Sen. Babafemi Ojudu has said 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.
Ojudu, who is the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Political Matters, disclosed this on Friday at Ado-Ekiti at his declaration ceremony for the July 14 governorship poll.
“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.
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.
