Professional group in Ekiti State under the aegis of Tiwa N’ Tiwa Unity Forum and an affiliate of Osoko Mass Movement (OMM), has lauded the series of achievements recorded by Gov. Ayodele Fayose in the past two years, assuring the people that only the continuity in the achievements of the governor can surely sustain development in the state.
The group said her support for the Fayose led administration and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state remains unflinching, adding that her members have not defected to any mega party and those using the slogan of the group in the mega party were warned to desist from such act.
This was contained in a statement jointly issued by the State Coordinator and Publicity Secretary of the group, Mr Charles Olusola and Comrade Adedayo Adeleke respectively over the weekend in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.
Olusola, who applauded the giant strides of the Mr Governor, said the group cannot but appreciate the fact that Gov. Fayose has brought about series of developmental changes in the state, adding that only those who play politics of calumny with everything the governor does will not give credence to his leadership style.
“Ayodele Fayose that we all know remains our person and our man, meaning (Tiwa N’ Tiwa) in Yoruba paraphrase. We have waited so long to have someone of his spirit and courage. He remains the brain behind every face lifting transformation the state had recorded so far.
“As a group, the sole interest of this state matters to us and that had formed the basis why we have been working hand in hand with the sociopolitical group called Osoko Mass Movement (OMM) in promulgating the achievements of our indefatigable and ebullient leader par excellence, Gov. Ayodele Fayose.
“We are of the opinion that the good work of the Mr governor should continue beyond 2018 and that can only be possible when we all come together as a people to support and encourage him to do more, both for us in Ekiti and Nigeria at large.
“Ekiti as a developing state cannot afford to take ten steps forward and twenty steps backward all in the name of change; the change which has not only failed hopeless Nigerians at the national level since inception but had sometimes in the immediate past government of Dr Kayode Fayemi mortgaged the future of this state with unprecedented indebtedness,” Olusola said.
The group promised to continue encouraging Governor Fayose to do more in Ekiti, saying returning to the days of wicked competency test, unlawful downgrading of both primary and secondary school teachers, daily retrenchment and the likes is what the state cannot afford at this crucial time. Hence, her support for the governor remains E-stanby.
“E-Stanby is the slang. Wherever Gov. Fayose goes, we shall follow as far as Ekiti development is concerned. We should ensure the sustainability of the series of achievements recorded under this Fayose-led administration,” Olusola advised Ekiti people.
