Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State on Sunday

vowed that no circumstances would make him shift

grounds on his plans to hold local government

elections in the state on December 19.

The governor made the declaration at a ceremony

organised to mark his 55th birthday in Ado-Ekiti.

Fayose said that threats of boycott by any political

party would not make him to jettison his plans to

conduct the local government polls on that day.

He said that since no provision of the constitution

invalidated the credibility of such an election, those

calling for its cancellation had no justification for

their position.

The governor urged those who were interested in

the welfare and development of Ekiti State to join

him in his plans to implement policies and

programmes that were designed to make the state

the envy of others.

Fayose pledged to use the rest of his life to work

for the development of Ekiti State in a manner that

would provoke other states to take a cue from the

state’s development patterns.
