Chairman of the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, has promised to do everything possible to ensure the unity of the All Progressives Congress, APC members in Ekiti State through meaningful reconciliation that would make the party win the June 18 governorship election.

This was even as the lawmaker representing Ekiti Central Senatorial District, said he would never take the decision of the leadership of APC in the state to return him back to the upper legislative chamber through an unopposed party ticket for granted.

Speaking after he was screened by the APC Senatorial Screening Panel at the weekend in Abuja, the senator informed that his next assignment is go to the state for vigorous campaign to ensure the victory of the party.

He said: “Going back home, we have an immediate assignment, which is to go and campaign thoroughly and vigorously to ensure the victory of our party in the June 18 governorship election in Ekiti and I believe that is the next assignment I am looking forward to and I will put in my best in this regard by the grace of God.”

Bamidele, who is also the chairman of Southern Senators Forum, according to a statement issued by his media office, commended the Screening Committee for proper organisation and conduct of the screening process.

On his unopposed party ticket, he said: “I do not take it for granted that I am being returned unopposed as the flag-bearer of our party in the 2023 Ekiti Central Senatorial election.

“It means so much to me, I am grateful to the leadership of APC in Ekiti State and grateful to the leadership of the party at the national level. I am also grateful to the people of Ekiti Central Senatorial District for this honor. I don’t take it for granted ar all. That no one is running against me in this race for the ticket of the party is an endorsement of my humble efforts in ensuring effective representation in the Senate in the last three years.

“It is also an acknowledgment by the leadership of the party and members of the party that I could be entrusted with the position of an elected representative of the people and one of the leaders of our people in this tough time.

“It is not that we don’t have equally qualified people or eligible people who can obtain the form. But the fact that this has not happened and the leadership of the party has done so much to ensure that I am given a smooth ride to be the candidate of the party, is, to me a sincere and profound effort and from whom to whom much is given, much is also expected.

“It is a call to further and greater duty. I will do everything possible to ensure the unity of the party through meaningful reconciliation where it is still necessary to do so and to ensure to drive a process in which there will be integrity and mutual trust.”
