Ekiti 2018: Faparusi reveals what will make APC lose guber poll

All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship aspirant and former member of the House of Representatives, Bamidele Faparusi, has warned that if the Party fails transparency test in its May 5, governorship primary, it will lose the July 14 poll in Ekiti State.

Against that background, Faparusi lauded the position canvassed by the party’s national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu that President Muhammadu Buhari and the Southwest zonal leadership won’t back any of the aspirants in the Party’s primaries.

Speaking yesterday in Ado-Ekiti, while addressing some Party delegates, Faparusi said he supported the plan by the South-West zonal leaders of the APC to witness the election as observers.

The governorship aspirant said this would make the primary to be transparent and credible in view of the fear that the election could be skewed in favour of a more advantaged aspirant.

Faparusi insisted that the party has no reason to fail in the coming election, owing to what he described as the lackluster performance of Governor Ayodele Fayose and his inability to pay salaries of workers.

“Just like I have been saying and others, there are no two ways to this thing, APC primary must be transparent, else, the party will lose the coming election.

“We must deemphasize this phantom federal might thing. You can only be privileged to deploy federal might when the right candidate emerges.

“I have been in politics for some time and I know there is no power that can override the collective will of the people.

“President Muhammadu Buhari was able to conquer the power of the presidency in 2015 presidential race because of his electrifying popularity across Nigeria,” he said.
