Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, representing Ekiti Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, a Guest of Honour at a mobilization event of BAO’s Anchor Organization in support for the APC gubernatorial candidate, Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji, decalred his firm stand with the APC candidate.

The senator explained that his ‘loyalty to All Progressives Congress (APC) and confidence in the ability and capacity of Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji (BAO) to provide responsible governance were the reasons he didn’t challenge Oyebanji’s victory in the January 27 primary election’. Bamidele was also a governorship aspirant at the January 27 primary election of the APC.

Senator noted that though, he contested in the primary, he had to embrace reconciliation as a loyal party member and work in the interest of the party the moment the winner had emerged.

Senator Bamidele had highlighted: “I’m excited today because our party is waxing stronger every day. I’m here not only as Senatorial candidate but as a loyal party man who also believe in the competence and capacity of Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji to provide good governance in Ekiti State.

“Of course, after the primary in January, many people thought we would challenge it in court but I knew that was not the way to go. I told my supporters that it’s a family affair that must be treated within the family. I thank my brother, Governor John Kayode Fayemi, I thank the first lady and other leaders for the roles they played in making sure the family ties remain intact,”

Bamidele, on the June 18 governorship n election in Ekit, stated: “Today is memorable in the history of our great party and the state because what is happening is a demonstration of the fact that politics has indeed gone back to the people. I’m particularly excited because people have realized the need for participatory politics. I want to implore our people to move out and preach the gospel according to BAO for us to be victorious on June 18.”
