Sen. Babafemi Ojudu says his choice as the All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship candidate for the Ekiti governorship election, will fast-track the defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
“By the grace of God, my candidature will not only drive PDP away, we will ensure that we defeat the incumbent and his nominee,’’ he said.
Ojudu said his decision to run for the gubernatorial race was not by accident but a result of wide consultations with respectable men and women, including opinion leaders in the state.
He said it was his plan to use the position of a governor, if elected, to take Ekiti to where it was supposed to be.
“I am going into the governorship race as a call to serve and not to acquire wealth. God has been so kind to me in all my ways and I think the best way to appreciate God is to serve my people with all my vigour.
“My mission is simple but critical to the growth and development of Ekiti, and that is to make Ekiti work for all as well as taking back its pride.
“It is my plan to take the jobless off the streets, re-focuse the civil servants who are the engine room of government.
