Here’s the sad reason why Senator Abiodun Olujimi had to withdraw from the PDP Guber primaries 

The lawmaker representing Ekiti South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Abiodun Olujimi, has withdrawn from the primary election of the Peoples Democratic Paty (PDP) in the state.

Senator Olujimi is one of the key aspirants vying for the PDP ticket in the June 18 governorship election in Ekiti State.

On why she decided to quit, the senator cited gender bias and an unfair resolution of matters arising from a lingering controversial congress of the party.

According to her,  the list to be used for the primary puts her at a disadvantage as her local government is left with only 12 delegates as decided by the party leadership.

Tension has been rife in the state over the governorship primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) slated for Wednesday and Thursday respectively.

Some of the candidates in the race include former Governor Segun Oni and former Governor Ayodele Fayose’s deputy and PDP candidate in the 2018 election, Professor Olusola Eleka.

Others include former PDP National Treasurer Wale Aribisala, as well as Bisi Kolawole, Kayode Adaramodu, Lateef Ajijola, and Mrs Titilayo Owolabi-Akerele.

In the meantime, the accreditation of delegates at the Ekiti State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary turned dramatic after some chieftains exchanged blows on Wednesday.

During the accreditation of delegates, there was a heated argument and fisticuff among some of the chieftains over the authentication of certain delegates from some local governments.

Some argued that certain individuals are not supposed to be on the list, implying that their names were smuggled in.
