“Like a married woman who had tasted two different husbands, she will be in the best position to point out the best of the two. Ekiti people have tasted three different administrations and another chance is coming for them to pick one of them and I’m sure our people will prefer us.
“That is why I’m appealing to them to keep the hope alive, better days are around the corner for them. We did it before and we are ready to do it again and again. We are not out to boast or to make failed and empty promises like our neighbours.
“We are in the business of lightening up the entire state again like we did during our first coming, irrespective of your political party or religious affiliations. Once the election is over on June 18, and I become the elected governor of the state, the entire state will be united for good, all differences will become history, just watch out.
“Under my watch, Ekiti State will become a reference point for good governance in the country. I’m just appealing to our people to be patient and remain resolute. They should go search for their Permanent Voter’s Card, (PVC) for the day to cast their votes for us, the SDP and be watchful until the result is declared. They should leave the rest for God who is already there for our coming.”
Chief Oni commended the current leadership of the party.under the duo of Alhaji Shehu Musa Gabam, National Chairman and Dr Olu Agunloye , National Secretary, respectively, for growing the party to an enviable position, which is now a credible alternative for Nigerians.
