Ekiti 2014 : Accord, APGA, MEGA, UPP parties get governorship candidates

In an acceptance speech, the Accord Party candidate, Kole Ajayi, promised to evolve “a home-grown governance” if elected governor.

Four additional governorship candidates have emerged under various political parties in preparation for the June 21 governorship election in Ekiti State.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that parties whose candidates emerged on Thursday included the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA; Accord Party; MEGA Party; and United Peoples Party, UPP.

The deadline set by INEC for parties to end their primaries is April 14.

Those who were either elected or affirmed by the parties are Kole Ajayi (Accord Party), Tola Ogundana (UPP), Bola Akinwale (MEGA party), and Gbenga Afeni (APGA).

None of the candidates had challengers and were adopted by delegates in a peaceful atmosphere.

Though, security was tight at the different venues, the exercise was devoid of violence.

Top officials of INEC from the state were on hand to supervise the primaries while the national headquarters of the different parties sent down representatives to monitor the proceedings.

The State Chairman of MEGA Party, Segun Fashinku, and that of UPP, Awogbemi Moses, expressed satisfaction with the exercise.

In an acceptance speech, the Accord Party candidate, Kole Ajayi, promised to evolve “a home-grown governance” if elected governor.
