One of the governorship aspirants in Ekiti State under the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr. Kola Alabi has said that he is not worried nor disturbed by the adoption of Ekiti State Deputy governor, Prof. Kolapo Olusola-Eleka as PDP sole candidate for July 14th, 2018 Ekiti governorship election.
Kola Alabi popularly known as KA hails from Ikere Ekiti, the same local government with Kolapo Olusola
Alabi stated this when he visited Ward leaders and delegates in Ikere Local Government Area.
“I am neither disturbed nor rattled by his adoption if given my party’s ticket for the election. This election is going to be the strength of strength and antecedents for antecedents”.
“Ikere electorate will vote based on what the two of us have been able to do in the past for the people. I have made my impacts felt in scholarship awards even before now. I have intervened in paying the town’s electricity bill when disconnected by BEDC. I purchased a transformer for Afao quarters and also contributed in every Ikere Day”.
All these will form the people’s opinions to decide who to vote for between me and Prof Olusola.
“They talked of the ongoing dualization in Ikere, well it is a good project but it is also our right. Governor Fayose did not do it with his personal money but with the state’s fund.
“So, the question to ask Prof. Olusola is that, what has he done in his personal capacity to contribute to this town? This is the only way he can get our votes”, he said.
Alabi said the party can only win the 2018 governorship elections if the primary is transparent and if zoning is embraced.
“What is fair is fair. The North Senatorial District had produced former governors, Chief Segun Oni and Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
The Central produced Otunba Niyi Adebayo and Chief Ayodele Fayose, so the time for the South to have its own share of the governorship seat in 2018 if truly we are all Ekitis”.
