Wife of Ekiti State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP deputy governorship candidate, Dr. (Mrs) Folashade Ogunsakin has taken the ‘Continuity Campaign’ Agenda to her country home, Eriyinjiyan-Ekiti where she was warmly received by the monarch, chiefs and indigenes of the town.
Dr. Folashade who was accompanied to the town on Sunday by an array of female politicians, including PDP national officer, Mrs. Owoseni and Commissioner 3 at Ekiti State Civil Service Commission, Mrs. Aramide Oyedeji-Ojelade who is also from the town, said she took the campaign to her town because home will always remain home even as she solicited the total support of the people of the town.
She urged the people to come out enmasse and vote for the PDP in the forthcoming election, assuring the town of dividends of democracy if PDP is voted in.
Mrs. Ogunsakin said the good works of Dr. Ayodele Fayose must be allowed to continue so that the state could experience accelerated development.
Responding, the Olohan of Eriyinjiyan-Ekiti, Oba Omoseebi Adegoroye (Agunsoye 2) said he was happy to receive the wife of the deputy governorship candidate in his palace, saying the people of Erinjiyan-Ekiti will stand by their daughter.
Oba Adegoroye said the town should be remembered in the next administration in the state. He advised the party to do more in canvassing for votes in the people in every nook and cranny of the state so the party will record a beautiful success in the election.
In his remarks, the Provost of College of Health and Technology, Ijero-Ekiti, Pastor Bayo Ojo said, he has been having sleepless nights over the yet to be conducted election, promising total victory for PDP in every polling unit of the town.
“From 1960, indigenes of Eriyinjiyan-Ekiti have held many political positions but there has never been a time the town produced wife of the deputy governor and that is why we cannot afford to blow away this golden opportunity.
“The town did not benefit anything from APC’s government. The road in the town was tarred by Chief Ayodele Fayose”, Ojo remarked.
Prominent amongst the people who accompanied the wife of the former local government chairman to the town were PDP State Women Leader, Mrs.Yemisi Afolabi, Personal Assistant to Mrs. Feyisetan Fayose, Alhaja Dele Hassan, Mrs. Lanre Fajuyi, Mrs. Mayowa Alonge, Mrs. Ogundare Foluso Olayinka, Vice- Chairman of Ado Local Government, Mrs. Falilat Arije, PDP Women Leaders in Ado and Ekiti West.
