President Jonathan's Ekiti visit postponed

The one-day campaign visit of President Goodluck Jonathan to Ekiti State scheduled for April 8 has been postponed .

President Jonathan was scheduled to inaugurate the campaign of Ayo Fayose, the PDP gubernatorial candidate.

Dipo Anisulowo, Director-General of Ayo Fayose Campaign team, and Kola Oluwole, State Publicity Secretary of PDP, made this known at a news conference on Sunday.

The two men attributed the postponement to the refusal of the Ekiti State government to approve the Ado-Ekiti Stadium to be used for the campaign.

They said the leadership of the state PDP had written a letter of request to the APC-led state government, intimating him of tne visit .

They claimed, however, that government reply, dated April 2, with Reference No SS2 Vol. IV/08 and signed by P.O Dada, indicated the refusal of the state to allow use of the stadium.

They said, “The Ekiti State Stadium belongs to the Ekiti people and not APC, the public utility is being funded with Ekiti people’s money, it is, therefore, surprising that the people of Ekiti, who are members of the opposition party are being denied the use of the public utilities."

The development was said to have been communicated to the President. A new date for the visit would be given later.
