The embattled Olukere of Ikere-Ekiti, Oba Ganiyu Obasanyin has declared in his palace while speaking with journalists on Saturday that the Ikere-Ekiti community was not in support of the candidature of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Prof. Olusola Eleka.
Eleka, an indigene of Ikere-Ekiti is the current Deputy Governor of the state, and he had since been having issues with the traditional ruler, over the court case he (Olukere) had with the governor which he was alleged of Murder.
The traditional ruler said the people of the town are against Eleka who he said is not a bonafide indigene of the town.
He explained that, Ikere community is having nothing less four indigenes of the town contesting the election under different political parties, it was only Eleka that did not seek his support.
Although there are two traditional rulers in the town, Oba Obasanyin who claimed to be the traditional head of the community said his people are against Eleka for allegedly failing to seek for his support.
He said, “Eleka will lose in every polling unit in Ikere-Ekiti, including his family compound. He will be put to shame after the results of the election are announced.
“Every other contestant come here to seek my support, except Eleka. He does not have the support of the people of our town. We are looking to a day a true son of Ikere-Ekiti will emerge as the Governor of Ekiti State, but certainly not Eleka,” he said.
