Ekiti Election: Tinubu, Aspirants Meeting Deadlocked, Fayemi Stages A Walkout

The marathon meeting between some Southwest chieftains of All Progressives Congress, APC, led by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and the 33 aspirants seeking the ticket of the party in the Ekiti state gubernatorial election held in Abuja on Tuesday ended in deadlock. It was gathered that the aspirants rejected moves by the party leaders for a consensus candidate among the 33 of them.

But the former chairman of the party, Bisi Akande, told journalists that a decision that would be in the best interest of the party was taken at the meeting. He, however, said the decision, which he did not reveal to journalists, would be communicated to the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.

He explained that the party's constitution allowed for the emergence of a candidate through consensus. “Primary elections are already written in our constitution, but all we are after is the happiness of the generality of the leadership, the contestants and our party in general," Akande stated.
