Ekiti 2018: APC won’t impose guber candidate – Oyegun


The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, has stated that the party will not impose any candidate in the forthcoming governorship election in Ekiti State.
The National Chairman, who dispelled the rumour of alleged plot to impose a particular candidate on the party, said the APC will conform to rules in respect of the selection of sellable candidate for the race.
“We have got your demands and we also want to tell you that we expect some things from you too while giving you assurances that there will be no imposition and that the primary shall be free, fair and credible.
“To all the aspirants, you must not campaign as if there won’t be tomorrow. Don’t campaign in a way that breeds enmity. I learnt that you are above 30, but the large number shouldn’t be a source of discord.
“Let me say this clearly, anybody who wants to fly the flag of our party must maintain decorum. But we shall be fair to you as much as possible because there can’t be peace when justice is denied. We must not also have bad losers; you must work with whoever the electors pick as their candidate.
“The aspirants must ensure that there is no division or factionalisation before and after the primary. We are also barring members of SWC from joining the bandwagon of campaign for any of the aspirants because this can cause further division”, he warned.
Oyegun said the choice of Ekiti to flag off mobilisation programme was strategic, saying this conveyed a vivid and strong message of love for the people of the State.
“I am happy with APC in Ekiti with the level of mobilization from our aspirants. You have shown that you are desirous to join the progressive fold. We didn’t choose Ekiti for the flag off of this programme by accident.
“We must know that Ekiti is facing one of the most important elections in our history. God has put the victory on our laps, he has put it in our hands and we must not lose it.
“We at the national headquarters have decided that this election is one that we will work hard, leave no stone unturned, because to us is a must –win election”, he stated.
