Fayose vows to go ahead with LG polls

16 November 2015, 07:45

Ado-Ekiti - Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State on Sunday vowed that no circumstances would make him shift grounds on his plans to hold local government elections in the state on December 19.

The governor made the declaration at a ceremony organised to mark his 55th birthday in Ado-Ekiti.

Fayose said that threats of boycott by any political party would not make him to jettison his plans to conduct the local government polls on that day.

He said that since no provision of the constitution invalidated the credibility of such an election, those calling for its cancellation had no justification for their position.

The governor urged those who were interested in the welfare and development of Ekiti State to join him in his plans to implement policies and programmes that were designed to make the state the envy of others.

Fayose pledged to use the rest of his life to work for the development of Ekiti State in a manner that would provoke other states to take a cue from the state’s development patterns.
