Ekiti 2018: Tinubu Urges Residents To Give PDP Red Card
The National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has called on Ekiti residents to get ready to give the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) a red card in the July 14 governorship election.
Tinubu said this on Tuesday during the APC governorship campaign for the flag bearer, Kayode Fayemi.
He called on members of the APC in Ekiti to equip themselves with their PVC noting that it is their tool to for change.
“What is the value of your stay here if you have no Permanent Voters registration Card (PVC)? That is your red card. On Election Day, that is when you will give PDP red card.
“This is a broom revolution. When I say APC, you say change. This is the only place where change is necessary. After that, what next, when we say APC, you say progress.”
Tinubu said further that Fayemi is fit to rule Ekiti State because he was once a governor of the state and also served as a Minister of the Federal Republic.
“Fayemi is your son. He is a friend of the President, vote Fayemi 100%,” he concluded.
Other key leaders, such Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, National Chairman,John Oyegun, Segun Oni, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, former governor Adams Oshiomhole, and governors Simon Lalong, Ibikunle Amosun, Abiola Ajimobi, Rauf Aregbesola, Rotimi Akeredolu, Yahaya Bello, Abdulaziz Yari and Abdulfatai Ahmed who also spoke, canvassed support for the APC candidate, describing him as the best alternative.
Fayemi, a former Minister of Steel and Solid Minerals and ex-governor of the state, is seeking a second term in office as governor.
After serving as governor of the state from 2010 to 2014, Fayemi was defeated at the polls by incumbent governor, Ayodele Fayose, of the PDP.
Although Fayose cannot contest in the election, he is backing his deputy, Professor Kolapo Olusola to succeed him.
