Governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Representing Ekiti South at the National Assembly, Senator Biodun Olujimi, has challenged the incumbent governor of Ekiti state, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, to stop intimidating aspirants and to allow the party to organize primary election.
Olujimi, who stated this when she submitted her nomination form yesterday at the party headquarters in Abuja, explained that “there were four of us in the race and we were meeting because the governor already was biased.
“The party in the state was biased, almost everyone was biased, so the four of us decided to speak with one voice. I can tell you now that two of the aspirants already asked me to continue. So there are just three of us in the race”.
She revealed that “all the aspirants are being intimidated except the governor’s candidate, but I cannot be intimidated, I know the beginning of the government, I was part of the beginning of the government, I was part of the other government.
“So no one can intimidate me, I don’t feel intimidated at all. I know that if there is a free and fair primary, everything will go well and by the way, it is one party, who ever wins should be supported and who ever loses should go home, that is how primaries has been.
“If we have three, what is wrong in going to the field for primary? It is the primary of our party, it is not the general elections. So we are all in the race, three of us. And I can assure you that it is either of us on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party that will win, she said.
