The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday declared that its sweeping victory in the Ekiti State local council election is flevidence of its popularity not only in Ekiti State but also in the entire South-west and the nation at large.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement described the election as credible, free and fair, adding that “the landslide victory is a direct response by the people to the achievements of the Governor Ayo Fayose-led PDP government, in line with the ideology, vision and programmes of the party”
Stating that the southwest region has always been its stronghold, the PDP further said that it has repositioned to retake the governorship of all its original states, particularly those in the southwest and the northern parts of the country while ultimately winning the Presidency and the majority in the National Assembly, come 2019.
The party said Nigerians have since seen through the deception and incompetence of the APC and are now very eager to kick out the ruling party at all levels of government.
The PDP thanked the people of Ekiti state for their unrelenting support and charged the newly elected officials to reciprocate the gesture by working hard to ensure that the people continued to enjoy the dividends of democracy as already consolidated by Governor Fayose.
It congratulated Governor Ayo Fayose over the victory and urged its members across the nation to redouble their efforts in mobilizing for future elections, particularly, the 2019 general elections.
