Fayose and Olusola

With 1,190 votes secured in the primary election, Deputy governor of Ekiti state, Kolapo Olusola has won the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the July 14 governorship election.

Olusola, is the preferred aspirant of Governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose.

The exercise was peaceful all through.

Voting ended at 5:05pm and the committee chaired by Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta state, gave the aspirants the opportunity to comment about the poll before collation began.

Both aspirants expressed satisfaction with the exercise.

There was tension in the hall when the ballot papers were sorted in two different baskets and the difference between the two aspirants appeared insignificant.

As agents had their eyes fixed on the baskets, supporters moved from one end of the hall to the other.

Adeyeye polled 770 votes.

Reacting to his victory, Olusola thanked Fayose whom he described as his mentor.

He said the PDP would record another “16-0” in July election. Fayose won in all the local government areas of the state in 2014.

Following the violence which marred its primary on Saturday, the All Progressives Congress (APC) fixed another exercise for Friday.

Whoever emerges on Friday will face Olusola in the election.
