Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose, has said he and his party are ready for the governorship election in the state anytime it is called.
Fayose who spoke at the weekend in Ado-Ekiti when representatives of the beneficiary communities came to collect cheques for development grants, said a good product is not difficult to market and expressed confidence in the ability of his party and whoever is its candidate to win even in a snap election.
According to the governorâ€™s Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, in a press release on Saturday in Ado-Ekiti, â€Žthe grants were given to the communities by the Ekiti State Community and Social Development Agency (EKSDA).
Fayose emphaised the need for continuity in government, noting that it was not about party, but the person who is on the driverâ€™s seat.
â€œWe are working and we will keep working for you. We will work until the last day. There must be progression and progressive growth in our state. A party may be good, but the driver being bad. It is not about party, but continuity of the good works we are doing. We are going to evolve a blueprint for the development of each community in our state.
â€œSince we are sincerely serving our people and our people â€Žare supporting us, we are prepared for the governorship election even if it holds today. A good product is not difficult to market and sell. Some people, who were comparing themselves and dropping the name of international figures came and failed.
Leaders must humble themselves and give the people the right of way. Our people need a leader they can lean on his shoulders,â€ he said.
Fayose assured the people that gradually, all the communities in the state would benefit from the grants.
