Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, has urged the people of the state to vote enmass for President Muhammadu Buhari during the next monthpresidential election slated for February 16, 2018.
Egbeyemi also enjoined the people of the state to keep faith with the party at the centre, the All Progressives Congress (APC), to enjoy better standard of living and good governance.

Egbeyemi made the remarks in his office on Thursday in Ado-Ekiti, when he received in audience officials of the state chapter of the Presidential Support Committee for Buhari/Osinbajo who paid him a courtesy visit in his office .
Egbeyemi stressed that the APC-led Federal Government deserves the votes of Ekiti people, owing to numerous projects being executed in the state.
Some of the projects he mentioned include the Federal Secretariat complex, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) complex, the Federal Housing Estate, federal road projects and social investment programmes among others.
The deputy governor, however, advised various campaign groups working for the re-election of the Buhari-Osinbajo ticket to work towards achieving victory at the polls.
According to him: “I congratulate you on your appointment; I have received many support groups promoting the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and that is good for the task ahead.
