- The Ekiti governor listed conditions how the opposition can take back its inheritance from the ruling party
The Ekiti state Governor Ayo Fayose has disclosed how Peoples Democratic Party can reaclaim the power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governor was speaking at an interdenominational thanksgiving service to celebrate the validation of Udom Emmanuel’s election as governor of Akwa Ibom state.
Fayose accompanied by five other PDP governors said that the opposition will take back its inheritance from the ruling party.
According to him, the current generation of PDP will make a difference.
Governor Fayose said: ''If we put our house together, if we stay together, if we put the past behind us, we will take back our inheritance, it is our inheritance taken by deception, taken by propaganda, taken by hidden agenda.
“I want to felicitate, I want to rejoice, I want to stand up and say congratulations to my brother the young dynamic, energetic governor of Akwa Ibom state, Mr Udom Emmanuel. Congratulations! You don’t need anyone to tell you or tell us that you are loved, and this is the home of PDP.
“We are in the both together, we will stand by you, we will win together with you, all of us in this generation of PDP will make a difference, it is a time to reflect and after the reflection we are going to take our inheritance back. When I got into this premises and I saw this crowd, I don’t know how they could have explained, I don’t know what the situation would have been in this state if it had gone otherwise, but in every situation we have to bless the living God that it did not go the other way, because the power of the people is greater than those of us in power. For whatever we do, the people come first.
“The Lord will bless the people of Akwa Ibom, the Lord will be with you, on behalf of my other governors, I say congratulations.”
The Governor of Akwa Ibom state Emmanuel Udom has held a thanksgiving service for the court's judgement which held that he was validly elected as governor of the state.
The Supreme Court in judgment said Governor Emmanuel and his Abia counterpart, Ikpeazu, having won the lawfully cast votes, are duly elected as governors of their states.
