Mr Biodun Oyebanji, an All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant in Ekiti State, on Saturday promised to run an issues-based campaign for the 2022 gubernatorial election in the state.
He said in a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti that his campaign would be devoid of rancour and violence.
He stated also that if voted into office, he would sustain the legacies of incumbent Gov. Kayode Fayemi and promote prosperity for the benefit of all residents.
Oyebanji expressed confidence in the ability of the APC to provide a level playing for all aspirants to sell their ideas to the electorate prior to the primary election.
Oyebanji added that he would go round the 177 wards in the 16 local government areas and the 19 local council development areas of Ekiti to campaign to the people focusing on issues.
“I do not take your love and support for me for granted. My prayer is that the Good Lord will reward your labour of love and together, we shall, God willing, be able to contribute our quota in furthering the development of our dear State- the Land of Honour.
“No doubt, the journey has just begun. Our vision and mission are clear. The agenda is Sustaining the Legacy and Promoting Prosperity for all. Our campaign will be issue-based. It shall be devoid of rancour and violence. We have confidence in the ability of the party to provide an enabling environment for the exercise of our democratic rights.”
The former Secretary to Ekiti State Government expressed gratitude to party executives, leaders, members and admirers for their support after he took the party’s nomination in Abuja recently.
Oyebanji also wished party members who were involved in an accident during a rally to welcome him to the party’s secretariat in Ado-Ekiti after picking his nomination form, quick recovery.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Oyebanji resigned his appointment as Secretary to Ekiti State Government on Dec. 7, to contest the Ekiti governorship election and address issues germane to the people. (NAN)
