A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti state, Senator Michael Opeyemi Bamidele has disclosed that his intention to run the race is because God has anointed him to turn around the fortune of Ekiti State for good through developmental programmes and policies.
Bamidele made this known during the continuation of his campaign tour of local governments in Ekiti state on Monday, 27th December, 2021.
While addressing the Party faithfuls in Moba, Ilejemeje, Oye and Ikole local governments, Sen. Bamidele explained that he understands the feelings of the common man on the streets of Ekiti State.
He said that if the party fails to get it well in January 22 party’s primary, there is no way the party will win governorship election in June 18, 2022.
According to him, I am here to appeal for your votes, am telling you that the anointing of God is upon me that will turn the state around in which elders, men, women, youths and children will experience dividends of democracy.
I have seen a lot in life , I understand what the common man feels on the streets because I have been in that condition before.”
He insisted that Governor Kayode Fayemi has not endorsed anybody because he will not do anything that will pull down the party in Ekiti state.
Bamidele said, ” if they are deceiving you, don’t deceive yourself . Governor Kayode Fayemi has not endorsed anybody , I have right to drop Governor Fayemi’s name because I have been his friend for 40 years, but I don’t want to tarnish his good name because it will look as if he wants to impose on the people of Ekiti state, I am here to appeal for your votes during the party’s primary in January.”
Speaking about his empowerment programme in the state, “I have been buying cars for people since 2001, there is no local government in Ekiti state that I have not bought car for anybody, with what I have achieved in life , God has done well for me the only thing I am pursuing in life is the kingdom of God. Because of my experience in life, I have touched many lives in Ekiti land and I promise to do more when i become the Governor of the State in 2022.”
