Ekiti State indigenes in Lagos under the aegis of the Ekiti State Development Union (ESDU), have urged indigenes of the State to give their total support to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose in the June 21 election, describing him as the "architect of modern Ekiti, who knows what it takes to give Ekiti State the developments it desires."

ESDU, which said it has mandated its members to move to the respective Wards, to mobilise support for the PDP candidate, added that "Ekiti will go bankrupt if it is ruled for another four years by the Governor Kayode Fayemi led All Progressives Congress (APC) government.

According to a release issued in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday, and signed by ESDU Chairman, Pastor Yemi Olayinka and Secretary, Mr Foluso Oguntoyinbo, the group said it was undeniable the fact that Ekiti State witnessed more infrastructural developments during the three and half years of Fayose as governor.

"No one can deny the fact that it was Fayose that turned Ado-Ekiti to the modern capital city that it is today. All the dualised roads in Ado-Ekiti, except Old Garrage - Ojumose and Atikankan - Baptist Church were done by Fayose administration.

"Interestingly, the same people who wagged war against Fayose, throwing Ekiti into instability are the ones in government now, and Ekiti people can see how they have almost run the State aground with incessant borrowings.

"They are the ones insulting our graduates with N10,000 per month jobs and calling it employments creation when they can never pray that their own children should get N10,000 jobs?

"They are the ones spending borrowed funds on non-income generating projects like new government house, civic centre and state pavilion, plunging the State into huge debt.

"Therefore , it is our duty to rescue our State from these pillagers, whose only interest is their pockets and not the betterment of the lives of the downtrodden people of Ekiti. Our best bet is the PDP, and we are giving our total support to the party and Fayose, its candidate."
