Fayemi Cannot Afford Sorrogates In EKHA - Akogun
A lot has been said and read about the different characters coming out to contest for various positions under the two major political parties in Nigeria but the one that interests me here now is the Ekiti State House of Assembly and the APC as a party.
If there is any major thing which the Governor-Elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi is expected to do differently, it is the emergence of responsible men and women in the forthcoming House of Assembly because what is now being witnessed in the State is nothing to write home about.
With Dr Fayemi’s pedigree, people believe that gone are the days of touts and irresponsible men and women in the House of Assembly. Therefore, inexperienced and immature men and ladies should have no place in the next Assembly. Another very crucial thing is that political pundits have observed that former Governor Segun Oni’s group is frantically moving round the State to install its surrogates in the various constituencies. As members of the same political parties, there is nothing bad in people having ambition but when it becomes an inordinate one, it should be condemned.
Before the governorship primary election, all the aspirants entered into an agreement that whosoever won would be rallied round but since Dr Fayemi emerged as the winner at the general election, Engr Oni and his group, Atunse Ekiti has been moving up and down with the motive of snatching the mandate from Dr Fayemi.
This has equally propelled Oni’s group to be sponsoring its members into the various State and National Assembly positions with the motive of giving the Governor-elect, Dr Fayemi problems after his swearing-in.
All hands must therefore be put on deck to ensure that trusted hands, men and women with versed experience in the management of men should be allowed to obtain the nomination form of the party.
