“What we are distributing today is about N3.5 million worth, which is from my personal purse to take care of my people. These goods and food items worths a sum of N2.5m with a cash gift of about a million naira.”

Ruing the persistent kidnapping and killing of people in the constituency in recent time, the parliamentarian stressed the need for the people to partner government and security agencies to tackle the menace.

Aribasoye showered eulogies on the roles being played by local hunters in the constituency, who had relentlessly been working in concert with security agencies to arrest cases of abduction in the state constituency.

“If you have observed of recent, you will realise that we had recorded various sordid scenarios of people being kidnapped and made to pay ransoms before being let off the hook.

“These pathetic incidences had been witnessed at Iyemero, Itapaji, Ipao, Oke Ako and even along Ayedun-Omuo road.

“As much as I appreciate the laudable roles being played by our traditional rulers, who had organised local hunters into a formidable force to work with security agencies to mitigate these unwarranted attacks, I want us to reinforce this partnership , so that we can permanently tame these rampaging kidnappers who are terrorising us on daily basis.”

Speaking about the coming APC gubernatorial primary and the June 18 governorship poll, Aribasoye appealed to the people to keep faith with Fayemi and the ruling APC.

The lawmaker solicited support for the aspiration of the immediate past Secretary to the State Government, Hon. Biodun Oyebanji, for the actualisation of his governorship ambition.

“You all know that Hon Biodun Oyebanji has been going round canvassing support for his governorship ambition. I want you to support him in the interest of all of us.

“The continuity agenda of Governor Kayode Fayemi is crucial to the sustenance of democracy dividends to our people. You all know how well governor Fayemi has done in road construction, empowerment to women and youth, Agriculture revolution, regular payment of salaries and pensions, tourism development among others.

” If you want this to continue, give the APC ticket to Hon Oyebanji and also vote for him on June 18,2022.

“Among all the aspirants that we parade , he is the most experienced, trustworthy, humble and accessible. He can be trusted with power and someone like him coming on board will automatically up the game for the radical turnaround of Ekiti economy, politics and progress in all spheres.”
