‘Join hands with Fayemi to develop Ekiti’
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Prince Adesola Gold,
has charged the newly elected members of the Ekiti State House of
Assembly to partner Governor Kayode Fayemi for good governance.
Adesola, a House of Representatives aspirant in the last APC’
primaries, said harmonious relationship between the executives and
legislature would guarantee speedy and quantum socio-economic
He further urged them to refrain from any crisis that could derail
governance in the state, saying the current administration was aptly
determined to bring dividends of democracy to the people.
In the House of Assembly election conducted on March 9, the APC
won 25 of the 26 seats while that of Ekiti East constituency II, was
declared inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral
A new assembly will be inaugurated by Governor Fayemi on June 6,
the day the tenure of the present one will elapse.
Speaking in Osun Ekiti in Moba Local Government Area of the state,
Gold assured that with the calibre of governor like Fayemi, that the
lawmakers can’t be reduced to mere rubber stamps in the discharge
of their duties.
He added that the alleged suppression which characterized the
assembly under former governor Ayodele Fayose won’t dog the
assembly that will be constituted in June.
“Under the immediate past government, lawmakers voices were
subjugated, nobody dares looked the governor in the eyes.
“Those lawmakers who tried to assert themselves were suspended
indefinitely and some were expelled from the party despite being
members of the PDP.
“But with the kind of refined governor like Fayemi that we have, I am
sure that there would be mutual respect and there will be partnership
that will make Ekiti great in all spheres.
“I want to also charge the lawmakers to come with the determined
mindsets to serve Ekiti and not to engage in any battle with the
executive”, he said.
Speaking about the patterns of voting, which predominantly favoured
APC; Gold added that the electorate in Ekiti are now better informed
about how to make the right choices for good governance.
“Our people decided to vote for real governance and moved away
from stomach infrastructure at the detriment of Infrastructural
“The four Local Governments of Efon, Ikere, Emure and Ado-Ekiti,
won by PDP in July 14 Governorship Election were not left behind,
they all moved with the moving train of the Next Level.
“In less than six months in office, governor Fayemi has opened our
eyes to how a globally recognised government should be and I
applaud our people for believing in APC and took the right choices”.
He, however, urged the elected officials to work hard and carry their
constituents along , in order not to betray the confidence reposed in
them by the electorate.
Yes governance is a collective efforts. Join hands together.
That will be great
