Ekiti Governorship: Fayemi Picks Muslim Woman As Running Mate
Except for last minute change, the President of the apex body for Muslim women, Federation of Muslim Women Associations of Nigeria (FOMWAN), Ekiti State Chapter, Dr Habibat Adubiaro has been picked as running mate of All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Dr Fayemi.
Adubiaro, who was a former Commissioner for Women Affairs in the state, is from Ado Ekiti, and a Senior lecturer at the Federal University in Oye-Ekiti.
With her selection, APC has matched the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in selection and even surpassed it.
While the PDP picked Deji Ogunsakin as it deputy governorship candidate to fix Muslims and Ado Ekiti, APC’s choice will cut across religious sentiment being a Muslim and settle Ado Ekiti being the biggest voter concentration area.
APC also beat the PDP on gender balance.
Also, Muslims may tend more to the side of Adubiaro been an active Muslim known in the Islamic circle.
Ogunsakin though a Muslim cannot muster the popularity commanded by Adubiaro among the Muslims in Ekiti state.
The stage is set and the game is getting more interesting.
