Kayode Fayemi holds massive rally in Ekiti state

THE Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has visited the secretariat of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ado Ekiti to formally state his intent to contest the July 14, 2018 governorship election and said he was running to rescue the state from alleged misrule by the current administration in the state.

Fayemi alleged that the election was manipulated by soldiers in connivance with Fayose and two former ministers.

Senator Biodun Olujimi, the Deputy Minority Whip of the Senate, has announced her intention to seek the nomination of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) for the Governorship of Ekiti State.

According to her, she is in the race to bridge the gap between the people of the state and the government and to improve the well-being of the people of the state, lamenting that most Ekiti graduates are now "Okada" riders.

"Buhari is our leader, he is our President and he is the leader of our party".

The battle for the number one seat in Oke Bareke, Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State, has begun.

Mr. Fayemi is the 37th aspirant seeking the APC governorship ticket.

Fayemi said: " I am in the race to win.

"Yes, I am holding an important position in this government through the grace of God and by the magnanimity of our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, and I am satisfied with it if politics that I play is for me and my family alone". In fact, I am coming too late. There is no single aspirant in APC who will not do more fantastic works than what we are getting in Ekiti under Fayose among all the aspirants on the APC platform.

Egypt, Russia resume flights halted after 2015 plane bombing
Egypt has kept Rafah largely sealed off since 2013, after the coup against Egypt's elected Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. An Aeroflot flight from Moscow arrived in Cairo early Thursday.

"They have the white paper".

Fayemi said: "When I come before you, it is with profound need for the unfinished business, we need to complete what we started, reclaim our land and restore our land".

Some of his supporters described him as a man whom the cap fits.

He said that while there was nothing wrong in a governor supporting a particular aspirant, what was bad was the coercing of party members to endorse the so called anointed candidate. "We will ensure that he will end up in jail".

Dismissing the opposition's claim that he hates workers and teachers, Fayemi stressed that workers enjoyed most during his administration when they enjoyed salary increase three times. I paid rural allowance to teachers, core subjects' allowance, paid scholarship and bursary, paid for WAEC and NECO, but all these have been stopped by a government that has no interest in social investment.

"We thought you are educated, we thought you are exposed, how do you come up with a character like this as governor?"

"There is much that we have to fix and redress in Ekiti before we can go forward".

"It is time to put a stop to that; it is not about title, it is about sacrifice and whatever it will take us to free Ekiti from these criminal and rapacious brigands, we will do it".
