The consensus candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti local government for the forthcoming council election scheduled for November 18, 2017 in Kwara State, Comrade Yinka Dallas, has urged his contenders to join hands with him in sailing the ship of the council if he emerged victorious.
Dallas who spoke with Pilot Politics on Sunday night in Ilorin declared that there was no loser in the contest that saw him emerged the consensus candidate ahead of Amos Sayo and Reuben Dada on Thursday at the part’s primaries.
He said there was no winner or loser in the race and he is ready to work with his co-co-contestants to make the council a better place than he met it.
The coordinator of Kwara South Stakeholders Forum said Ekiti local government council is bigger than everybody and we cannot leave it in the hand of one man if only we want to achieve success at the end of the day.
“I don’t believe the victory is for me but for everyone who desires progress for our council, no victor, no vanquish. We need to work as one family in the interest and development of Ekiti local government.
This is not about Dallas but Ekiti local government which is bigger than all of us and
I see no reason anyone should be aggrieved when we are both fighting for a common cause that has to do with its progress”, he added.
He said he remained loyal to all the leaders and elders of the council and will continue to call on them and carry them along in matters of interest in the local government.
He said the party in the local government will unite as one strong force to ensure that it delivered all the contested seats during the poll.
Meanwhile, it was gathered that Dallas has already set-up a reconciliation committee to reconcile all the aggrieved parties in the contest.
A party chieftain in the council, Engr. Joseph Adebayo who spoke to this medium yesterday night over the development stressed that Dallas has set up a reconciliation committee that will reconcile members of the party who were not comfortable with his emergence.
