Ekiti 2022 PDP Governorship Candidate: Three Aspirants That May Emerge

Ahead of the June 18, 2022 Governorship Election in Ekiti State, Politicians are bracing up to achieve their political goals. In the opposition People's Democratic Party (PDP) camp, there are Top Contenders to watch out, precisely those that may emerge as the party's Flagbearer in the forthcoming Election. They are 

Hon. Bisi Kolawole 

Currently the PDP Chairman in Ekiti State, Kolawole's Governorship Ambition has backing of the immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose who is a political warfare in the State. Not only has Fayose endorsed him, He personally led him Campaign. Another factor that may work in favour of Kolawole is that he has a vast experience in Politics.

The Efon Alaaye-born Aspirant has previously served as a Councillor, Local Government Chairman, House of Assembly Member and a State Commissioner. Thus, he is a leading Contender to watch out in the forthcoming PDP Governorship Primaries.

Chief Segun Oni 

For newcomers to the world of Ekiti State Politics, Oni was the Governor of Ekiti State between May 2007 and October 2010, he was edge out of office following a Court Ruling that nullified his Election. The Former APC National Deputy Chairman (South) returned to the PDP in 2020, Six years after he left the party to join the APC. One key factor that may favour Oni is that he has a large followership and equally a strong political structure across the nook and cranny of the State. 

Professor Kolapo Olusola Eleka 

Eleka who was the 2018 PDP Governorship Candidate was defeated by the Incumbent Governor Kayode Fayemi. He served as Deputy Governor in the State between 2014 and 2018. Even though his intention to have a second shot at the PDP Governorship Ticket is not in doubt, despite the absence of support from his former Boss, Ayodele Fayose, the Ikere-born Politician proceeded with his Aspiration.

However, He hails from Ekiti South Senatorial District, a Zone that has never ruled the State since the Advent of Democracy in 1999. Thus, this major factor may work in his favour. 

Who among the Trio do you think is best qualified for the Ekiti 2022 PDP Governorship Ticket?
