Ekiti 2018: 6 PDP Aspirants Suspend Ambition Because of Fayose
They want to seek an interpretation of the law and attempt to do what before now has been termed "the impossible".
This is to enable Governor Ayodele Fayose seek legal redress over his aborted first tenure as governor of the state, and possibly re-contest in the gubernatorial election in 2018.
The aspirants are current Deputy Governor of the state, Kolapo Olusola, from Ikere Local Government Area, Bisi Omoyeni, Ikere LGA, Sikiru Tae Lawal, Ado LGA, Kayode Oso, Ado LGA, Owoseni Ajayi, Ise LGA and Bisi Komolafe, Efon LGA.
The six aspirants at a meeting on Tuesday said they suspended their gubernatorial aspirations pending the determination of the matter in court.
The communique of their meeting which was co-signed by the aspirants and read by the Deputy Governor Olusola reads in part: “That the Supreme Court in the case of APC versus PDP & ORS resolved that the first tenure of Governor Peter Ayodele Fayose was unlawfully terminated in a civilian coup-like manner and hence deserves redress.’’
