Fayemi’s ex-aide joins National Assembly race in Ekiti
Former Special Adviser to the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Makinde Araoye, has declared his intention to contest a seat in the House of Representatives on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In the letter of intention addressed to APC, the chartered accountant said his decision to join the race for the Ekiti South Federal Constituency 1 (comprising Ekiti South-West, Ikere and Ise/Orun councils) came after consultation with leaders and major stakeholders of the party in the state.
Araoye, who insisted that the constituency suffered poor representation in the last four years, said it was time for competent citizens with passion for development to unite and give the constituency purposeful representation.
Noting that governance had been adversely affected in the state in the last four years, Araoye said it was incumbent on all well-meaning citizens to rise up and be a part of the mission to restore the dignity and honour of the people.
While saluting the courage of the APC stakeholders as demonstrated in the recent governorship election won by Dr. Kayode Fayemi, he charged the party to ensure total victory in the 2019 general election, so that the in-coming APC administration could make maximum impact.
