EKITI 2014: More supports as Fayemi takes campaign to Ikole

Non-indigenes resident in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State have pledged their support for Governor Kayode Fayemi in the June 21 governorship election.

Below is all the excerpt from OsunDefender reports...
The ethnic nationalities, including the Tiv, Idoma, Igede and Ebira who turned out for the All Progressives Congress (APC) rallies held in Oke-Ako, Irele and Ipao communities yesterday, said they had benefited immensely from the Fayemi administration.

They said Fayemi’s construction of roads in rural communities contributed “immensely” to the conveying of farm produce to the urban areas.
The campaign train took Fayemi to Ayebode, Odo-Ayedun, Oke-Ayedun, Iyemero, Itapaji and Odo-Oro. Continue...

A prominent Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Oke Ayedun, Mr. Adebisi Ogunsakin, defected to the APC along with his supporters at the rally held in the town.

The governor also received royal blessings from the traditional rulers of the communities who appreciated him for spreading dividends of democracy to their people.

Fayemi said his administration did not neglect any community, nothing that the APC government has given all communities what is due to them.

These, according to him, include road, payment of monthly stipends to the aged, youth employment, grants to finance projects in rural communities, renovation of schools, payment of special allowances to teachers in rural areas and empowerment of farmers with loans and equipment.

The governor said Ikole Local Government area is one of the councils to be divided into smaller administrative units when the panel on creation of new councils concludes its assignment.

He urged the electorate to come out en masse to vote for APC on June 21.
