Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), said that no other party can take power away from the APC.
He said that the APC had done so much to improve the country that it would be hard for any other political party to beat it in an election.
Tinubu made the statement on Tuesday at the Ekiti Parapo Pavilion in Ado-Ekiti. This was the last big event of the APC’s governorship campaign in Ekiti.
He said that, based on the progress made by the government led by President Muhammadu Buhari, it would be hard for any other political party to take over right now or in the near future.
Tinubu put to rest worries that the just-ended presidential primary election would lead to fighting within the APC by saying that it was making the party stronger, more stable, and more united than before.
He told the people of Ekiti that if they vote for APC in the June 18 governorship election and the general elections in 2023, they will see more development and benefits of democracy.
“No house is a home without a fight. Democracy is full of twists and turns, hills and valleys, but we can’t burn down the house. I won’t be a part of that. Not only am I a builder, but I’m also a good one.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has asked me to tell APC members, especially those in Ekiti, to work for the unity, stability, and progress of our dear party before the 2023 elections.
“Use your Permanent Voter’s Cards (PVCs) to vote for Mr. Biodun Oyebanji, the APC governorship candidate, in the election on June 18 and in the general election.
“By doing this, you’ll keep getting the same progress in Ekiti and Nigeria as a whole that you’re getting from the APC-led government,” said the former governor of Lagos State.
Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of APC, asked voters, especially APC members, to vote for the party’s candidate for governor in the June 18 election.
Adamu said that the people of Ekiti should vote for the APC candidate to replace Gov. Kayode Fayemi so that he could keep doing good things and run for APC in all future elections.
The APC national chairman said that the Ekiti governorship election was a “pointer election” for the party and urged voters to help the party win.
What he said was:
“After Bola Tinubu was elected, this is our first job. We want you to make sure that APC wins on June 18.”
In the same way, Ekiti Governorship Campaign Committee Chairman Gov. Abubakar Baguda asked voters to make the ruling party proud by voting for its candidate in Saturday’s election.
“We hope the election on Saturday, June 18 goes well.” Biodun Oyebanji is the best choice for our party, so vote for him.”
Earlier, Ekiti APC Chairman Paul Omotoso said that the party’s mandate was based on Gov. Kayode Fayemi’s good work, President Muhammadu Buhari’s accomplishments, and Biodun Oyebanji’s background.
He told the people to vote for the APC candidate and make sure their votes are protected in any way that is legal.
The APC flag was given to Oyebanji and his deputy, Mrs. Mojisola Afuye. This was the most exciting part of the event.
The News Agency of Nigeria says that Governors Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna, Umaru Zulum of Borno, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara, Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa, and Gboyega Oyetola of Osun were all there.
Gov. Simon Lalong from Plateau, Gov. Badaru Abubakar from Jigawa, Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu from Lagos State, Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu from Ondo State, Gov. Umar Ganduje from Kano State, Gov. Inuwa Yahaya from Gombe State, Gov. Dapo Abiodun from Ogun, and Gov. Kayode Fayemi, who was in charge of the event, were
