“It is politically naive of anyone to think PDP will win Ekiti governorship election. The bitter truth here is that the PDP is enormously empty. it has lost contact with Ekiti people. Government scholarships and employments have become ‘once upon a time’. Do you expect any local contractor, Civil Servants, Students, Pensioners and even the PDP members who are groaning in poverty to hail the PDP-led government? Definitely not”, he said
Atofarati also hinted efforts of some notable personalities within the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) and the All Progressives Congress(APC) who have opened defection talks with Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance(APDA)
“The lies they sold to Ekiti people have back-fired and destroyed them. So, except those who are now only popular on the pages of the newspapers; they are no longer sellable, they have lost the grip, they no longer command respect of the electorates. Many of them, APC and PDP, are in talks with us but we will only absolve those with incorruptible track records in accordance with the constitution of our party’, he said.
‘It is regrettable that today, Ekiti people’s stomachs are now fully ‘Infrastructured’ all over the media while grave hunger is the people’s trademark in reality. APDA will take over the government in 2018’.he added.
The group however urged the National Executive Council (NEC) of the APDA under the Chairmanship of Mallam Mohammed Shittu Kabir to intensity further efforts in ensuring the holistic distribution of Data Capturing Machine to the sixteen Local Government Areas of Ekiti State to ease traffic at the State’s Registration Centres which according to it will consequently boost the membership drive of the party across the 171 political Wards of the state.
