He said the party cannot afford to lose the Ekiti state election, the more reason all the warring parties within the must bury their hatchets and come together to ensure victory for the party’s candidate in the Saturday’s election.

Tinubu was in Ekiti in the company of 14 APC governors for the grand finale political rally,  for the governorship candidate of the party in the June 18 poll, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji.

Also in attendance were Governors Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano, Dapo Abiodun of Ogun, Gboyega Oyetola of Osun, Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna,  Abdurasaq Abdurahman of Kwara and Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe.

Others are Governors Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi, Solomon Lalong of Plateau, Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa, Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa, Babagaba Zulum of Borno State, and Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos.

In his submission, Governors    Akeredolu, Sanwo-Olu, and Bagudu described Oyebanji as the best man to continue with the purposeful leadership laid by Governor Kayode Fayemi.

Bagudu, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, said: “The Progressive Governors’ Forum knows that Ekiti will do us proud on Saturday by overwhelmingly voting for APC, banking on the solid foundation Governor  Fayemi has provided.

“Biodun Oyebanji is the only one that can continue the good work Fayemi has begun. He will not disappoint you. The South-West has a big task ahead of 2023 and holding the zone strongly for Asiwaju to be able to win the 2023 presidential election will be to the benefit of all of us.”

Presenting the flag to the candidate, the National Chairman of the Party, Senator Adamu expressed optimism that Oyebanji will be elected as the next governor to succeed Fayemi, who he said had done wonderfully well in the last four years.

He said: “Since the nomination of my brother and your father, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as our presidential candidate, this is our first outing. We want to see you come out and vote for this humble and service-inclined young man.

“I have been to Ekiti on three occasions, but I have never seen this kind of crowd. I have never seen a crowd like this and this is an indication of the support you have for APC.

We saw the votes you gave APC in 2018 and you have to replicate it and even do more on Saturday.” On his part, former Osun State Governor, Chief Akande said: “Please, whoever we have offended should forgive us in the interest of our party and all of us. APC is a party that we can trust. Yoruba and Ekiti, in particular, belong to the progressive and we must display it in this election.”
