Prominent APC governorship candidate, Opeyemi Bamidele has urged the electorate to fully accept the apology rendered by Dr. Kayode Fayemi over perceived infractions while he was in office between 2010 and 2014. Bamidele who was also an aspirant spoke with newsmen following a meeting with his canvassers in a post-primary consultation at Iyin-Ekiti during which he urged all other aspirants to fully throw their support behind Fayemi’s candidature.
Bamidele who had a brutal fallout with Fayemi before the 2014 election and subsequently campaigned on the platform of Labour Party in that election urged all aspirants to put aside their differences in the interest of the APC and the state saying that he was very confident on Fayemi’s capacity to redress what he lamented as the perceived failures of the PDP administration.
“Dr. Fayemi in the full glare of everybody apologized to the teachers, civil servants, artisans and those who might have been affected by his policies as a governor; I beg our people to accept his apologies. “We have resolved to align Ekiti State and her good people with the progressive transformation being championed by the APC-led government of President Buhari, and no stone shall be left unturned in ensuring that this dream is achieved,” he said. Bamidele warned that the PDP was already latching on the existing cracks in the party to destabilize the party.
“This is a calculated plot to destabilise and demonise the APC and give victory to their party in the July 14 election through the back door, but I am certain that the desperate and mischievous agenda of the PDP will fail on a final note”, he said.
