Welcome to our live updates on the Ekiti State All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election.

The election which initially took place on Saturday, May 5, was rescheduled after the exercise was allegedly disrupted by hoodlums.

While the Chairman of the Governorship Primary Election Committee, Governor Tanko Al-makura of Nasarawa State, condemned last week’s exercise, he expressed hope for a better and more peaceful repeat.


Following the cancellation of the primary, and consultations by APC leaders and the aspirants, the party fixed Friday, May 11 for the primary.

The election had been rescheduled for Friday, but the APC shifted it to Saturday following further consultations between its National Working Committee (NWC) and aspirants in the poll and other stakeholders.

Thirty-three candidates had indicated interest to participate in the primary.

The number was, however, reduced to 32 following the withdrawal of the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu.

He announced his decision on Thursday while addressing reporters in Ado Ekiti, the state capital.

Senator Ojudu, who said he took the decision in the interest of peace, after the previous exercise was marred with violence, declined to announce his support for any of the remaining aspirants.

Here’s a full list of the 32 candidates.
