An Ex Governor of Ekiti State, Segun Oni has thrown his hat in the ring in the race for Dr. Kayode Fayemi’s successor in 2022.
Oni, an aspirant under the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that he is motivated by the burning desire to bring positive change to the state.
“This is largely about deploying the resources of Ekiti State to develop the land and its people. This is not about personal enrichment or personalising governance for a few cronies,” he said in Ado Ekiti.
He appointed a former member of the House of Representatives, Yemi Arokodare, Director General of his campaign team.
Oni said ahead of the campaign, he was making efforts to unite party members and wiping out divisive tendencies.
He said: “The PDP family is an inclusive political community with a level playing field for all party members; we will leave no one behind because the party is big enough to accommodate diverse interests, groups and everyone.
“This developmental journey is not about us, our friends or associates; it is about the people who have shown tremendous confidence in our ability to turn the state’s fortunes around and guarantee Ekiti a secured future.
