He admitted having a blood tie with the governor, but emphasized that his conscience could not be reconciled with “the directionless situation facing the state.” ,adding, “how can I ignore the pains that unpaid wages have brought on our people?”.
“If we want a better society, we must not let our relationship allow us to hold us back from standing by what is right. My decision to dump PDP for ADP is borne out of my patriotism for Ekiti that works for everyone.
“Ekiti is in shambles and we must embrace the right ideas that can take us out from the current economic and social doldrums.Let me make something clear here, I think today is the first time I’m meeting him (Adewale) but I have heard a lot about his capacity and resolve to turn a hopeless situation into an endless opportunity. We need someone of his standing to bring to bear his experience and discipline to the resuscitation of our social and economic values.”
The new convert of Action Democratic Party (ADP) pledged his commitment to the success of Adewale’s aspiration in Afao-Ekiti and the state as a whole at the July 14 poll, vowing to resist any attempt to manipulate the votes of the people.
In his own part, Adewale, the governorship aspirant welcomed Fayose’s brother and his supporters to the Action Democratic Party( ADP), saying the party had become a movement being joined by Ekiti residents on daily basis, adding that the party would provide good governance, create jobs and attract investment to Ekiti to make it a model state in Nigeria.
