The All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State as he marks his 55th birthday.
In a statement issued by the national publicity secretary of APC, Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC said Governor Fayemi, who is also the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), in the last 25 years, has etched his name in the nation’s democratic history as a dogged pro-democracy activist.
The statement said also that the governor is a social justice advocate and reformer, who staked all alongside other patriots to birth the democratic freedom which Nigerians enjoy today.
According to the statement, “The era of theatrics and misgovernance in Ekiti state is clearly now in the past. As the Chief Executive of Ekiti State, Fayemi continues to uphold and promote the progressive ideals, which our great party is known for.
“The many developmental initiatives being undertaking by the Fayemi administration are greatly impacting on the state and the people of Ekiti would surely be better of.
“In his current assignment as the Chairman of the cross-partisan NGF, Dr. Fayemi has, unarguably, positioned the Forum to work constructively with the President Muhammadu Buhari government to rebuild our dear country. Dr. Fayemi is a worthy representative of our great party.”
APC therefore wished the governor sound health and wisdom to continue to render selfless services to the people of Ekiti State, Nigeria and the party.
