The Senator representing Ekiti Central Senatorial District, Senator Fatima Raji Rasaki, has declared that she dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) to rescue Ekiti State with other progressives.
Senator Fatima Raji Rasaki in a statement signed and made available to newsmen described PDP as a party where aspirations can no longer be met.
According to Senator Raji Rasaki, “Ekiti today is subjected to a state of political anomie by a monster who has muscled and monopolised reasonable avenues of expressing descent view and opinion which could have placed PDP in the state within the admirable view of the people who are languishing ajd being daily tormented by incelement policies from Gov Fayose’s stable.,”
“Party or no party, I am an Ekiti person, I love my people and my people loves me. I don’t want to incure the cusre of those who have ensured my being a sucessful and relevant political fellow to stay behind, while they are leaving in their drove and multitute, deserting PDP as a party. I am driven to join APC in Ekiti State, not because of lucre or otherwise, or for the politics of the desire to satisfy personal ego but by responding to my inner stimuli to join hands with othet progressives elements at rescuing our dearest states from the gridlock of the vampire.” She said.
Senator Fatima Raji Rasaki added, “it will be unwise on my part to indulge in the act of commiting a grevious political suicide if I allow my selfish and personal consideration to becloud my sense of service by waiting behind in PDP in Ekiti State, which has been programmed under oath to continue in the Fayose Eleka evil continuity for total impoverishment of my people.”
While urging the people of Ekiti state to support the APC candidate for the July 14 governorship election, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, Senator Fatima Raji Rasaki lauded Dr Fayemi for. “summoning the courage like Moses in the Bible to rise up and lead in this mission of chasing away the pharaoh.”
“I am appealing to the people who are still clinching to the pillar of bad governance in the state to steer clear of Fayose -Eleka continuity of evil and climb the liberation podium of Dr. Kayode Fayemi whom God has raised to disentangle Ekiti State from the shackles of Fayose’s political recklessness and rascality.
I am happy the masses of Ekiti have seen and realised the grand deceptive tactics of Fayose, and have resolved to say goodbye to Jatijati in Ekiti.”
