PDP elders endorse Fayose’s deputy as candidate
The Peoples Democratic Party’s Elders Caucus in Ekiti State has endorsed the adoption of Deputy Governor Kolapo Olusola by Governor Ayo Fayose as the preferred candidate of the party for the 2018 governorship election.
The elders, led by a former deputy governor in the state, Paul Alabi, endorsed Olusola during a visit to the governor in Ado-Ekiti on Friday.
Describing the endorsement of Olusola as a fulfilment of their desire and request for a South Senatorial candidate from the governor a year ago, Alabi said, “We are glad that the governor has endorsed Prof. Olusola to be the next governor and we also support his stand that this does not foreclose the chances of other aspirants to contest and be part of the forthcoming primaries.
“There is no doubt that Olusola has been endorsed to continue the good governance. We urge Governor Fayose to bring together aggrieved members so that the 2018 election will be won by the PDP.
“We support and align fully with the endorsement and have written a letter of congratulations to Olusola on this development."
