There are notions that should the PDP be edged out of the July 14 elections, incumbent governor Fayose will be made to pay for his criticism of the President. For us in the APC, whenever there is a primary election, it is a family affair. "The manner of his so-called victory also leaves much to be desired as it has turned many of their party leaders and followers against him", he added.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday said that the success of the All Progress Congress governorship Primary (APC) in Ekiti State validates the credentials of the APC on internal democracy and its preparedness to take the country to another level of development.

"The APC is set to give Ekiti people a new lease of life through prioritization of time-tested policies capable of transforming the economy and provision of opportunities for wealth creation, social welfare, healthy living and food security".

Meanwhile, APC chieftain, Comrade Timi Frank has mocked APC chieftains who expressed dissatisfaction at the outcome of ward congresses of the party nationwide and the botched governorship primary in Ekiti, asking them to accept the result of their silence in the face of impunity. "The APC is falling apart everywhere". He may deceive them in Abuja but he is a paper weight at home. "I would like them to uphold the values and philosophy of the APC by joining hands to support Dr. Fayemi in the forthcoming elections". He said his mission would neither be to seek revenge against any individual or even a group of persons no matter political ill feelings they had against him. We are also glad that the Ekiti primary election has taken place and that the aspirants are working together to ensure that we win the governorship election in Ekiti state.

Bamidele said he would work hard with other like-minds across the state to ensure that the Minister triumphed in the election.

It would be recalled that Fayemi polled 941 votes to defeat his immediate predecessor and former APC Deputy National Chairman (South), Chief Segun Oni, who received 481 votes.

Of surprise was the performance of Kayode Ojo, a business tycoon, who trailed the two front-liners to come third.

He noted that it was only Ekiti state in the South West that was not in the APC fold, this he said, showed that the zone was APC.

Olusola of the PDP and Fayemi of the APC are major contenders to the governorship seat of Ekiti State in the coming July 14 governorship election in the state.
