Ekiti 2018: Nobody can rig APC primary election – Bamisile
Former Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Mr. Olufemi Bamisile, has assured that the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary will not be rigged in favour of any aspirant.
Bamisile, who is among the aspirants, spoke on Thursday while hosting delegates and party members from all the 16 local government areas to an Easter get-together at his residence in GRA, Ado-Ekiti.
The former Speaker said he is not afraid of other party bigwigs interested in the APC ticket including former governor Segun Oni, Senator Gbenga Aluko and former House of Representatives members, Bimbo Daramola, Bamidele Faparusi, Opeyemi Bamidele Kola Alabi, and others.
He promised to use his Octopus Agenda blueprint to bring about positive change to Ekiti State which he said has been bastardised by the Peoples Democratic Pary (PDP)-led government.
Bamisile said nobody can buy delegates at the primary noting that the shadow election represents an opportunity for the APC to regain the governorship seat lost in the 2014 election.
He said: “You and I will get to the Promised Land together; nobody can buy delegates at the primary because they are determined to elect the right candidate this time around.
“We are going to run the government together because it is somebody that works hard that reaps the fruit of his labour. I want to assure my supporters that nobody can rig the APC primary.
“Everybody will be taken care of in our administration, including the delegates and voters. We will use agriculture to turn around our economy and give financial empowerment to women and youths.”
