The Former Ekiti State Governor, Segun Oni, on Sunday explained why he was vying for the state governorship election.
In his New Year message to the people of the state, Oni said he planned to rebuild the state and serve the people positively.
Oni assured the people of Ekiti that he was well prepared to make personal sacrifices the way he did in his first term to reposition the state with its lean resources.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain ruled the state from May 29, 2007, to October 14, 2010.
He rejoined the PDP from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in June 2020.
Ekiti State will hold its governorship election on June 18.
He said: “My dear inestimable people of Ekiti State, I wish you a happy and healthy New Year full of fulfilled aspirations, dreams, and renewals.
“This is always a hopeful time, as we celebrate the beginning of 2022. I urge you to fear not, trust in God and believe that help is on the way to Rebuild Back Better and Rediscover the Ekiti Dream.
“While 2021 was difficult for many of us, we must look forward in the New Year with the knowledge that brighter days are ahead of us.
” I am confident we will come back, and we are going to come back even better and stronger than before.
“Your clarion call to me to return in the service of the state has met my preparedness to serve you again and even better. But we must come together, keep together and work together to get things done. I do not doubt that we will do better when we work together”.
“We will partner you to rediscover the Ekiti Dream, where we shall collectively build a prosperous land, seek the forgotten, and leave no one behind.
