Jonathan insists PDP will win Ekiti poll

09 June 2014, 15:13

Ado-Ekiti - President Goodluck Jonathan said on Saturday his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), would win the June 21 governorship election in Ekiti.

Jonathan spoke at the formal presentation of the party's flag to its governorship candidate in the state, Ayo Fayose, in Ado-Ekiti.

He said that his optimism was based on the tumultuous crowd that trooped out to welcome his entourage right from Akure Airport en route Ado-Ekiti.

Jonathan said that he was thrilled by the crowd, saying the party's candidate could not afford to lose the poll if such display of affection translated to votes.

Vice-President Namadi Sambo, Senate President David Mark, National Chairman of PDP, Adamu Muazu, and Chairman Board of Trustee of PDP, Tony Anenih, all echoed Jonathan’s optimism that the party would win the governorship poll.

The President had also visited top Ekiti traditional rulers, who converged on the palace of Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe, where he promised to transform the Akure-Ikere-Ado-Ekiti federal road into a dual carriage one.

The rally was also attended by PDP governors, National Assembly members, ministers as well as party chieftains across the country.
