Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is ready for the Minister of Solid Minerals, Dr Kayode Fayemi and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the July 14 governorship election in the state.
The governor made this known in an interactive session with primary school teachers in Ado-ekiti on Friday.
Fayose, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, said Fayemi lost in 158 out of 177 wards and in all local governments last time, adding that he would record a more woeful result this time around.
“I thank you for your support and the feats recorded in the sector are because you are working hard and supporting our administration. You are the reason why we are doing well. You stood against the Philistines on June 21, 2014 and we defeated them in all the 16 local government areas.
“Let Fayemi come and contest and test his popularity. It is him we need. He is now advising Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State to sack teachers and saying that they must be tested and sacked.
“He is saying that the test is in the right direction. We have not changed the teachers and we have moved to number one in NECO, WAEC examinations. We won’t sack teachers in this state, you all know that you would have been sacked had Fayemi won the poll brought me back,” he said.
