Chief Paul Alabi, a former deputy governor of Ekiti State, has solicited the support of Ekiti people, regardless of their political parties to support the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji, in the June 18 governorship election.

Oyebanji and other APC leaders, visited Chief Alabi, at his Ijesa-Isu Ekiti country home, saying having worked closely with Oyebanji, in the past and had taken time to follow his career trajectory over the years, he could vouch for him as a committed Ekitiman, who would take the state to the next level.

“In the spirit of the ‘thank you visit’ I want to commend members of APC for pushing forward a candidate that we can all rely on as a purposeful leader. I have known Biodun Oyebanji, for over 20 years and can confidently say that he is one of our best. He combines many things; quality education, good upbringing and youthfulness. To me, he
is a bridge between the old and the young ones and he understands what it takes to govern Ekiti,”

Earlier, the leader of the team and Chairman, Ekiti State Local Government Service Commission, Chief Alaba Bejide, has described Chief Alabi as a committed Ekiti leader who do not believe in the state but has taken conscious effort to contribute his quota and develop the state.

“Beyond the fact that Chief Paul Alabi had served as deputy governor of our great state, it is on record that he is one of few Ekiti leaders who have made conscious efforts to grow the state economy through agric business. Today, Chief Alabi, is one of the biggest investors in the Agricultural sector and he is an employer of labour,”

Oyebanji, while commending Chief Alabi, for his support for him and Ekiti people in general, said he considered himself lucky to have learnt under the feet of a disciplined leader like the elder statesman.

“Chief Alabi is not only a former boss to me but a father-figure who had used his wealth of experience to lift many of us intellectually and in the art of leadership. We came here today to appreciate him for his support and if by God’s grace I emerge as governor of Ekiti State, no doubt the fact that he will still remain our mentor,” Oyebanji stated.
