Ekiti 2018: House Of Reps Member, Others Dump PDP For APC by odiks: 6:43am On Jun 18, 2018
A House of Representatives member from Ekiti State, Mr. Olamide Oni and other People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chieftains have joined the All Progressives Congress (APC).

They defected to the APC on Saturday when the campaign train of the party’s governorship flag bearer rolled into communities in Irepodun/Ifelodun, Ekiti West, Ekiti Southwest and Efon Local Government Areas.

Oni, who represents Ekiti Central Federal Constituency II in the Green Chamber of the National Assembly, joined with his Personal Assistant, Mr. Banji Filani and scores of supporters in his hometown, Efon Alaaye.

Other communities visited by Fayemi and his team include Iwaji, Ipole-Iloro, Ikogosi, Erijiyan, Igbara-Odo, Ilawe, Igede and Iyin.

Thousands of crowds defied the rain in Ilawe to listen to Fayemi and other APC leaders.

Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu joined the rally at Ilawe to the admiration of the crowd urging Ekiti people to vote Fayemi to enjoy good governance and restoration of life-changing policies.

Others are Afolabi Olasope, a lawyer and former First Bank Secretary in Nigeria and Overseas, who also won Ekiti Central Constituency Two seat in the House of Representatives under UNCP. Aanu Oni, who is former Special Adviser in PDP administration, also defected.

Others included immediate past State Women Leader of PDP, Busola Oni; Dele Jeje, who is father of Efon Local Government Chairman, Bobby Jeje; and Local Government Woman Leader, Olomi Adeniyi.

Oni said: “PDP leaders are always fighting for personal benefits while the masses suffer and an example is the administration of Fayose in Ekiti. State.

“I was always insisting that they should make the general well-being of the people their focus, but they have always argued that they are in politics for personal benefit.

“After discovering that this is the tradition in PDP, I had to leave for a party that wants to work for the benefit of all as we have seen in all development projects by APC administration of Fayemi.”

Residents complained of neglect, unemployment, sufferings among the aged and salary payment default by the administration of Fayose, asking Fayemi to restore their hopes again.

Fayemi promised to continue all his social service programmes, including social security stipends for the elderly people, YCAD, volunteer scheme, entrepreneurship scheme, rural development, road construction and health services while workers and teachers will enjoy regular pay and promotions.

He regretted that not a single project was added to all the projects he executed in the communities visited, promising to complete all abandoned projects for the benefit of the people, adding that all his development and empowerment schemes would continue.

In particular, Fayemi promised to complete work on radio booster station in Efon, while the abandoned water project will also be completed.

The APC flag bearer promised good times for pensioners, assuring that retired people will receive their entitlements regularly.

He debunked insinuations by the opposition that he would ban okada operations and sack teachers and local government workers if he wins the election.

He said: “I am sure that by now Ekiti people would have had enough of Fayose’s lies. He has been going round to deceive Ekiti people that I will sack workers to dissuade them from voting for APC so that he can continue to inflict more pains on the people while he enjoys himself in government.

“I will never ban okada or sack teachers and local government workers because I am not a promoter of sufferings.

“I made salary payment my priority, including payment of teachers’ rural posting and core subjects allowances. We shall continue to fulfill this obligation, including looking for new ways to promote the welfare of all categories of workers.”

At Ikogosi where scores of PDP chiefs and no fewer than 50 other supporters defected to APC, residents lamented the closure of Ikogosi Resort and Gossy Water that resulted in job losses.

Fayemi assured that the business concerns would be reactivated to provide jobs for the residents.

He dismissed insinuations that he will sack teachers and local government workers, saying his records had shown that he was never an anti-worker governor.

Residents assured Fayemi that all the beneficiaries of his policies would work for his success at polls.

Fayemi assured the people of adequate security before, during and after the election.

State Chairman of APC, Chief Olajide Awe, urged supporters to mobilise at the unit level and ensure they get their voter cards ready to vote on election day.

Another big blow to PDP.
Ekiti people can now tell the difference between Fayemi's 1st term and Fayose's second coming.

Fayose is just a master of propaganda without any proper idea of what to do to advance the peoples socia and financial well being.

Fayose was just all about going from one market to another cutting ponmon and eating at various local bukas pretending to be close to the people.

Donald Duke had better try his luck at another party.

PDP is simply toxic, dead and buried.

Fayose will cry more than the bereaved when his candidate loses that election. I’m sure Eleka isn’t ready for politics but fayose forced the man because he is too easy to contro for fayose.

you have a very very good point here , if fayose knows that definitely pdp will win then he wont like to create problems for his party candidates , it seems fayose himself is not 100% certain of his party chances in the next election

I won't really pity ekiti people I swear because I have be aware what is to befall them if fayemi win. Fayemi was mandated by the fulani oligarchy to sign undertaken to allow herdsmen colony in ekiti and if he agrees they are with him and he agreed out of desperation hhhmmm...ekiti people remember this day that one guy warned you that benue situation will rise in ekiti, fayemi had mortgage your land already in wee hour agreement.
