The All Progressives Congress (APC) has appointed the Governor of Kebbi State, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu to head the Party’s 77-member National Campaign Council to ensure victory for the party’s governorship candidate, Dr. Kayode Fayemi at the July 14 Ekiti Governorship Election.

The campaign council, which was inaugurated on Thursday by the APC Deputy National Chairman (North), Sen. Lawali Shuaibu on behalf of the National Chairman,  John Oyegun consists of fourteen serving governors, ministers, some members of the party’s National Working Committee, National Assembly members and senior party leaders.

Speaking during the inauguration, Shuaibu while stressing the importance of the Ekiti governorship election to the party, urged the campaign council to shun hate speech in its campaign message to the people of Ekiti.

Shuaibu: “In the exercise your assignment, please avoid hate speech. Let us ensure that we don’t use hate speech during our campaigns. If other Parties do that, our concern should be to capture the hearts of the Ekiti people in going out to bring to an end the four-year comedy that has been going on there.

“The election in Ekiti is very important for the APC. Infact, we feel the level of importance of the election is slightly below the importance of the presidential election to us. We are not going to relent in our effort to win Ekiti State. The responsibility now rest on your shoulders.”

The National Organising Secretary, Sen. Osita Izunaso during the inauguration also expressed the party’s resolve to win the Ekiti governorship election. “The election should be a must win for our Party. We won that election before, it was taken away fraudulently. This time around, we want to win it again and retain it,” he said.

Bagudu who was represented by the Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, at the inauguration called for unity among the campaign council and all stakeholder to ensure victory, come July.
