The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), in Ekiti State, Akitoye Oladele Ayegbusi, has declared that he would become the next governor in the state with a landslide victory
Ayegbusi, who received his nomination form in Abuja from the SDP headquarters yesterday was welcomed back to Ekiti state by large number of his supporters, amidst excitement and encomiums.
The 44year -old Ayegbusi emerged as the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party in a free, fair and transparent primary election process held recently in Ado Ekiti.
Many have considered the political party -SDP as being nurtured and projected to be the ‘third political force’ as Nigerians prepare towards another general elections in 2019.
The Social Democratic Party in a statement said, ”this is the time for the youths of Ekiti State to take over the governance of the State and jettison the old and selfish political elements in the state who are bound and desperate to calve out a niche for themselves and form a political empire that will forever subject the entire Ekiti people and most especially the youths into an economy slavery , servitude and continue to recycle themselves, their families, children and surrogates into political positions and powers at the expense of this generation.
It added that “those who have made up their minds to sit on the destiny of Ekiti State in order to continue trading and giving out peanuts to blindfold the people from the original should this time around be shown the way out.
Speaking at the SDP secretariat in Basiri, Ado Ekiti; Ayegbusi promised a better time in the state if elected on July 14th, 2018.
He promised to put an end to economy slavery, servitude, unpaid workers salaries, stop the misappropriation of the state resources to private pockets and focus on job creation to alleviate the sufferings of the Ekiti youths.
