Ekiti decides: PDP gov candidate, Kolawole, casts vote


The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Ekiti State governorship election, Bisi Kolawole, has cast his vote at Unit 001, Ward 8 in Efon-Ekiti, Efon local government area of the state.

This is as the governorship election mood builds up in Ekiti as the electorate trooped out to elect the candidate of their choice.

As early as 6 am, residents of Ado Ekiti trooped out in their numbers to participate in today’s governorship election holding across the 16 local government areas of the state.

While many trekked long distances following the restriction on vehicular movements, a few went to their polling units by commercial motorbikes.

At the different polling units visited in the state capital, voters were seen checking their names on the displayed voter registers while others were in queues.

The Independent National Electoral Commission’s ad hoc officials arrived on time in readiness for the election, just as security agencies were on ground.

At about 7.30 am, the INEC National Commissioner (Ekiti, Oyo, Lagos), Mr. Sam Olumekun, was sighted at Ereguru Ward 08, Unit 05, Ado Ekiti on a monitoring assessment tour of polling units in the state.
