Wife of Ekiti state Governor, Mrs Bisi Fayemi, has predicted landslide victory for her husband, Dr Kayode Fayemi, in the June 21 governorship election in the state.
She said his husband was running on track records of solid achievements unlike the candidates of other parties who had nothing to show the people apart from promises.

Addressing a crowd of party supporters in Iye Ekiti, Ilejemeje local government area during a market-centre campaign rally, Mrs Fayemi said the consistent campaign around the state “does not in any way suggest” that her husband and the state chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) were jittery or afraid of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Mr Ayodele Fayose, and that of the Labour Party (LP), Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele.

She said: “I am 100 percent sure that my husband will defeat other candidates in this election. He will win hands down because he is running on solid track records.
“Our consistent canvass for votes is not that we are jittery but to ensure that no voter is left behind. We have to sensitise our people and increase the advocacy for voters’ education to prevent apathy.

“We have gone round all the farmsteads and this is for us to be familiar with the challenges being faced in those communities. This will form part of the strategies to tackle social and economic problems at the grassroots during the second term of this administration.”
“Members of opposition are threatening that they will bombard the state with soldiers, police and other security agencies to scare the people from voting. This is a blatant lie and you have to discountenance such.”
The APC Woman Leader in the state, Mrs Funke Owoseeni, assured that women would benefit more if Fayemi was re-elected to steer the ship of Ekiti for second term.
