It’s no longer an hidden agenda as the agitations for the south Senatorial district of Ekiti State to produce the next governor of the state.
A group known to be “Ekiti South Development Agenda” led by Com. Idowu Afuye had been working assiduously with all the stakeholders across the party lines to make sure a southerner emerged as the governor of Ekiti State in the next governorship election of the state by year 2022.
As the momentum is gathering towards the 2022 guber poll in Ekiti State, a group of PDP youth across the 6 local governments that made up Ekiti South Senatorial District, a constituency been represented by Sen. Biodun Olujimi since 2015 at the Red Chamber Nigerian Senate had come up with a name “Ekiti South Agenda youth movement wing” to mobilize, root and make a political plan for a southerner towards the next guber poll.
In a statement released by the group, received by Ojaomonews.com. “it’s high time we fight against the marginalization of the South, the southerners paid their dues before, during and after the creation of Ekiti State. It’s worrisome and very absurd to have been playing the southerners to the corner when it’s time to enjoy what we all fought for.
Late Olowoporoku was played out despite of his efforts to make Ekiti State real, Fmr deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Prof kolapo Olusola Eleka was also dribbled and the south was rigged out.
At this moment, we’re not taking it with levity hands.
Ekiti South Senatorial District is the most populous district in Ekiti State with six local governments area while others only have five. We’re tired of marginalization, shortchanging and rubbing”.
The secretary of the group Com. Tamale Augustine who made the statement available for Ojaomonews.com in Ikere-Ekiti today, April 18, 2021. Said, the group had mobilized 50 youths in each local government of the Senatorial within two weeks, very soon we’re visiting every tertiary institutions across the state for sensitization, we’re visiting every public places in the Senatorial district and our flyers will be in all the streets of Ekiti State soon, he added
