Ekiti guber: Olujimi’sgroup gives condition to support PDP candidate

Ahead of the July governorship election in Ekiti State, the political group of Senator Biodun Olujimi has given the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, seven demands that it must meet before it would work for the victory of the party’s candidate, Professor Olubunmi Olusola.
Senator Olujimi, who is representing Ekiti South Senatorial District on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, was an aspirant before stepping down for Prince Dayo Adeyeye few hours to the primary election which was won by Olusola.
The demand by Olujimi’s group was contained in a letter to the PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, dated May 30.
The letter was signed by 31 members of the group from the local government areas of the state.
According to the letter, the demands are automatic senatorial district ticket for Senator Olujimi, sharing of all elective positions between the two groups on an agreed percentage basis, sharing of all appointment from the ward to state level, sharing of all federal appointments between the two groups.
Others demands are: an immediate stoppage of all forms of abuse on social media, a total overhaul and reconstitution of the governorship campaign team to allow for full representation of the two groups and an immediate reconciliation meeting between Senator Olujimi and Professor Olusola.
However, reacting, Olusola said; “Politics is about negotiation, accommodation and collaboration. There is nothing wrong in dialogue as the need may arise
“Our governor, Dr. Peter Ayodele Fayose, and myself have great respect for Senator Olujimi and other leaders of the party and we will do everything humanly possible to make sure that we all work together.
“Before now, the governor has mandated that we must reach out to anyone who might be aggrieved and have shown interest in reconciliation and we are already doing that. Even those who left the PDP before now, we are reaching out to them.”
Some of the signatories to the letterinclude Bunmi Olugbade, Chief Mosu Aguda, Sanya Adesua, Fajana Ojo-Ade among others.
