House of Representatives member-elect in Ekiti State, Olusola Fatoba, has said the landslide victory recorded by President Muhammadu Buhari in the presidential poll, is an indication that power has returned to poor Nigerian Masses.
Fatoba, who won on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, noted that the victory had not only further strengthened the power of the masses but also confirmed that Nigerians were appreciative of the federal government’s programmes and policies.
Fatoba, who was elected during the February 23 election to represent Ado/Irepodun/Ifelodun federal constituency also added that the superlative performance of Governor Kayode Fayemi and women empowerment of the governor’s wife, Bisi, accounted for the APC’s good showings in Ekiti.
In a chat with journalists in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, Fatoba reminded the ruling elite that Buhari had demystified their powers and brought recognition to the masses.
“The victory of President Muhammadu Buhari has elevated the powers of the electorate and their relevance about who should become the president of our dear nation. In the past, few elites dictated the pace in the politics of the nation, but now President Buhari has brought a paradigm shift to our politics and people have now taken ownership of government,” he said.
