Mr. Kayode Fayemi incumbent Governor of Ekiti State has said those opposed to the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari are eyeing the nation’s resources which they intend to loot.
Governor Fayemi said Nigerians should ignore the people he described as enemies of the country and cast their votes for Buhari, who he said would continue to work for the development of the country and liberation of the masses.
The Ekiti state governor who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji, spoke in Ado Ekiti, the state capital on Tuesday while receiving members of the Ekiti State Private Sectors Union who are drumming support for PMB’s re-election.
“Those who are against Buhari’s re-election are the enemies of the country who want to continue to loot the nation’s economy after their 16-year rule,” he appealed.
He however appreciated their support for President Buhari, Mr. Fayemi assured members of the union that they would be allowed participation in governance in the state.
Governor Fayemi said there would be no development when the private sector was paralysed.
The group chairman, Mr. Gbenga Abiodun, said they embarked on the rally for President Buhari because of His fight against corruption, which he said had blocked leakages in all sectors of the economy.
The group leader advised people of the state to re-elect Buhari “so that the state could benefit from the laudable programmes of the Federal Government such as the extension of the proposed rail project to Ekiti which will in no small measure boost the economy of the state when completed”.
Mr. Abiodun also acknowledged the government’s Social Investment Programmes and the rehabilitation of Akure-Ado Ekiti-Ikare Road among other programmes which the state would gain from Buhari’s second term.
“We are requesting more federal presence in terms of loan/grant for the private sectors union, infrastructural development, tourism, agriculture and more dividends of democracy and more importantly refund of the funds expended on federal roads in Ekiti State.
“We are assuring President Buhari of his re-election into office in 2019 and we are pledging our support for the project,” he supposed.
