The Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari has lamented loss of value, forthrightness integrity of the people of Ekiti State in the hands of Ayodele Fayose – the current Governor of Ekiti State.
He said this at the Presidential Villa Abuja, while hosting members of the All Progressive Congress (APC), South West zone.
In this meeting, he emphasized the need for the All Progressive Congress (APC) to restore their lost values as well as restore Ekiti and other States in the South West Geopolitical Zone to their place of pride and value.
Mr. President in his speech said:
“I know Ekiti fairly well and Ekiti people are well known for their forthrightness, candour and integrity.
“All of these values seem to have been lost and we must restore these values and return Ekiti to its pride of place in the comity of states.
“As we approach the 2019 elections, the return of Ekiti into the fold of progressive states is important as the election of July 14 is going to be a key pointer to subsequent elections.
“On my part, let me reassure you that you can count on my support. But charity must begin at home. I urge Ekiti leaders and the leaders from the South-West to take this assignment seriously so that the APC can laugh last in the July election. It is only then that we will all be beneficiaries of victory.
“Let us return to the field to work hard and deliver victory to our great party.”
