2023: Rep defeats Fayemi-backed aspirant for APC ticket

Ms Adenuga, who walked out of the venue of the election when voting got underway, complained that the arrangement for the primary election was not satisfactory.

A member of the House of Representatives, Femi Bamisile, on Friday, defeated his opponent in the All Progressives Congress contest for the ticket of Ekiti South Constituency 2.

His opponent, Bumi Adenuga, is a serving member of the Ekiti State House of Assembly representing Emure State Constituency.

She reportedly had the backing of the state governor, Kayode Fayemi, in her bid to unseat the ranking member of the House.

Mr Bamisile contested the last governorship primaries which produced Biodun Oyebanji, the current candidate of the APC for the June 18 governorship election in the state.

He had fallen out of favour with the state governor after the primaries, for which Ms Adenuga was prompted to replace him.

A total of 160 delegates filed out for the election at the Ode-Ekiti Civic Centre, for the primary election which lasted about three hours.

The Returning Officer, Kunle Ajayi, said all 160 delegates voted for Mr Bamisile, while Ms Adenuga recorded zero votes.

Ms Adenuga, who walked out of the venue of the election when voting got underway, complained that the arrangement for the primary election was not satisfactory.


She told PREMIUM TIMES that her agents were not allowed to stay on the podium where delegates were being guided in the process, but only her opponent’s were allowed.

“I don’t know why they refused to allow my agents. They said the delegates could not write and that they were helping them,” she complained.

“I don’t really know what to do at this stage because you know I am not a money bag.”

However, an observer explained that it was an agreement among the parties that agents to the aspirants would be required to go up there and assist those delegates who could not write but indicated they were voting for their aspirants.

He said since no delegate voted for her, there was no need for her agent to go up the podium.

Reacting after the results were declared, Mr Bamisile said the election was free and fair and the results were “overwhelming.”

“What the delegates did this afternoon was totally overwhelming and unfathomable,” he said.


“I was just sitting throughout the election praying that God should not put me to shame.

“Now I thank God and everyone for the support and I want to appreciate the person who contested against me, we are all victors in this contest, there are no losers.”

Mr Bamisile said he would now focus on ensuring that the party wins the forthcoming governorship election.

Sebi they told you people that SW governors are not in charge of the party in the states you thought it was a joke.

I don't understand how Fayemi thought a state house of assembly member will defeat Bamisile in his own house.

The very same Bamisile

Though I'm apathetic to political stories.

I'll still make an input. Politics in Nigeria is not worth your attention as a youth.

I advice you start a business. And the good news is now you can start your business with or without capital.

I think Fayemi and Bamisile have settled behind the curtains. Bamisile to get his return ticket to the green chambers while he in return supports the election of his governorship candidate in the forthcoming Ekiti guber election. The poor woman was only used as a canon folder. There's no way on earth the governor's choice will score zero. Impossible!
