The Ekiti State Development (EDU) will on Friday, hold a fund raising dinner for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose.

The fund raising dinner tagged "Restoration 2014," will hold in Grandeur Event Centre, Oregun, Lagos.

According to a release issued by the Director of Media and Publicity, Ayo Fayose, Governor of Akwa-Ibom State, Dr Godswill Akapbio will be the chairman of the fund raising dinner, while Skye Bank Plc Chairman, Mr Olatunde Ayeni, Hon George Turnah and Chief Kenny Martins will be special guests of honour.

Aribisogan, who commended the EDU for organising the fund raising, said it was heart-warming that Ekiti State indigenes in Lagos are identifying with the governorship aspiration of Fayose.

Also speaking, one of the organisers, Pastor Yemi Olayinka, said the fund-raising was a moral boaster for the PDP candidate, and a way of saying; "we Ekiti indigenes in Lagos, under the auspices of Ekiti Development Union are behind Ayodele Fayose and the PDP."

He said whatever amount that is raised at the dinner will be handed over to the PDP candidate, adding that; "whatever that is donated will not be at any condition to Ekiti people.

"It won't be like, people are putting down their money so as to be given contracts or appointments. It is just a selfless service on our part so as to put Ekiti State on the path of development."
