The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has boasted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not win the 2018 governorship election in the Ekiti State.

Ekiti State chapter of the party made this statement on Sunday, alleging that the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Kayode Fayemi had allegedly earlier boasted of providing N8 billion from his own pocket for the poll.

According to the PDP, the “APC is budgeting N7.5 billion, three months allocation of Ekiti State for a mere governorship election while Fayemi is boasting of having N8 billion his personal money to spend and N20 billion from the Presidency, making N35.5 billion? What special interest do they have in Ekiti that will require spending of N35.5 billion on mere governorship election?

“In one year, Ekiti State cannot get N35.5 billion as share from the federation account and the question is; of what benefit will the N35.5 billion be for the people of Ekiti? Why not spend just half of the N35.5 billion on infrastructural development of Ekiti State?

“To us in Ekiti State PDP, no amount of money will buy the conscience and integrity of Ekiti people. Ekiti people are mindful of the party that plunged the State into debt and collapsed the economy of the country.

“Talking about spending N35.5 billion on Ekiti election is an insult on the collective sensibilities of Ekiti the people. Not even when the APC federal government has not done anything for the State since it took power in 2015.”

The statement added that, “The reality the leadership of APC in Abuja must begin to face from now is that even if the entire treasury of the federal government is opened and deployed to Ekiti State from today till July 14, it won’t save the party from losing the governorship election.”
