- The 2023 election is still a few years away but Governor Fayemi has advised youths to start working towards it
- The Ekiti governor said instead of worrying and complaining, those not in support of the APC can unite and kick out the party in the coming election
- The APC chieftain also lent his voice to the current security challenges, saying there is a need for system overhaul and restructuring
Anyone who is not happy with the current administration under the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is free to kick the party out in 2023, according to Kayode Fayemi, the governor of Ekiti state.
He had a word of advice for the youths, saying they should come together against the ruling party if they are not satisfied with the way they are governing the nation, Premium Times reports.

Fayemi said instead of agonising about the state of the country, the Nigerian youth should work towards changing the regime in a democracy if that is what they are after.
The governor who is an APC chieftain made this speech on Saturday, May 1, while speaking at the ‘The Platform’, an annual programme organised by Covenant Christian Centre at Iganmu, Lagos.
“Another election is going to come if you do not like what APC is doing. Organise, stop agonising, organise against the party. Link up with others who are organising and then kick the APC out of office and put people that you think will do better, not creating a situation of anarchy.”
Insecurity: Need for change of the strategy
In a report by Daily Trust, the governor said there is a need to change the strategy being used in fighting the war against terrorism.
Fayemi, who described the insecurity in the country as “frightening”, said the absence of the right military hardware has been a major setback in the fight.
The governor said the current security structure in Nigeria cannot deliver security or safety.
“This moment calls for sober reflection and system overhaul and restructuring."
Fayemi advises youths
In an earlier report by Legit.ng, the Ekiti governor urged youths not to allow challenges in the country to frustrate them. According to him, a better Nigeria is possible.
Fayemi told youths who are thinking of relocating to Canada and other countries to remain in Nigeria and realise their dreams.
He suggested that Nigerians who depart Nigeria country for countries abroad will eventually hit a glass ceiling.
