A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress(APC) in Ekiti State, Hon. Sola Fatoba, has said that the state would have witnessed an unprecedented development if the outgoing government in the state had sustained the Agricultural policies of the Governor-elect, Dr. Kayode Fayemi did in his first term.
He also said the state chapter of the party stands a good chance of winning all the 26 State and ninth National Assembly seats in Ekiti with free, fair and transparent primaries.
Fatoba, who is gunning for federal legislative seat to represent Ekiti Central Federal Constituency I, applauded the great exploits being made by President Muhammadu Buhari in rail transportation, saying this will help in boosting agriculture in the country.
The House of Representatives aspirant lauded Fayemi for investing heavily in Youth in Commercial Agriculture, where over 1,500 young graduates were attracted into farming, saying the gesture could have propelled the sector and make Ekiti attain food security status if the momentum has been sustained by Governor Ayodele Fayose’s government.
Speaking to newsmen in Ado Ekiti on his agenda for his constituents if elected during the 2019 elections, Fatoba pointed out that he expected the party to pay him back for his consistent loyalty since 1999.
On the primaries to elect candidates for the National and State Assembly elections in Ekiti APC, Fatoba said he was ready to back any candidate that emerged through the primary provided the process is free, fair and credible.
The aspirant, who has worked in agricultural firm for over two decades, added that Ekiti will benefit greatly from the rail system when the project is extended to the state as promised by the federal government.
He said he was banking on his past records and respect to APC to win the primary and the general elections.
