Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has vowed to work to ensure the victory of President Goodluck Jonathan in the February 14 Presidential Election.
He spoke in Emure Ekiti at the flag-off of the campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party’s House of Assembly and National Assembly candidates in Ekiti South senatorial district, comprising Gbonyin, Emure and Ekiti East Local Governments.
Fayose, who spoke at the palace of Elemure of Emure Ekiti, Oba Emmanuel Adebayo, described the president as a humble person, who is not intoxicated by the powers of his office.
He said, “What I believe in my life is absolute loyalty and that is my own philosophy about politics. It is either I am for you or I am against you.
“President Goodluck Jonathan supported me when I was contesting and this is a payback time. We have to support him because it was God that brought him into power.
“Apart from the fact that President Jonathan has done his best for Nigeria, presidency is a very powerful position that needed a humble personality like Jonathan to superintend over. So Ekiti must stand up for Jonathan and I want to assure you, he will not forget you”.
The governor also pleaded with all aggrieved PDP aspirants to bury the hatchet and work together for the good of the party.
“When I was in opposition, I defeated an incumbent governor in all the 16 local government areas. I know it is going to be an easy ride now that we are in government.
“By the grace of God and the support of the people, I won’t lose any slot in the State House of Assembly and National Assembly elections”, he boasted.
