Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele
  • Urges APC to learn from electoral loss

By Olakiitan Victor

A legal practitioner and member of the seventh House of Representatives, Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele, has urged the All Progressives Congress to learn a lesson from the colossal loss
suffered by the party during the June 2014 governorship poll in Ekiti State .

He stated that the main takeaway for all members of the party should be that there is need to build a strong internal democracy and foster unity among themselves, saying no individual could unilaterally win an election without the contributions of others.

Governor Ayodele Fayose had defeated the then incumbent, Dr Kayode Fayemi, in the poll, winning in all the 16 local government areas of the state.

Bamidele spoke in Iyin Ekiti at the weekend while addressing the party supporters during a reunification rally formalizing his return to APC with his teeming supporters where he was received by the Acting State Chairman of the party, Mrs Kemi Olaleye and the State Working Committee.
