Wole Balogun, Ado-Ekiti
Minister of Mines and Steel Development and governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has congratulated Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, for his emergence as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s flag bearer for the July 14, governorship election in the state.
Prof. Olusola, on Tuesday, emerged winner of the PDP governorship primary held in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
Fayemi, a former governor of the state, said the emergence of Prof. Olusola in an orderly and peaceful primary, was a welcome development.
He, however, said the APC would give the PDP flag bearer a good fight for the Oke Ayoba Government House come July 14th, adding, however, that the APC still remains the preferred choice for the generality of Ekiti people.
The Minister, according to a statement by his Media Office, said he is confident that whoever emerges as APC flag bearer in the party’s rescheduled primary on Friday, would be more acceptable to the Ekiti electorate.
