The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Mr Ayo Fayose has hailed former governorship aspirant of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, for his show of total commitment to the success of the PDP in the June 21, 2014 election, saying; "Adeyeye's attitude is that of a statesman."

Fayose, who was addressing a mammoth crowd of PDP supporters at Ise-Ekiti on Friday, promised to do everything within his reach to make sure Adeyeye gets the ministerial slot for Ekiti State.

The governorship candidate, who had earlier visited the Arinjale of Ise-Ekiti in his palace, promised to be fair to all and build on his achievements in Ise-Ekiti when he was governor.

Also, in a show of appreciation to the people of Ajegunle community, Ise/Orun Local Government, Fayose promised to construct the 6km Ajegunle - Ise junction road within the first one year of his administration if elected.

He urged eligible voters that were yet to collect their Permanent Voters Cards to go to the Local Government INEC office to collect the cards, saying; "That is the only way you can all realise your dream of PDP wining the June 21 election."

Also speaking at the campaign rally, which took place in all the wards in Ise/Orun Local Government Adeyeye, said he decided to drop his personal ambition and support Fayose because of his love and commitment for the PDP.

He said; "Our detractors thought our party will disintegrate after the primary, but we have been able to prove them wrong. We have shamed them and you can all see Fayose and Adeyeye working together to ensure victory for our party.

"From what we are seeing here today, the present occupiers of the Ekiti State Government House must have seen that the game is up. Ise/Orun Local Government is totally for PDP and Fayose and the crowd here is a pointer to that."

Adeyeye, who also thanked PDP supporters for coming out in large numbers to welcome Fayose, added that; "the interest of our party and Ekiti people is paramount and we must not allow anything to divide us."

The campaign rally rounded off at about 8am at Kajola village, with thousands of PDP supporters carrying local lamps to receive the campaign trail.
