Fayose’s Anointed Successor Seeks Support of Aggrieved PDP Aspirants
Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Professor Kolapo Olusola has urged aggrieved governorship aspirants in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to focus their minds on how to ensure victory for the party in the 2018 governorship election rather than being bothered by his adoption as the governor’s preferred candidate.
Olusola who stated this in Ado-Ekiti said “Since my adoption is still subject to the conduct of primary election in accordance with the constitution of the PDP, there should be no cause for alarm.”
According to Guardian, the deputy governor declared that all members of the PDP in the state have rights to aspire to be the party’s flag-bearer, adding that his adoption has not excluded anyone.
He called on members of the party, especially the aspirants to desist from utterances that could paint the PDP in bad light, saying, “We should not turn quest for the PDP governorship ticket to an avenue for maligning one another because we remain one family.
“We should love one another and there should be no reason to fight ourselves. My adoption notwithstanding, others still have right to aspire and the good thing is that no one has been excluded from participating in the primary.
“Even from the word preferred, it means others are not excluded and imposition does not arise at all.”
