Daily Courier – The ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC), has congratulated the people of Ekiti State for electing Mr. Biodun Oyebanji at the governorship election held across the state on June 18, 2022
A statement signed by Barr. Felix Morka, the National Publicity Secretary, All Progressives Congress (APC) today June 19, reads:
“As we savour the joy and euphoria of victory in the just-concluded gubernatorial election in Ekiti State, the All Progressives Congress (APC) wishes to congratulate and profoundly appreciate the wonderful people of Ekiti State for reaffirming their confidence in our party by rallying round the Governor-Elect, Biodun Oyebanji.”
He stated that the well-deserved victory in Ekiti State was an eloquent testimony of the acceptance of the APC under the visionary leadership of president, the sagacity of the national chairman of the party, and the uncommon commitment of other members of the National Working Committee (NWC).
“It bears mentioning that the towering accomplishments of incumbent Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode John Fayemi, provided a solid predicate for this decisive victory. We thank you for your service to your State and Country.
“We pay a special tribute to the Governor Atiku Bagudu-led Campaign Council for discharging their assignment with extraordinary commitment and efficiency. We salute our dogged Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, our APC Governors, National Secretary, Sen. Iyiola Omisore, among other party leaders, for their highly valued contribution to this success” the statement reads.
He further bemoaned the opposition for coming a distance third in spite of its rescue mantra.
“Unsurprisingly, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) finished a distant third position in the just-concluded election. Despite its claim to a self-serving and self-assigned rescue mission of Nigeria, the people of Ekiti State and, by extension, Nigerians are not, in any way, deceived by the ceaseless propaganda of a desperate party that only seeks a return to power to continue its ruinous escapades” it added.
“As we inch towards the 2023 general elections, we urge the people of Ekiti State and Nigerians, in general, to sustain their support for our party by voting overwhelmingly for all APC candidates as the party remains unwavering in its commitment to improving the quality of governance and standard of living of all Nigerians” the statement concluded.
