Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has directed the suspension of all open campaign of the PDP in the state for three days over the shooting of ex-APC governorship aspirant, Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele and others.
In a statement issued on Sunday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor called for three days of fasting and prayer for Bamidele and others that were struck by bullets fired by a trigger happy policeman at the APC secretariat on Friday.
Fayose said even though he was glad that Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele was responding to treatment, it was necessary that Ekiti people should support him and others with prayers.
He said: “Our doctors can only try; it is only God that heals. Therefore, it is important at this point for all of us in Ekiti to go to God in prayers so that He can heal our brother and friend, Opeyemi Bamidele and others who sustained injuries on Friday.
“At this point, it is immaterial the political party that he belongs to, what is important is the life of an Ekiti son and I pray that God will touch Opeyemi Bamidele with His healing hands.“Most importantly, Opeyemi Bamidele is a man that I have great respect for and since he has now been airlifted out of Ekiti for further treatment elsewhere, all we can do is to pray for him.”
