A group , Ekiti Professionals in Politics , has endorsed the aspiration of Opeyemi Bamidele to fly the flag of the All Progressives Congress in the July 14 governorship election.
The group in a statement on Sunday called on the party delegates to give the former Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy their votes in the May 5 primary because “Bamidele is well prepared to lead the state into a glorious dawn. ”
The group in the statement signed by its coordinator , Segun Adewolu , said Ekiti would be greatly blessed if Bamidele was allowed to use his wealth of experience to steer the ship of the state .
The group reeled out the achievements of Bamidele as a two – time commissioner in Lagos State , saying he had the contacts and wealth of experience needed to lead the state to envious height .
According to the group , Bamidele ’ s performance as a member of the House of Representatives also attested to the fact that he is the right candidate to occupy the exalted position of chief executive officer of the state .
The group also cautioned youths in the state not to use the election as opportunity to cause trouble , saying they should abide by the rules of the game .
It expressed concern that nothing had been done in the recent past by the state government to empower the youths . This , the group noted , had made them easily available for politicians to use as tools to cause trouble during election.
