Ekiti 2022: ADP Governorship candidate, running mate in fierce battle
The tussle between the Action Democratic Party (ADP) governorship candidate in Ekiti, Kemi Elebute-Halle, and her running mate, Idowu Afuye, has heated up.
With the election coming up next month, Afuye has vowed to resign from the party at any time.
Afuye made the announcement on Wednesday in Ado-Ekiti in a statement signed by him and made available to journalists.
He said that his choice was motivated by Mrs. Kemi Elebute-Halle’s disdain for party structure.
The gubernatorial running partner also claimed that the party lacked internal democracy.
He stated that his next political move would be revealed within the following 24 hours.
He said “What remains sacrosanct to him is to contribute his quota to the development of the state not minding the platform.
When contacted, the Elebute-Halle party’s Campaign Manager, Mr. Sunday Orire, said it was “a mere threat“.
