Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), has described Ekiti is a state where change is necessary.
At the launch of the mega rally of APC’s governorship candidate, Mr Kayode Fayemi, in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, Tinubu said that Ekiti would join the progressives after the change.
“We will not take Ekiti back to the past. You all must use your Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to vote in APC.
“Your PVC is your red card. Use your PVC to give PDP a red card on July 14,’’ Tinubu advised the crowd.
Former Edo state governor, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, who spoke after Tinubu narrated how his plane was grounded and prevented from travelling from Benin to Ekiti in 2014 to campaign for Fayemi.
The APC National Chairman candidates said that the injustice meted on him in 2014 was a play of dictatorship of the past administration,
He urged Ekiti people not to be afraid because those who assisted in perpetrating the crime have been relegated.
The national leader in company of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the party’s national chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, stormed Ekiti to drum support for the APC candidate.
“What is the value of staying here today, if you don’t have a PVC?” Mr Tinubu asked the huge crowd at the rally.
“Your PVC is your red card. In football after showing a yellow card, the next is a red card. We have given the PDP a yellow card earlier. On the 14th of July, give the PDP a red card.”
Mr Tinubu urged the voters to ensure that their PVCs were ready to ensure they vote for the APC candidate, Mr Fayemi to become the next governor.
He noted that Mr Fayemi had served as a Minister and that he is a friend of the President and so would bring progress to the state.
Also speaking at the rally, former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, said Ekiti people should vote out the PDP, because the incumbent governor was not supposed to win in the 2014 election.
“We know that the PDP did not win that election,” Mr Oshiomhole said.
“Ekiti are most educated in Nigeria and they could not have voted for a roadside plantain maker,”
He urged the people to restore the pride of the state by voting massively for Mr Fayemi on July 14.
Mr Fayemi lost his re-election bid in 2014 to Mr Fayose. The latter’s current deputy, Kolapo Olusola, is the PDP candidate in next month’s election. (NAN)
