Learning from how the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary was botchedÂ by irate party members, there was massive security beefÂ up around the arena where the Peoples DemocraticÂ Party is holding its governorship primary in Ekiti State today.
Security agencies, comprising the police,Â men of the Department of State Services (DSS) andÂ Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC)Â have taken over the expansiveÂ Uncle Eagle Event Centre located along Ado-Ikere road, where the event is scheduled to hold.
Accreditation ofÂ the 2,092 delegates who are eligible to participate in todayâ€™s election has begun.
It was a little bit delayed owing to early morning downpour in Ado Ekiti and surrounding towns.
The Governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, is the Chairman of the PDP governorship primary in Ekiti State.
Contestants that will slug it out include Ekiti State DeputyÂ Governor, Prof Kolapo Olusola; former Minister, Prince Dayo Adeyeye; and Senate Deputy Minority Whip, Senator Biodun Olujimi.
Fayose has endorsed his deputy andÂ has deployed his structures all over the 177 wards to ensure that Olusolaâ€™s candidacy is actualised.
