Ekiti Guber: Fayose Drops Eleka, Endorses Kolawole For Governor

Former Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has abandoned his support for his former deputy, Prof. Olusola Eleka to become the next governor.

Recall that Fayose had supported Eleka, who was the flagbearer of the People Democratic Party( PDP), to become the governor during the last state governship election.

Naija News reports that the former governor has now endorsed the Chairman of the PDP in Ekiti, Chief Bisi Kolawole, for governor in next year’s election.

On Sunday, Fayose in solidarity stormed the Efon-Alaaye home of Kolawole, who has been his ally since when he was governor.

He was received by the party chairman, his wife, and Efon Local Government PDP Chairman, Yemi Ajanaku.

Kolawole, a former councillor and member of the House of Assembly was Environment Commissioner during Fayose’s second term.

Speaking at home of the PDP chairman, Fayose said the endorsement will not affect his current position as chairman of the party in the state.
