A former Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, has spoken up about his failure to win the state’s gubernatorial election in 2018, saying Federal might helped Governor Kayode Fayemi emerge victorious.
Olusola who contested on the Peoples Democratic Party’s ticket in 2018, vowed to return I’m 2022 to claim what he feels was rightfully his.
He said “Ekiti people, based on their harrowing experience in the hands of the APC government, will defend their votes in 2022. All hands will be on deck to prevent a repeat of the massive rigging that characterised the 2018 election.
“By the grace of God, I have intimated our leaders of my intention to contest when the window of opportunity opens again. I will run on the records of the achievements of the last PDP government which I was part of, my experience in politics and my vision for Ekiti State.
“You all knew what happened in 2018, the Federal Government’s security agencies came to intimidate us and they attacked virtually everyone. The then governor, Fayose, was attacked; my family members and I were attacked. They created fear in the hearts of people.”
