The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the July 14 gubernatorial election in Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, said his administration would create a conducive atmosphere for private businesses to thrive in the state if elected.
Mr Fayemi, immediate past Minister of Mines and Steel Development, said this on Tuesday at a rally in Odo-Ayedun-Ekiti, in Ikole Local Government Area of the state.
The APC candidate, also a former governor of the state, said the hostile environment in the state led to the exit or collapse of many businesses.
He solicited the votes of the electorate in the July 14 governorship election to enable him revive the economy for the desired development in Ekiti.
“I will start by resuscitating the State Traffic Management Agency, Fire Service, Peace Corps and the Youths in Commercial Agriculture Development scheme.
“My government will create a conducive atmosphere for private businesses to thrive, thereby boosting job creation for the teeming youths of the state,” he promised.
The APC flag bearer called on party members and supporters to ensure that the party recorded landslide victory in the forthcoming election.
The Public Relations Officer, (PRO) of APC in Ward 8, Odo-Ayedun, Mr Sanni Bamisaye, assured Mr Fayemi that not only the ward, but the entire local government would vote massively for the party in the election.
He said his performance during his first tenure, which brought about physical infrastructural development, could be repeated if given the opportunity the rule the state again.
