APC Names Powerful 77-member Gang To Defeat PDP In Ekiti Governorship Poll

BEVERLY HILLS, May 24, (THEWILL) – The All Progressives Party, APC has announced a powerful 77-member campaign body led by the Governor of Kebbi State, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu as it launches an intimidating bid to win the Ekiti State Governorship.

The 77-member team it christened ‘National Campaign Council’ is “to ensure victory for the Party’s

governorship candidate, Dr. Kayode Fayemi at the July 14 Ekiti Governorship Election,” the party said in a statement Thursday announcing the body.

The main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is the ruling party in the southwestern state.

The campaign council which was inaugurated by the APC Deputy National Chairman (North), Sen. Lawali Shuaibu on behalf of the National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun consists of fourteen serving governors, ministers, some members of the Party’s National Working Committee, National Assembly members and senior Party leaders.

Speaking during the inauguration, Sen. Lawali Shuaibu while stressing the importance of the Ekiti governorship election to the Party, urged the campaign council to shun hate speech in its campaign message to the people of Ekiti.

“The election in Ekiti is very important for the APC. Infact, we feel the level of importance of the election is slightly below the importance of the presidential election to us. We are not going to relent in our effort to win Ekiti State. The responsibility now rest on your shoulders,” he said.

THEWILL can report that Ekiti is one of the swing states in the southwest. Both the PDP and the ACN, the progressive party which fused with other parties to form the APC in 2015 have governed the state.
