President Muhammadu Buhari has presented the party’s flag to Mr Abiodun Oyebanji, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Ekiti State gubernatorial election, scheduled for June 18, 2022.
A statement by Femi Adesina,
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said Buhari presented the flag at the State House, Abuja and wished Oyebanji best of luck.
“You have served Ekiti State in many capacities, including as Chief of Staff, Commissioner, and Secretary to the State Government. Being Governor will just be a continuity of service. I honestly wish you the best of luck,” Buhari told Oyebanji.
The candidate was led to the President by the National Chairman of the party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the National Secretary, Senator Iyiola Omisore, and Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State.
The National Chairman said APC was planning to win the contest, “by the grace of God,” adding that it was the reason the candidate was being presented for presidential blessings.
Governor Fayemi said Oyebanji had been involved in governance in Ekiti in the past 20 years, and has acquitted himself creditably.
