Group Advise Fayemi To Ensure Fulfilment Of All Promises Made During Campaign
Following the emergence of the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate, Dr.Kayode Fayemi in the just concluded Ekiti Election as the governor-elect of the state, the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) has advised that all promises made during the campaign should be fulfilled.
The group gave this advise today when reeling out a congratulatory message to Fayemi, the newly elected governor of Ekiti State.
The group which spoke through Chairman, Mr Ilesanmi Omolayo, noted that the emergence of Fayemi shows the will of the people and as such he should ensure that the people are not disappointed.
When addressing journalists on behalf of the group, Omolayo said, “We congratulate Dr Fayemi on his election as the new governor of our dear state and wish him all the best.”
“We believe the outcome of the election reflects the will of the people. The people actually spoke. “However, we urge Fayemi to see his victory as a call to service to meet the expectations of Ekiti people.”
“We advise him not to betray the trust reposed in him and disappoint them, but to work for the collective interest of everyone in the state.”
Speaking further, Omolayo also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), as he noted that the election was conducted in a free and fair manner which is the expected way in which an election should be carried out.
He opined that those claiming that the election was not credible are liars and should be ignored as he also praised the security agencies for carrying out their duties professionally.
In the words of Omolayo, “You see when some people’s expectations in elections are not realised, they tend to say all sorts of things. “For the records, the results of the last Saturday election in Ekiti were not manipulated. I can say this because IPAC monitored the whole process.”
Speaking further, he said, “in fact, I moved from one local government to another on the election day, and I can tell that the whole process was transparent. “At the final collation centre, I, as IPAC chairman, was the one that opened all the ballot boxes and everything was sorted out and counted in the presence of everybody.”
He appealed to all those aggrieved by the outcome of the election to put aside political sentiments and join forces with Fayemi in order to ensure the growth and development of the state.
Quoting him, “I urge everyone to put politics aside and accept the fact that the election was okay. We should all join hands with the governor-elect to move Ekiti forward.”
