A chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Oyetunji Ojo, has declared that outcome of June 21 governorship election in the state was just a temporary set back for the party.
Ojo who represents Ekiti Central Federal Constituency on Sunday told newsmen after commissioning some projects he initiated for the people of Ekiti West, Ijero, and Efon local government areas that make up his constituency, that the party would soon bounce back.
The Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Communications urged those who thought the defeat was the end of the party to be prepared for a big surprise in 2015 elections.
He described as fake, recent claims by some chieftains of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state that scores of APC members had been defecting to their party in droves.
The Federal lawmaker who is married to the first daughter of the APC national leader, Senator Bola Tinubu said contrary to such claims, APC in the state was still intact.
He urged all members of APC across the state not to be bothered by the development, saying efforts should be geared towards winning all other elective offices such as Senatorial, House of Representatives as well as House of Assembly seats in the next year’s general election in the state.
