Ekiti Election: Ekiti In Diaspora Beg Segun Oni To Withdraw Suit Against Fayemi

A group, Ekiti Coalition for Change in the diaspora has appealed to former Governor Segun Oni to discontinue the suit filed by former Governor Segun Oni against the governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress(APC), Dr. Kayode Fayemi over his eligibility to partake in the May 12 primary of the party.

In a statement from Washington DC, the United States of America on Tuesday by the group’s Coordinator, Mr. Samuel Ayodele, appealed to Oni to play the role of an elder statesman and allow the matter not to degenerate to legal tussle that can deprive the party of victory.

Ayodele stated that the former governor was statesmanly and patriotic by working for Fayemi’s victory in the July 14 election, saying allowing the litigation to drag on may hang a toga of someone who was acting like a fifth columnist on the former governor.

The group said nothing would profit the former governor for him to act in a manner that can rock the boat, saying the litigation may distract Fayemi from the real governance when sworn-in as the validly elected governor on October 16, 2018.

“We want to appeal to former Governor Segun Oni to withdraw the suit, not only in the interest of the APC but in the overall interest of Ekiti people. We shouldn’t forget that issue of post-election litigation is a huge distraction that can deprive a leader of operating at a full throttle to develop the State.

“Ex-governor Oni was a victim of this in the past. In 2007 when he won the election, Fayemi contested his victory and this really constituted serious distraction that impeded the wheel of progress and development and we don’t want such scenario to continue
