Ekiti guber: UPN candidate steps down for Omoyeni
The Ekiti State governorship candidate of the Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN), Akinrogun Olufemi Adegboyega, said he has stepped down for the candidate of Mega Party of Nigeria (MPN), Mr. Bisi Omoyeni.
Adegboyega, who is from the same town with Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the candidate of All Progressives Congress, deferred to Mr. Omoyeni alongside his supporters across the state at his country home in Isan-Ekiti.He noted that if the state must progress the candidates of both the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) should not be elected, because both parties have been tested with leadership without any improvement in the well-being of the masses.
He said: “We can’t continue with same of the same. Both APC and PDP have been tested and failed. We have decided, as a party, to work with Mega Party and her candidate Omoyeni, who has a credential of turning things around to be elected the next governor.
“We have agreed that the governor will implement UPN’s programmes, as exemplified by Chief Obafemi Awolowo, when elected. We will work with him to win this election.” In his response, Omoyeni expressed gratitude to UPN’s leadership and members in Ekiti, especially Akinrogun Adegboyega and his deputy governorship candidate, who are ready to subsume their ambition for the state’s overall interest.
