ACN Chieftain Commends Tinubu, Progressives Over Ekiti Verdict


A chieftain of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in Lagos State, Chief Ayo  Akande, has commended the leader of the party, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, and other  progressives in the country over the party’s recent victory in Ekiti State.

He said this  while reacting to the Court of Appeal verdict which pronounced Dr.  Kayode Fayemi as winner of the 2007 governorship election in Ekiti State.

Akande said the feat recorded by the party was due to the dogged spirit of the  former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Tinubu and other progressives who were  opposed to oppression, and flagrant reversion of the democratic will of the  electorate.

“The Ekiti success is a collective effort of all those who believe in the success of  Nigeria through a democratic process. These are people who fight consistently to  correct the ills of the society,” he noted.

The ACN chieftain pointed out that Tinubu was the arrowhead and  moving spirit of  the progressives, some of who were not members of the ACN. “They all fought a  long-standing legal battle to see that justice and the will of the people prevailed  in Ekiti State as demonstrated in the Court of Appeal judgment in Ilorin, Kwara  State, which brought Governor  Kayode Fayemi to power,” he said.

He noted that Asiwaju Tinubu is playing the leadership role in the South West and  fitting conveniently into the shoes left behind by the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo.

“The exemplary leadership role exhibited by Tinubu is propelled by his sense of  maturity, courage and patience  which characterized the life of Chief Obafemi  Awolowo.

“I have no doubt in my mind that the moment ACN captures all the six South West  states which include Edo, Tinubu would comfortably assume the role of Chief  Awolowo,” he said.
