If truly our struggle is about service to our dear State, it is time to come together and channel all our resources towards the development of the State.
[wysija_form id=”1″]April 14, 2015 – Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has appealed to his opponent, the All Progressive Congress (APC) to sheath their sword and join hands with his government to fast track development of Ekiti State.
Fayose who was reacting to validation of his victory in the June 26 election by the Supreme Court said Ekiti people have been unequivocal about their choice and their determination to protect and defend the mandate they gave to him.
“I cannot but appreciate the Apex Court for protecting democracy and also for living to the expectation of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Hon. Justice Mahmud Mohammed, who had assured that under his leadership, the judiciary would not subscribe to any plot to change the outcome of elections through the instrumentality of the Court”, he said.
He added that the lesson learnt is that Nigeria is evolving democratically.
“To my opponents, I plead with you to sheath your sword and join me in the development of Ekiti State. If truly our struggle is about service to our dear State, it is time to come together and channel all our resources towards the development of the State.
“I am irrevocably committed to the protection of all, including the opposition in the State. Nobody is infallible, and I am not a perfect being. The only one that is perfect is God, but He, in His infinite mercies has made me the Governor of Ekiti State today.
“I have a term and tenure; there will be another opportunity for Ekiti people to decide who governs them. Rather than trouble the peace of the State, our friends in the opposition parties should accept the will of God concerning our dear State and wait till 2018”, he said.
