Ekiti 2022 : Will It Just Be Another Political Battle Between APC And PDP Only?

The people of Ekiti State will be going out to cast their votes for their preferred candidates next year.

Recall that the electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed the 18th of June, 2022 as the date for the election.

Many residents of the agrarian state are anxiously waiting for the day on which they will elect their new leader, who will lead the state for the next four years

Ekiti State, like every other state in the country, has different political parties. Many of the aspirants of the different political parties have pasting campaign posters across the state.

But many residents of the state believe that most of the political parties in the state only contest elections but don't have the financial and human resources to win elections.

Since the beginning of this present democratic dispensation, only the All Progressive Congress and the People's Democratic Party have been winning elections in the state.

The All Progressive Congress which was formed before the 2015 election was formally known as the Alliance for Democracy and later, the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN). 

The two political parties that later changed to APC have ruled the state during the administration of former Governor Niyi Adebayo and the first term tenure of John Kayode Fayemi.

History might likely repeat itself as one of the two main political parties may emerge victorious in the forthcoming election.

Most of the other political parties seem not to be financially buoyant to fund their political campaigns and rallies.

Also, the other political parties in the state do not have large followers and supporters like the APC and PDP that can mobilize people to vote for them.

All things being equal, the contest will be another strong battle between the ruling All Progressive Congress and the People's Democratic Party
