Adams Oshiomhole, former of governor Edo state, says the past four years of administration in Ekiti state was for the thief “but July 14 is for the owner”.
He said this at a rally for Kayode Fayemi, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday.
He urged Ekiti people not to be afraid “because those who assisted in perpetrating crime have been relegated.”
“Those people are no longer there; there is no more need to be afraid. Come out and vote on July 14. You will be protected,” he said.
“The good news is that on July 14, Fayemi will be the candidate you will vote for. It will no longer be bad for Ekiti but good. The past four years was for the thief, but July 14 is for the owner.’’
Bola Tinubu, a national leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), described Ekiti as a state where “change is necessary”.
He said Ekiti would join the progressives after the change.
“We will not take Ekiti back to the past. You all must use your permanent voters card (PVC) to vote in APC,” he said.
“Your PVC is your red card. Use your PVC to give PDP a red card on July 14.”
Also speaking at the rally, Dayo Adeyeye, former governorship aspirant of PDP who defected to APC, said that PDP had died in Ekiti state.
“PDP died in Ekiti since May 29. I have decamped from PDP and many others would soon join the APC,” he said.
John Odigie-Oyegun, national chairman of APC, received Adeyeye and other defecting PDP party chieftains.
He congratulated them and assured that “we will be here to celebrate victory’’.
