ayo-fayose1The Pan Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, and the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP), on Sunday congratulated the governor-elect of Ekiti, Mr Ayo Fayose.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that INEC on Saturday declared Fayose, the PDP candidate, as winner of the governorship election in Ekiti.

Afenifere spokesman, Mr Yinka Odumakin, told NAN that the election of Fayose reflected the people’s choice.

“The Ekiti people have spoken and we congratulate the governor elect”, Odumakin said.

Odumakin, however, urged the governor-elect to utilise the opportunity of his re-election to correct any mistakes he may have made during his first term.

“He should come to office with better maturity and make life better for the Ekiti people”, the afenifere spokesman said.

He further urged Fayose to govern with the fear of God and justify the trust reposed in him by his people.

The South West Secretary of the CNPP, Mr Austin Nnorom, also urged Fayemi to accept defeat in the spirit of sportsmanship.

He urged the people of Osun to emulate the conduct of Ekiti people by making sure that their votes counted.

In a related development, the Ndigbo Cultural Society of Nigeria (NCSN) has urged the governor-elect to ensure that the interests of the Ndigbo community in the state were taken into consideration.

The group, in a congratulatory message signed by its President, Chief Udoka Udeogaranya, said promoting a spirit of inclusion would enable non-indigenes contribute their quota to the development of the state. (NAN)

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
