Governor Fayose of Ekiti State and his precedessor, Kayode Fayemi, on Saturday suprised many when they shake hands in public. The occassion was the 60th birthday of Segun Oni which held at the Methodist Church, Ifaki, Ekiti.
Both men, who sat together smiled as they exchanged pleasantries during the ceremony.
At the event, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, John Odigie-Oyegun, on Saturday alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party governments under former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, Musa Yar’ Adua, and President Jonathan expended over $28bn on power without achieving any result.
Odigie-Oyegun also said 2015 was God’s appointed time for the opposition party to take over from the PDP.
He and the Deputy National Chairman, South, Segun Oni, spoke during the event.
Oyegun, who restated that the PDP under President Goodluck Jonathan had brought untold hardship on Nigerians said despite spending $28bn, the government had failed to improve power supply.
He said, “APC is a party whose time has come. APC is a party with welfarist and people-oriented programmes.
“We won’t steal your money. Public money must be used for the benefit of the people. The level of corruption that exists today will cease when APC gains power.
“We would protect our citizens. The life of every Nigerian is worthy to preserve. Whatever that will take us to end insurgency, we are going to do it.
Oni thanked Governor Ayodele Fayose for restoring his privileges as a former governor of the state, describing him as a brother.
He debunked insinuations that there was political motive behind the gesture.
Buttressing the position canvassed by Oyegun, Oni said, “It is very clear anywhere in Niigeria that the APC is the government in waiting. The APC would win hands down. I believe this is the ordination of God.”
