Fayemi Urges S’west to Vote Massively for Buhari in 2019

The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has told the people of South-west to vote massively for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential race to reciprocate the concentration of juicy political positions allotted to the zone under the All Progressives Congress (APC)- led government.

Fayemi reminded the voters about how the administration of Goodluck Jonathan had concentrated influential political appointments in a certain zone in the South while the South-west was allegedly neglected under his reign.

The governor spoke in Ado Ekiti Wednesday while receiving a letter from a group under the aegis of Artisan, Traders and Allied Technicians’ Association, Ekiti chapter, endorsing President Buhari for the 2019 presidential poll.

The letter was submitted to Fayemi for onward delivery to President Buhari by the state President of the association, Mr. Ebenezer Fadipe and members of his executive.

The group said they decided to support Buhari because of the landmark achievements he had recorded in every facet of the country’s economy and the virulent manner he has been prosecuting the war against corruption.

Receiving the letter, Fayemi said it will do the South-west a great deal of benefit to vote Buhari for rescuing the region from the political obscurity the PDP, under Jonathan, allegedly caused the zone.

“Under President Jonathan, we saw how the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, the Minister of Finance, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Chief of Staff to the President were concentrated in just two zones in the South while the South-west was abandoned.

“But when President Buhari came on board, he made a South-west person his vice-president, the Minister of Works, Power and Housing is from this zone, Minister of Health and other juicy positions were also allotted to the region.
