Former governor of Ekiti state Segun Oni is seeking a return to the government house as he has joined the 2018 governorship race.
Oni, who is the Deputy National Chairman (south) of the All Progressives Congress, is expected to make an open declaration in July.
The Director General of the Segun Oni Campaign, Ife Arowosoge, made this known on Thursday at a meeting involving APC leaders and members from all the 16 local government areas of the state.
He said the former governor had sent letters of his intent to the party’s executives at ward, local government and state levels.
According to him, Oni is joining the race based on ‘clarion calls’ from interest groups including teachers, civil servants, local government workers, retirees, youths and women.
This is the man we have chosen to work for. We are not ashamed to associate with this man of integrity and we must ensure that he wins both the primary and governorship election with a landslide.
The slogan of 16-0 against the APC must not only stop, it must be reversed. It will be 16-0 against the PDP.
The political atmosphere is most favourable for our party now and the only person people are demanding our party to give them is Chief Olusegun Oni.
