The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has advised the governor-elect of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, to resist the temptation of vengeance and channel his energy to rebuilding the state.
Oshiomhole, in a congratulatory message issued yesterday by his Chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem, said the victory at the July 14, 2018 governorship election was not only for the APC but for the good people of Ekiti and Nigerians at large.
He urged Fayemi to work hard to reunite the party and take deliberate steps to ensure that the interests of all stakeholders were reflected in the governance of the state.
Oshiomhole also implored Fayemi to concentrate on the task of rebuilding the state after four years of what he called ‘PDP wreckage’.
“It is now time for the governor elect, Dr Fayemi to focus on the huge challenges ahead. We have no doubt in his ability to get tested and trusted hands who will work along with Ekiti people in the onerous task of repositioning the state.
“This victory which is coming three weeks after our National Convention is a huge vote of confidence on our party and the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“I congratulate Ekiti people for formally closing the remnants of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South West despite the intimidation, harassment they suffered in the hands of the out-going PDP government prior to the elections,” the statement also read.
