We are ready to take over Ekiti in October, SDP’s governorship aspirant boasts


CANDIDATE of the Social Democratic Party candidate (SDP) in the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti State, Mr Akinloye Aiyegbusi, has boasted that he and his party are set to take over Ekiti State government come October.
Speaking at a rally to formally flag-off the party’s governorship campaign in Ado Ekiti, at the weekend, Aiyegbusi called on Governor Ayodele Fayose to start preparing his handover notes “for a proper hand over to the government of SDP to be led by me.”
The national leadership of the party had also officially presented the party’s flag to him at the mega rally, with the leaders also formally presenting his running mate, Mrs Mary Yemisi Adefolalu, to the people of the state.
The SDP candidate said that he is the David that Ekiti was yearning for to deliver them from the oppressive governments that have been traumatizing the people since 1999.
He urged the people not to despair anymore because their time of liberation from poverty, insecurity, unemployment and disease has come.
Ayegbusi urged the youths in the state to embrace the SDP which has produced one of them as the candidate so that there can total generational shift of governance to the youths.
“We are often deceived by the old order that youths are leaders of tomorrow. I have been hearing that since I was born, but the same people saying this have refused to quit the corridor of power.
“Therefore, we are no longer comfortable with youth being leaders of tomorrow, our time is now and we must take it through legal and constitutional means.
“If we the youths are determined, we can do it. We can take over government and do great wonders. We have the population of voters that can make it happen. This does not mean that we will jettison the wise counsel of the old.
“As for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) government in Ekiti led by Governor Ayodele Fayose, I am using this medium to tell him to start writing his handover note for the government of SDP which will take over from him in October this year,” he said.
