Ekiti 2022: Why I’m contesting for governor – Sen Bamidele
A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Senator Michael Opeyemi Bamidele, has disclosed that his intention to run is because God has anointed him to turn around the fortune of the state through developmental programmes and policies.
Bamidele made this known during the continuation of his campaign tour of local governments in the state on Monday, 27th December 2021.
While addressing the party faithful in Moba, Ilejemeje, Oye and Ikole local governments, Sen. Bamidele explained that he understands the feelings of the common man on the streets of Ekiti State.
He said that if the party fails to get it well in its January 22 primary, there is no way the party will win the governorship election on June 18, 2022.
“I am here to appeal for your votes, am telling you that the anointing of God is upon me that will turn the state around in which elders, men, women, youths and children will experience dividends of democracy.
”I have seen a lot in life, I understand what the common man feels on the streets because I have been in that condition before,” he said.
He insisted that Governor Kayode Fayemi has not endorsed anybody because he will not do anything that will pull down the party in Ekiti.
Bamidele said, ”If they are deceiving you, don’t deceive yourself. Governor Kayode Fayemi has not endorsed anybody, I have the right to drop Governor Fayemi’s name because I have been his friend for 40 years, but I don’t want to tarnish his good name because it will look as if he wants to impose on the people of Ekiti state, I am here to appeal for your votes during the party’s primary in January.”
Speaking about his empowerment programme in the state, “I have been buying cars for people since 2001, there is no local government in Ekiti state that I have not bought a car for anybody, with what I have achieved in life, God has done well for me the only thing I am pursuing in life is the kingdom of God. Because of my experience in life, I have touched many lives in Ekiti land and I promise to do more when I become the Governor of the State in 2022.”
