Buhari was at the All Progressives Congress (APC) rally which held in Ekiti state on Tuesday, July 10, 2018.
The rally was organised to rally support for the APC guber candidate in the July 14, 2018 Ekiti governorship election, Kayode Fayemi.
“I am happy to be here in Ekiti State, and among the good people of Ekiti. Ekiti State people are dear to me. My earliest interactions with people of this State dates back several decades ago, and I have always found them to be very intelligent and honourable people. For those of us with a background in the military, we have come to know officers and men of Ekiti origin to be of exemplary courage, discipline and integrity. Today, alongside indigenes of other States, many officers and men of Ekiti origin continue to follow in the footsteps of their forebears, under the command of the current Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin from Ode-Ekiti.Outside of the military, over the years, many of your leading lights, especially in the academia, have distinguished Ekiti indigenes in the comity of states in our federation. My coming here today is not only to campaign, but make clear the reason why Ekiti people must embrace the Change Agenda and vote for APC.”
Meanwhile, Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state has promised to match the All Progressives Congress (APC) ‘bumper to bumper’ in the upcoming governorship election.
