and keep it safe.
“If you love me and want me to return as your governor, go and get your voter’s card ready and don’t release it to anybody”, he said.
