Why The Next Election In Ekiti Will Be The Most Competitive In Nigeria(Reasons) by blogbuilder: 4:10pm On Mar 12, 2018
In the next four months, electorates in Ekiti State will be voting for a Governor who will take over the affair of the state for the next four years.

Awareness have been on since last year as it was seen on the posters in most town in Ekiti and on social media.

Many of the aspirants are strategising in order to make their popularity known to their party by taking their campaign to the grassroot.
Example of this was portrayed by Mr Bimbo Daramola who started an initiative of buying 1000 Jamb form for the indigenes of the state .

With observation on the heat of campaign by the political parties in the state , one out of the two major parties in the state(PDP and APC) will produce who'll wear the crown.

Ekiti will be producing the 11th governor in 19years


Here are the reasons

Fayose will like to retain the state under PDP:As we all know that Ekiti state is the only southwestern state that is being govern by pdp. The likes of Fayose, Wike and co will like to retain the mandate for their party. Losing Ekiti state to APC will have impacts on PDP especially in 2018 general election.

APC will like to win the state: Using the case of Lagos State as an example, during Goodluck Jonathan regime, PDP try every possible best to win Lagos State because it was the only state under the opposition since 1999 in the southwest then.
If you think APC will not do anything possible to win the election, then you may be wrong.

It's the most competitive governorship election ever in Ekiti state :I haven't seen a more competitive gubernatorial election like this in Nigeria since 1999. Do you believe that people contesting for APC primary election in the state are more than 25.
In total, more than 60 candidates are vying for the post ..Apart from this, more people will still show interest.

Many of the Aspirants are not first timers in the game: Yes, you heard it right. Most of the aspirants are not first timer.The likes of M.O.B ,Orire has contested in the previous gubernatorial election. Some are political office holder ranging form senators to deputy governor, appointees and so on.

It will draw a lot of international observers: Since the last general election where Goodluck Jonathan conceded defeat against Buhari, International community has been shifting their attention to Nigeria elections. Most of the international organisation will like to come so as know how the election will be.

Remember, this election is like a preparation ground for the next general election...

Lol this Ekiti ehnn, If you see their politics online and the plenty noise from Fayose and other politicians in the state, you will think that it is one special State with good resources.

But when you visit the State you will realize that it is just anoda Yeye State.

However it is much better than Kogi State.. Please Guyz let us always remember Kogi State in our Prayer. It is not easy to have Useless Governors Back to Back.. The only other State to Have achieved this is Abia State, before the current one who’s a little better.

God help us all

That's where the real battle is..

PDP in ekiti is behind Fayose deputy but Apc should go and sort themselves ..
I doubt if they will come out without fight and bitterness as usual ..

When pdp organised the National chairmanship election, the same Yorubas forwarded many contestants and failed and then blaimed Wike that he insulted the Yorubas race. Prof. Adeniran who have never left Abuja and Lagos for once wanted to win election. They all shared their votes and failed, the pdp from the south south remain united and win. Imagine the number of apc yoruba members doing the same and am VERY SURE and convinced apc will fail.
