Scores of supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday trooped out to the streets of Ado-Ekiti to celebrate the return of President Muhammadu Buhari to the country after his 105 medical vacations in London.
The party members which included artisans and commercial motorcyclists marched from the Oke Iyinmi to the APC secretariat chanting various songs
The placard-carrying coalition created a traffic gridlock on the Ado Ekiti -Akure road as well as at Ijigbo and Ajilosun areas of the state capital.
Addressing the rally, the APC Acting Chairman in the state, Mrs Kemi Olaleye, said many residents of the state and supporters of her party were happy over the president’s return.
“His return will rekindle the war against corruption and insurgency while boosting efforts to end economic recession,’’ she said.
Olaleye also assured APC supporters in the state that the forthcoming party primaries in the state in preparations for the 2018 governorship poll would not be manipulated.
She said the party’s candidate would emerge through the unanimous vote of party members.
“We are solidly behind President Buhari even beyond 2019,’’ she said.
