Former Speaker, Ekiti State House of Assembly, Femi Bamisile has expressed optimism that the All Progressives Congress will defeat Governor Ayodele Fayose in the 2018 gubernatorial elections that will be held in the state.

Bamisile who announced his intention to run for the governorship seat on the platform of the APC said the party will embark on grassroots mobilisation of the electorate.

Bamisile said this during a courtesy call by his campaign team on the APC’s State Working Committee.

He said “We are not going to rely on President Muhammadu Buhari or federal might to win the coming governorship election. We have the capacity to defeat Fayose on our own.

“In the June 21, 2014 governorship election, we lost to the PDP by a margin of over 80,000 votes. But in the presidential election, it reduced to about 50,000 despite that Fayose did not allow some of our members to campaign.

“With this, it was evident that the APC in Ekiti is very strong. I want to assure our leaders that we will win the next election convincingly. But we have to work seriously for it so that we won’t disappoint President Buhari.”

The State APC Chairman, Chief Jide Awe, represented by his deputy, Mrs Kemi Olajide assured Bamisile that there will be no imposition of candidates.
