Ekiti guber: Primate Ayodele urges PDP to pick Segun Oni as its candidate
Meanwhile, the leader of INRI Evangelical spiritual church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has predicted that the only way the PDP can be victorious and dislodge the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti is by choosing Segun Oni as its candidate for the election.
Primate Ayodele explained that there is no other anointed candidate in Ekiti PDP apart from Oni.
How Segun Oni obtained PDP nomination form
Engr Oni threw his hat in the ring to contest the poll in September 2021.
The former Ekiti state governor obtained his expression of interest and nomination forms to contest on the platform of the PDP which sent shivers down the spine of his opponents.
His campaign director picked up the forms at the PDP National Secretariat, Wadata Plaza, Abuja.
