Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has called on his supporters across the State to be on Stand-by for his directive on what platform to use in retaining power in the next political dispensation.
Mr. Fayose stated this while addressing members of the Peoples Democratic Party who had gathered for the monthly Ado LG PDP meeting hosted by Ward 11 at Isato Area of Ado-Ekiti on Thursday.
The directive which is coming at a time the crisis rocking the PDP isn’t showing any sign of abetting is an indication that the governor is not ready to be caught unawares as the Makarfi faction of his party awaits judgment on the PDP leadership tussle at the Supreme Court.
Addressing the elated crowd during the unscheduled visit at Isato, governor Fayose said: “as far as Ekiti 2018 election is concerned, be on stand-by, the new slogan now is ‘e stand-by’, when you see the market women and they say 2018…you say ‘e stand-by’, when you see the teachers and they say 2018…you say ‘e stand-by’, when you see a friend and he says 2018, tell him “e stand-by”.
“When it is time, I will give you direction, for now, the slogan is ‘e stand-by’, the governor stressed.
With the governor on the visit were the commissioner for environment, Honourable Bisi Kolawole and the deputy speaker, Ekiti State House of Assembly, Hon. Segun Adewumi.
