WOLE BALOGUN, Ado Ekiti
The wife of Ekiti State governor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, has urged APC women in Ekiti State to continue to mobilise for the party ahead of the forthcoming general elections.
Erelu Fayemi made this remark while inaugurating the 122 canvassers for the re-election of Buhari/Osinbajo in Ado Ekiti
Erelu Fayemi told the canvassers that the re-election of Buhari/Osinbajo is a task that must be done.
She said all the women in Ekiti want to go to the next level of Buhari’s government where there will be more progress and development, and for these to be achieved they need to cast their votes en masse.
She said this of the canvassers. “You have all been chosen because your leaders believe that you are hardworking, you are dedicated, committed, and you are women of integrity. I trust your leaders, so I trust you.”
Explaining further, Erelu Fayemi said of the role of the canvassers: “They have between now and the first election, and then the second election. They know what they have to do, they are going to receive training; they are highly motivated; they are very committed, and we know that they are going to deliver. They will go round all our communities doing door-to-door activities, encouraging people to come out and vote en masse. They are also going to train our elderly people on how to vote properly to avoid the high rate of voided votes.”
The wife of the governor assured the people that the present administration has their welfare at heart and called on them to reciprocate the gesture by voting for APC at every level of the elections in the state.
Earlier in her own submission, the Director- General, Women Directorate for Buhari/Osinbajo campaign organisation, Mrs Omotunde Fajuyi said the women were carefully selected with a view to sensitising the people on how to vote properly, go door-to-door, and visit the nooks and crannies of the state to address their fellow women, folks.
Some of the canvassers and women at the forum described the inauguration as laudable. They promised to do their best in the task ahead.
