2022 Guber: PDP will reclaim Ekiti – Prof. Eleka
By Demola Atobaba, Ado-Ekiti
A former deputy governor and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in the 2018 election in Ekiti state, Prof. Kolapo Olusola Eleka, has said that his party will win the next governorship elections and that the All Progressive Congress, APC performed below expectations in delivering dividends of democracy since 2018, adding that Ekiti people will experience better governance under PDP.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC had fixed June 18, 2022 for the Ekiti state governorship election.
Eleka, in a reaction statement made available to Orient Daily through his aide, Mr Adebisi Adeola in Ado-Ekiti, admonished Ekiti sons and daughters who are yet to register for voters Identification Cards to endeavour to get their PVCs, saying that is the only tool they have to change the current government, which has impoverished them beyond imagination.
According to him, “Next year, Ekiti people will decide with their PVCs, whether or not to continue with the current spate of insecurity, dwindling economy, poor Infrastructure and stagnation in Human capital development in the state,” Adeola said.
While calling on PDP stakeholders to intensify their efforts in rebuilding the party for victory in 2022, Eleka said PDP stands a chance of winning the forthcoming election if the party comes out strongly after the primary election, slated to hold by January.
“We have brilliant products in the party who can win the election. The most important thing is for all stakeholders who are involved in decision making to put the party before their interests.
“The idea that ‘if it is not me or my candidate, the party should not forge ahead’ must be condemned.
“The divine ambition of Professor Eleka to return Ekiti state to her excellent position in Education, adequate and sustainable development and building a robust economy, and creating employment through Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET), is inevitable if given the opportunity by the party leaders to fly its ticket,” Eleka concluded.
