Ahead of the APC campaign rally in Ekiti State, the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has met with the council of traditional rulers in the state.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports that Tinubu and his entourage arrived the popular Ekiti Parapo Pavilion, Ado-Ekiti for a rally on Friday.
Tinubu, who arrived at the rally at exactly 2:45 pm, was accompanied by Ekiti Governor, Biodun Oyebanji, ex-Governor Kayode Fayemi and Senator Dayo Adeyeye among other top chieftains of the party.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports that earlier, Governor Oyebanji had said that the state was indebted to Tinubu and would pay back with massive votes during next month’s election.
Oyebanji stated this during the inauguration of the 143-member APC State Presidential Campaign Council in Ado-Ekiti.
He described the former Lagos State Governor as the indisputable father of progressive politics in the country who should be well supported for the nation’s number job.
The governor, who was joined at the inauguration ceremony by the immediate past Governor of the State, Kayode Fayemi, said Tinubu was a benefactor to the progressive family in Ekiti State, adding that his support for the progressives in the early years of the struggle was unquantifiable.
He noted the APC Presidential Candidate as the most qualified among all the candidates jostling for the presidential seat in terms of competence, capacity, courage, experience and sagacity.
“This time, we are searching for the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Our Party, the All Progress Congress (APC) has presented the best man for the job. We are no strangers to the candidate of our party, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu is the indisputable father of progressive politics in Nigeria.
“He ticks all the boxes for competence, courage, character, excellence, experience and sagacity. In terms of political acumen, he is a living legend; and when it comes to his ability and capacity to govern, he is a mile ahead of his strongest rivals.
“Here in Ekiti, he was our benefactor in the progressive family. He was politically there for us in our toddling years. It is time for us to feed the leader who once nursed us.
“The duty is now ours to go from house to house, shelter to shelter, and place to place to ensure that our party and candidate win convincingly. For us in Ekiti, our target is to be the State that returns the highest percentage of votes to APC and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu come February 25, 2023.”
