Erelu Bisi Fayemi, wife of Ekiti State Governor has urged Ekiti people to vote en-masse for President Mohammadu Buhari in next week’s presidential election in order to save the state from needless sufferings.

The road show moved through Itapa, Oye, Ilupeju, Ikole, Ode and Omuo Ekiti.
Fayemi said all the federal government projects in the state, including the rail line and the ongoing federal secretariat, federal housing estate would become reality once President Buhari gets re-elected.
“Since your governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi came on board, he had established good relationship with the federal government and we have started seeing the gains.

At the various points, Fayemi and her team took time to sensitise the elderly citizens on voting procedures with sample of the ballot papers.

It had been noticed that using of the thumb cause a lot of voided votes because of the smearing that occur with its use,” she advised.
