The Non-indigeneous Coalition and the Private Sector Unions (PSU)  in Ekiti State have held a solidarity rally in support of candidates of the  All Progressive Congress (APC) ahead of Saturday House of Assembly poll.

The unions at a rally in Ado- Ekiti, the state capital, on Tuesday,  said the peaceful atmosphere during the election was not unconnected to the all-inclusive government of Governor Kayode Fayemi which has enabled all stakeholders to  be part  of the electioneering process.

In a statement signed by the Secretary to the Private Sector Union, Prince Aladeloye Oroya, the union commended Dr Kayode  Fayemi for his “selfless and detribalized politics” which has endeared the governor to Ekiti people.

Oroya said the victory of the APC in Ekiti State was a product of Fayemi’s “unparalleled generosity and sportsmanship as well as President Muhammadu Buhari’s “personal integrity and public office records”.

The State President of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief Nathaniel Uzoma, in his comment,  said the rally was organized to felicitate with Buhari on his victory; adding that the outcome of the election amounted to an endorsement of the people-oriented programmes of the Buhari-led Federal government.

“Your Excellency, we have come to congratulate you on the victory of President Buhari. All of us cannot go to Abuja but we know that you, as our very good friend, can extend our goodwill message to the president,  he said.

The chairman of Hausa community in the state, Badamosi Mahadi, also commended the governor for creating a peaceful environment for the election to hold in the State; noting that it is only in Ekiti State that ballot snatching and violence were not recorded during the polls.

Mahadi called on all Hausa people in the state to come out en masse on Saturday and vote for all the House of Assembly candidates of the  APC  in the State.

Responding, Governor Fayemi thanked the unions and non indigenous groups for rallying support for him and the APC in the last election.

Fayemi who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Mr Biodun Omoleye said his government believes in peace because development can only thrive in an atmosphere of peace.

The governor said the hitch-free election in the State was made possible by the cooperation and unity demonstrated by all ethnic groups in the State.
