Akande noted that under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC at the national level, Nigeria has been able to weather the storm of many challenges and the party needs the support of Nigerians to consolidate on its achievements.
Akande dismissed fears about the gubernatorial election in Ekiti State, noting the the APC has done well enough to triumph at the poll.
“I was at the carnival-like rally of the APC in Ekiti on Tuesday. The turn out of party faithful and the enthusiasm they exhibited were demonstrative of the strength of the party in Ekiti State and indeed across the country.
“The presence of the presidential flag bearer and leader of the party, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu added great impetus to the readiness of members of the party in Ekiti State to once again deliver the state to the party.
“We as members of the APC are not in doubt that we shall emerge victorious in the Ekiti election”, he concluded.
