Kamarudeen Ogundele, Ado Ekiti
A former Ekiti State Governor and governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, Kayode Fayemi, has said he is not bothered about the conspiracy of some aspirants against him.
Fayemi said as a true democrat and leader, he has a large heart to accommodate everybody and hoped that the party would emerge stronger after the primary.
Fayemi spoke with our correspondent on the sideline of the ongoing governorship primary holding at Damlek Event Centre, Ado Ekiti.
He said, “It is a competition; people devise all sorts of means when they are in a competition. What is important is that after the exercise whoever emerges winner will be the candidate of the party and to my expectation, all of us will embrace whoever that person is.”
The Minister of Mines and Steel Development said the exercise was better than that of last week but that it would be too early to give a verdict until after the primary.
“It is a much better arrangement today, it is orderly, the instructions are clear, there is no rowdiness in any part of the exercise.
“The committee has done an incredibly good job and the security is also tight. People who have no business are not allowed in. In all these, so far so good. But we can’t reach a conclusion until after the whole exercise.”
