PDP Leader Seeks Support For Oni
A Peoples Democratic Party stalwart in Ekiti State, Gbenga Olofin, has called for support for former Governor Segun Oni, who is seeking to reclaim his mandate at the Supreme Court.

Oni had approached the apex court to challenge the nullification of his election and the declaration of Governor Kayode Fayemi as governor of Ekiti State.

Olofin, who was represented by one of his loyalists, Mr. Gbenga Adekunle, at the presentation of a book, Zoning and Rotation of Political Positions, written by Solomon Okeya, said zoning formula would be respected in the state if Oni wins at the Supreme Court.

He said, “The case filed at the Supreme Court by former governor, Segun Oni, will make it easy for zoning formula to be respected. Everybody should come out and support the case at the Supreme Court.”

Olofin, who noted that two other senatorial districts in the state had produced governors, stressed that it was the turn of the Ekiti South Senatorial District to produce the next governor of the state in 2014.

He said, “But I want to say that presently, the governorship aspirants (from Ekiti South Senatorial District) are just moving around with no central agenda to be able to convince the other senatorial districts that they are serious.

“There are too many people now moving around that they want to be governor from the southern senatorial district. It depends on how serious they are, that will make other senatorial districts to believe that they are serious about it.”

Another PDP leader, Chief Ojo Falegan, who chaired the event, said it was the turn of the Ekiti South to produce the next governor of the state.

Okeya, said he wrote the book to support zoning arrangement in the PDP, saying the initiative would make all the zones in the state to have a sense of belonging.
