Bisi Kolawole Wins Ekiti PDP Governorship Primary Election

Kolawole had resigned as chairman of the Ekiti PDP in order to run for governor. Former governor of the state Ayodele Fayose chose him as his chosen candidate.

While announcing the results of the primary election, Emmanuel Udom, the chairman of the primary election commission and the governor of Akwa Ibom, claimed Kolawole received 671 votes to defeat his nearest challenger, Segun Oni, a former governor of the state, who received 330 votes.

Earlier on Wednesday, the senator representing Ekiti south, Biodun Olujimi pulled out of the party’s primary election.

Olujimi alleged that she was disenfranchised by the party.

In an interview with reporters, she said: “I came to drop my letter that I was pulling out of the process.

“What happened was that 14 local governments — four of them from my senatorial district — were given to a group of the party and the remaining two, where congresses should have held, nothing held.

“So today, the party asked me to use automatic delegates; 12 from my local government and 10 from Gbonyin local government, making 22 out of the 156 that I should have — and I feel disenfranchised.”
