It was fanfare in Ado Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State as Hon. Olufemi Bamisile formally declared his intention to seek the nomination of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to contest the 2022 governorship election in Ekiti.

The publicity secretary of APC in the State,  Mr. Segun Dipe, while welcoming the aspirant said the party would provide a level playing ground for all the aspirants in the party. Noting that the eight contestants that have so far signified intentions for the post are capable to govern the State. He added that even the weakest of the aspirants from APC is stronger than any other contestant from other parties.

While making his declaration, Bamisile said his aspiration for the exalted position was borne out of his deep conviction that he can do more for the State. “I have no doubt that the depth of my concern and commitment towards the growth and development of Ekiti State will ultimately translate into economic prosperity for the well-being of the citizens and residents of the state,” said Bafem.

Speaking further, the aspirant,  who is currently, a member of the House of Representatives,  representing Ekiti South Senatorial 2,  said his intention to contest was also borne out of the need to offer the State the needed visionary, purposeful, competent, and exemplary leadership that will take the State to higher ground and greater height.

Stressing that the underlining reason for the agitation for the creation of the State that recently marked its 25th anniversary of creation was to fast track the economic growth and development which he knows still remains the yearnings of all concerned Ekiti people, which according to him, has made them to take stock, reflect on the past and review the journey into the future.

Bamisile said he believes that despite the moderate growth and development the State has recorded, the State equally needs to do more to transform Ekiti into the economic realities that the State desired, and that this, has inspired him to always strive not only to be part of the efforts to make Ekiti great but to lead and spearhead the onerous task of transforming the State into a more sustainable and prosperous one.

To achieve this feat, Bamisile said, he has put in place a set of cardinal programmes that will be the guiding agenda of the Government under his leadership. Part of these laudable programmes are leadership and good governance, “while I will ensure an all-inclusive government, I will at the same time stand on a foundation of good governance principles and take full responsibility to continually do what is best to transform our State into a society where hope will replace despair, prosperity replacing poverty, peace and progress in place of insecurity” he maintained.

Other remarkable agenda he said his government would pursue, is to make Ekiti State less dependent on fiscal revenue from the federation account by developing a sustainable economic base, built on the development of our natural endowments, development of human resources which ultimately will transform into the development of knowledge economy which has been initiated by the present administration.

The occasion was graced by prominent dignitaries from Omuo Ekiti, Lagos, and other prominent supporters from Ekiti State.
