Ekiti primary: Oni threatens to dump APC

"I will work with APC with my teeming supporters for us to win this election and I charge other aspirants to imbibe the same spirit", he said.

He also sarcastically thanked the APC for making winning easier for the People's Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Prof.

"I am aware that very soon we will set up the national campaign committee for Ekiti state and also have another meeting with the aspirants to properly integrate them into what we are doing because ultimately, victory is our end result and we believe that by the special grace of God, the people of Ekiti will regain the mandate that they gave to APC four years ago, that was stolen". Kolapo Olusola, who is the incumbent Deputy Governor of the state. Fayemi should not celebrate this pyrrhic victory yet because it is nothing but a flame that will be quenched on July 14.

In his tweet, he said: "I thank the APC for giving Ekiti people a candidate they love to vote against at all times". For us in the APC, whenever there is a primary election, it is a family affair. However, Ayodele Fayose, the outgoing governor, has promised him the worst political defeat of his career in July. And whenever we finish our primary elections, and aspirants and stakeholders come together to work as a team, it gladdens our heart as a party. His arrogance alienates Ekiti people and any serious politician from him.

Recall that the minister had polled 941 votes at the just held APC primary in Ekiti, beating Segun Oni who scored 481 votes at the primary election. In the July 14 election.

Instead, Fayemi noted that his victory at the APC governorship primary on Saturday has signaled the beginning of battle to rescue the state from bad governance, poverty and desecration of Ekiti values allegedly wreaked on the people by the People's Democratic Party (PDP) administration.

I'm not on revenge mission-Fayemi Ekiti state All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship flag bearer, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has stated that his desire to return to power is not to revenge the loss he suffered in 2014 but to better the lives of the citizenry.

"We are resolved to align Ekiti State and her good people with the progressive transformation being championed by the APC-led government of President Buhari and no stoned shall be left un-turned in ensuring that this dream is achieved", he said.
