Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has commended the Governor of Oyo State, Mr Seyi Makinde, for his positive disposition over the People’s Democractic Party (PDP) governorship primary election in Ekiti State.

Fayose, who also thanked all members and supporters of the PDP in Ekiti State, especially the aspirants for the peaceful manner the primary election was conducted, said, “All PDP members, supporters and the entire people of Ekiti who are yearning for good governance are winners.”

In a statement by his Spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, the former governor said that Makinde has proved to be a man of his words and deserved to be appreciated.

His words: “By ensuring a level playing ground before and during the primary election, Governor Makinde has further earned my respect.

“With the first huddle scaled, I urge the governor not to relent in supporting us to win Ekiti State for the PDP so that after June 18, his position as the only governor in the Southwest will be further strengthened because he will no longer be standing alone.”

He also saluted the former governor, Segun Oni, for his exemplary display of the spirit of sportsmanship.

Fayose said that whatever happened before and during the primary should be allowed to slide as no group could win the election alone.

“Going forward, all stakeholders should be rest assured of their rightful place in the new arrangement,” Fayose said.
