Segun Oni, who is an ex-Governor of Ekiti State, has disclosed yesterday that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has “tremendous’’ feelings of emerging winner for the upcoming governorship election that will be held on the 14th day of July 2018.
He made the pronouncement in Abuja while he was speaking with journalists at the All Progressives Congress National Headquarters after he picked the expression of interest form and nomination forms to contest for the election.
Oni, who resigned as the vice national chairman (South) of the party to contest in the election has expressed his confidence that APC will surely defeat Fayose’s PDP in the 2019 election.
“We have tremendous goodwill out there in Ekiti; the goodwill for this party is there, it is over-flowing and I can tell you that we will win the state.” Besides, he said that the “stomach infrastructure’’ programme of the current administration in the state was a farce and a “coinage to say something and probably arouse the people.’’
“Forget about stomach infrastructure; we are more than that,’’ he said, adding that his administration would give priority to agriculture and bring innovation to governance.
He canceled insinuations that he has been appointed the presidential candidate and the APC leadership, saying “I belong to the camp of God, not to anybody’s camp.
It is worthy of notice that it might be a difficult task for the APC party to defeat Fayose’s PDP in the state as the masses are to be obsessed with the man of the people.
Everybody loves him and he moves with people of the streets including traders, barbers among many.”
The governor who revealed that he is contesting for the presidential ticket of PDP ahead of the 2019 incoming elections paid a visit to the well-known barbing salon, opposite University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti, yesterday.
