The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kola Ologbondiyan, has lauded the independent public surveys conducted by the NOI Polls, which showed Kolapo Olusola as being ahead of his opponents.

Ologbondiyan, who gave the commendation in a statement, said the party was not surprised by the outcome of the survey, which was conducted by one of the leading, impartial country-specific and research-based polling bodies in Africa.

“It is instructive that the poll reflected the fact that the PDP candidate enjoys overwhelming support across the three senatorial districts.

“He also leads in goodwill among the broader voting demography cutting across all age and gender categories across the state, with a significant 8-point margin against Kayode Fayemi.

While congratulating Olusola, the PDP noted that even without the poll, the APC and its candidate, who had been rejected by the people, are aware that they have no stand in the election.

He warned against subverting the will of the people by planning to use compromised INEC and security officials to manipulate the election.

“The APC must note that people of Ekiti State are at alert and ready to resist any attempt by anybody whatsoever to subvert their will at this election.

“We restate our resolve with the people to ensure that only the wishes and aspirations of the people prevail,” the statement said.

Meanwhile, the Ondo State Chairman of the PDP, Clement Faborode, has explained why voters must reject former governor Kayode Fayemi.

According to him, Ekiti people would not want a repeat of the bad experience that Ondo people are having under an APC-led government of Rotimi Akeredolu.

Faborode stated this in Ado-Ekiti yesterday, while addressing some council workers who came on a solidarity visit to Governor Ayodele Fayose.

A statement by Fayose’s Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, quoted Faborode as saying that the APC in Ondo State has reversed the gains made under a PDP government.

He said: “The free health services and education provided by the PDP in Ondo State were cancelled by the APC administration. Didn’t you hear when pregnant women protested in Ondo State?

“At the state hospitals where pregnant women used to deliver free of charge, they now collect huge sums of money from them.”

Faborode added that students in tertiary institutions now pay through the nose, as all the promises made by the APC were not fulfilled.
