Ekiti Central PDP senatorial aspirants for primaries

Published by The Nation on Fri, 29 Aug 2014

No fewer than 12 senatorial aspirants are warming up for the Senate in Ekiti Central District.The seat is occupied by the veteran journalist, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, who was elected in 2011. Party sources said that the senator will re-contest.The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) aspirants include Senator Bode Ola, a defector from the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), former deputy governor Dr. Sikiru Lawal, former House of Representatives member Hon. Fatima Rasaki, Senator Femi Kila, former Ado Ekiti Council Chairman Hon. Taye Fasubaa, and Mr. Kayode Alufa from Ijero local government.The aspirants have informed the executive committee led by Mr. Makanjuola Ogundipe about their ambition. They have also approached the governor-elect, Mr. Ayo Fayose, for endorsement.A dependable source said that the governor-elect is backing Olas bid to return to the Senate. The senator won the 2007 senatorial poll. But, Kila was declared the winner by the electoral commission. After three years, his mandate was restored by the court.Fayose has told stakeholders in Ado-Ekiti that he would back a candidate from the state capital because the the positions of governor and deputy governor have eluded Ado. Senator Ojudu, Senator Ola, Dr. Lawal, Mrs. Rasaki and Fasubaa hail from Ado local government.In the Labour Party (LP), the only aspirant is the federal legislator, Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele. His associates said that he will unfold his plan, following consultations with stakeholders in the five local governments constituting the district. The councils are Ado, Ekiti West, Efon, Ijero and Irepodun/Ifelodun.]]>
