Ekiti ‘22: AP candidate, Famuyibo intensifies sensitisation drive round state

Razaq Bamidele

As June 18, 2022 election date for Ekiti State governorship poll inches in, the governorship candidate of the Accord Party (AP), Basorun Reuben Famuyibo, has intensified his sensitisation drive of his party members and the electorate to Ido-Ekiti, Iddo/Osi Local Government Area in the Ekiti North senatorial district.

According to a statement from his media aide, Jide Omojolomoloju, Famuyibo held a town hall meeting with members and stakeholders of the party where he further unveiled his plans to take Ekiti to a greater height if given the mandate to do so on June 18.

One of the highlight of the rally, according to the statement was when a 1995 beneficiary of Famuyibo’s scholarship scheme, Mr. Olatunde Babatunde, came out to testify to governorship candidate’s interest in the development of Ekiti and indigenes. About 1,571 indigenes of old Ondo State, comprising present Ondo and Ekiti states, had so far benefited in the scheme.

Babatunde, who said he accidentally stumbled on the meeting and was unaware that Basorun Famuyibo was around insisted that, “a vote for Famuyibo is a vote for prosperity, upliftment and freedom of Ekiti and her people from the shackles of slavery.”

Leaders and stakeholders of the party in attendance at the meeting included the chairmen of the AP in Ido wards 1 and 2, Messrs Sola Olofinmuwagun and Omotayo Ajayi, respectively.

Others in attendance also were, AP chairman for Orin/Ora ward, Peter Omotoso; and Ido ward 1 Woman Leader, Mrs Oluwafunmike Ojo among others.

In his speech, Famuyibo explained that he was in the race because his people in Ekiti has suffered enough under successive administrations of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), adding that enough is enough of the suffering and unnecessary hardship.

His words: “In the last 12 years, Ekiti and her people had been taken for granted and for a ride. We have had enough of the lies and shenanigans. Enough is enough. But if we say enough is enough, then we have to rise up in unison and do the needful, which is to go out on election day en masse to vote the Accord Party to power.

Going down the memory lane on his contribution to the creation of the state, the governorship candidate said that his dream for Ekiti State and her people are different from what is happening now, promising to ensure that the situation would be changed for the better under his administration if given the mandate.

Party leaders and stakeholders in attendance pledged their support for the realisation of Famuyibo’s governorship aspiration ambition and plans to make Ekiti great again.
