The Sunday Awoyomi Movement today hosted the leadership and representatives of various associations of artisans and trade groups across Ijero Local Government at Ekiti State, south-west of Nigeria.
The aim was to strategize on how to embark on a massive mobilization campaign and a victory for the All Progressive Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate, Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji (BAO) in the upcoming election on Saturday, June 18.
Addressing the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), Okada riders, Tailors, Hairdressers, Bricklayers, Photographers and other trade unions at Ijero, the convener Mr Sunday Awoyomi thanked them for the wonderful turnout and extolled the good work and laudable projects embarked upon by the current administration of Dr Kayode Fayemi in Ekiti state.
The convener appealed to them to work assiduously towards ensuring the success of APC gubernatorial candidate, Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji (BAO) whom he described as a thoroughbred and seasoned public servant who has undergone the tutelage of governance under a very great and high achiever, Governor Fayemi and therefore he (BAO) is in the best position to pilot the affairs of Ekiti state thus guaranteeing continuity of the wonderful effort of the JKF administration.
Other leaders present at the meeting equally enunciated the sterling qualities of BAO and solicited the support of the attendees as the June 18 governorship election is fast approaching.
Responding, leaders of the artisan groups expressed their appreciation of this very laudable gesture and assured the group of their support at the polls whilst promising to cascade the information to the generality of their members.
Also present at the meeting were the All Progressive Congress (APC) leaders and members from all the wards across and outside Ijero Local Government and some traditional rulers within the community.
