The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi has dedicated the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in all the elective positions in the 2019 general elections to the electorate in Ekiti State.
The Governor explained that the victory has placed a burden of performance on the party.
Fayemi made the assertion at the Government House Chapel, Ado Ekiti on Sunday, where a thanksgiving mass was held for the House of Assembly members elected on APC platform in Saturday’s State Assembly election in the state.
All the newly elected members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly and the newly elected members of the National Assembly as well as chieftains of the party in the state attended the thanksgiving service.
Fayemi said the APC in the state has no excuse for non-performance now that Ekiti people have demonstrated their confidence in the party by overwhelmingly voting for the party in the just concluded elections.
He emphasized that he and the newly elected federal and state lawmakers are accountable to Ekiti people for all the successes and the inadequacies of the next four years.
Governor Fayemi said: “I am grateful to God that we won all the seats but that also places a burden on us. We cannot blame anybody if things don’t go well in Ekiti. So, we have a burden to perform because we are the one in charge. We have all the seats. We cannot pass the buck. We are accountable to Ekiti people for all the successes and the inadequacies of the next four years.”
Governor Fayemi who thanked God for the peaceful conduct of the polls in Ekiti State, condoled with the families of those who lost their lives in other parts of the country; attributing the hitch-free and violence free election in Ekiti to the grace of God.
Also speaking at the thanksgiving service, a chieftain of the APC, Engr. Kayode Ojo traced the victory of the APC to the rejection of the People’s Democratic Party by the people of the state, following the barbaric rule of the previous four years in the state.
“The wish of the people has prevailed. The last four years in the state was barbaric and the people didn’t want that anymore. They want sanity and development. That is why they voted for APC. The election conducted was peaceful.
