The forthcoming July 14 governorship poll in Ekiti State has taken an interesting dimension as many beneficiaries of the Federal Government N-power scheme in Ekiti on Saturday campaigned for the Deputy Governor Olusola Kolapo Eleka ahead of the election.
The governor had a few months ago promised many of the N-Power beneficiaries in the state permanent jobs and they anxiously expect fullfilment of it.
Npower beneficiaries displayed placards with inscriptions such as: ” ‘Fayose leads, we follow,‘Olusola Eleka for governor, 2018’, ‘Support continuity agenda and ‘Fayose leads, we follow’, among others.
The whole drama began as early as 8:30 am on Saturday when beneficiaries of the N-power who are over 3,000 in number gathered in front of the Ekiti State Teaching Hospital along Adebayo Road, for Pro-Fayose rallies.
Fayose has promised them a permanent job and they firmly believe the governor that if Olusola should win the election, they would be offered employment because Fayose has been a promise keeper.
The beneficiaries marched from the front of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital in Adebayo area of Ado Ekiti to the AB event centre in the area where accreditation exercise for the state’s N-power beneficiaries took place.
