Young and vibrant politician, Hon.Ojo Femi Owodunni aka Omoifaki has just been elected Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Deputy Chairman in Ido/Osi Local Government of Ekiti State.
The whole town of Ifaki-Ekiti, his hometown went agog immediately the news broke. Femi has been a PDP faithful since he joined the party.
A strong member of former Governor Fayose’s new media group, Omo Ifaki as he’s fondly called took a shot into politics many years ago when he was a reporter with Ekiti Metropolix, the first community tabloid in Ekiti.
In a phone conversation with Metropolix Online just after the announcement, Femi said; ” it’s a well deserved honour, a worthy appointment for me especially when my leader, Engineer Segun Oni the former Governor of Ekiti State has come back to PDP. I vow to work hand in hand with the Chairman and all the party executives both in the local government and state level and do everything within my capacity to work for the success of the party in order to revamp it.”
He didn’t stop at that as he also talked about the present administration of Governor Fayemi’s Allr Progressive Party (APC) in the State; “It’s a pity that Ekiti State has entered ‘one chance’ if I should borrow that popular street language.”
” Right from day 1, I knew nothing good will come out of Fayemi’s administration, if you look keenly, the major projects being enjoyed by the indigenes today are executed by PDP administration’s in Ekiti. We know the number of projects commissioned during Segun Oni’s administration and many others by Fayose. Our sitting Governor is a product of failed Change, the slogan adopted by APC to deceive Nigeians this is what is happening in Ekiti with the toothless bulldog we call a Governor.”
Femi also said that his priority now is to ensure his party, PDP become more powerful in Ido/Osi and Ekiti in general in order to wrestle power from the hand of APC come 2022
However, his resumption will take effect after the state Congress which will hold on Saturday.
