2022 guber : Kolawole picks nomination form, says we ‘ll deliver Ekiti for PDP

From Priscilla Ediare, Ado-Ekiti
The immediate past Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Ekiti State, Otunba Bisi Kolawole, has obtained his expression of interest and nomination forms, to contest the 2022 governorship election in the state.
The forms were obtained on Friday, at the PDP National headquarters, Abuja, by the Director General of his campaign organisation, Hon. Segun Adekola and two other former House of Representatives members, Hon Kehinde Agboola and Hon Ayo Oladimeji as well as the campaign Director of Media and Publicity, Lere Olayinka and Hon Ariyo Afolabi.
Kolawole, who has the backing of former governor of the State, Ayo Fayose, had resigned his position as State Chairman of the party to contest the governorship.
The Campaign Director of Media and Publicity said in a statement that Adekola described Ekiti as a “PDP State that was snatched at gunpoint by those with no love for the State.”
He said; “Our journey to regain Ekiti State has started formally and with God and the people on our side, by this time next year, Otunba Bisi Kolawole will be addressed as Ekiti State Governor-Elect.
“For us in the campaign team of Bisi Kolawole, we are sure of getting the party ticket and are already looking forward to the election in June next year.
“It is therefore a promise from us that  Bisi Kolawole governorship will return Ekiti to that path of progress and development that the State was robbed of in 2018.”
While commending Fayose for his support and commitment to the Bisi Kolawole governorship aspiration, the Campaign Director General said : “For the love they have for Fayose, the people of Ekiti can not wait to use their votes to deliver the state for the PDP and Kolawole.”
