The former SSG to Governor Kayode Fayemi while speaking in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, he said agitations will not divide Ekiti, noting that the south is free to agitate for governorship, other interested aspirants from other zones can vie for the seat, with the party ensuring a level playing field for the right candidate to emerge at the primary.

Oyebanji said his campaign will be issue-based bearing in mind the promises made by all aspirants that they will be civil and democratic in their approaches.

“I respect the views and opinions of these aspirants as respectable sons of Ekiti. They are making a legitimate right As much as they have the right to agitate, I should also be allowed to exercise my fundamental rights. Nothing stops me from expressing my own aspiration as a free-born and citizen of this state.

Let me say this, these agitations will never divide us. We are united in spirit and soul. If God gives me victory, I will bring everybody together, it is in unity that we can stand and progress,” he said.

He highlighten “What we need in our governor are good character, competence, compassion and commitment.

“To the glory of God, I see myself as an embodiment of these qualities. My words are my bond, I am a loyal party man and I have always been loyal to all my bosses.

“In terms of quality service delivery, I think I stand out. Go and check my records as a Special Assistant, Special Adviser, Commissioner and SSG, they were outstanding. I have given my best to Ekiti,” he said.

“I don’t want to be distracted by direct primary noise. Either direct or indirect, I am at home. I am a grassroots person. I understand the terrain. It is not even within the purview of any aspirant to determine the modality of the primary, only the national can dictate that,” he said.

“I am always at home because I am a homeboy and I have street appeal and it comes to me naturally”
