Otunba Fasae who is the Director of welfare, Buhari /Osinbajo Campaign organization in Ekiti State and member of the Directorate of Contact /Mobilization of Women and Youth Team under the chairmanship of the wife of the President Her Excellency Mrs Aisha Buhari ,attributed the recent youth empowerment program for 10,000 Ekiti women and Youth by National Directorate of Employment NDE as a sign of good relationship governor Fayemi has with the center.
He noted that the state would soon commence School feeding program for the benefit of the people. He said “All APC programmes are centered on dividends of democracy benefitted by people irrespective of political affiliation.
The APC chieftain, who declared better days ahead of Ekiti, lauded and appreciated the wife of the governor, Erelu Bisi fayemi for the supportive roles, described the first lady as “a woman of substance, solidly behind her husband and at the same time carrying out different programs for the upliftment of women and children “
Fasae therefore appealed to Ekiti people to come out on the day of general election and vote enmasse for President Muhammad Buhari ,who he said is up to the task to take Nigeria to the next level in the comity of nations.
