Former Governor of Ekiti State Olusegun Oni has called on his supporters to work for the success of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Kayode Fayemi, in the July 14 gubernatorial election.
Oni, who came second in the primaries, stated this while addressing his campaign council chairmen and team members from the 16 local government areas of the state.
He said: “If you are really loyal to Chief Segun Oni and believe in my principles, we must keep this party alive and work together as one by remaining committed and dedicated to its success in the July 14 election.
“We remain in APC. We are to work for the party and it has a candidate in the person of Dr Kayode Fayemi. We have a duty to help the Nigerian political process to further evolve.
“The idea of aspirants jumping ship after primaries must be discouraged. If we won, we would have expected others to remain and work with us.”
