The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has inaugurated Ekiti State Governorship Campaign Council chaired by Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa-Ibom of Akwa Ibom State.

PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, inaugurated the committee on Monday in Abuja at the PDP National Secretariat.

He said that the caliber of members showed the importance the party attached to the election.

“Ekiti State means so much to our party because of the strategic position it occupies in that geopolitical region.

“It also mean much to us based on the fact that it is a test run election ahead of Osun state governorship election in September and the general elections in less than one year from now.”

Mr Secondus said the PDP hopes to win the polls given the achievements of Governor Ayodele Fayose in the last three years.

He claimed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) plans to “capture Ekiti at all cost”.

“Let me warn that if there is any attempt to thwart the will of the people in Ekiti State, there may be no general elections and the entire democratic process will be in endangered.”

He urged the campaign council members to “harness the aspirations of Ekiti people and ensure that their will prevail.”

Mr Emmanuel said the committee would do its best to ensure that PDP wins the election.

He said that with the quality of the people in the council, there was no room for failure.

“We promise that we will make sacrifices to give it our best.”

“I also believe that PDP governors have do so much in terms of delivering dividends of democracy to the people and critical infrastructure in the last three years.

“If the APC believe they have done for their people in the last three years let us call ourselves out and compare notes. Let us know the crop of the governors that delivered more.”

The PDP Chairman, South West, Eddy Olafeso, said that the party was sensitising registered voters in the state to collect their Permanent Voter Cards.
