Kolapo Olusola has been declared winner of the Ekiti State PDP Primaries held at Eagle Hall, Ado Ekiti on Tuesday.

Olusola who is the current deputy governor and the preferred aspirant of Governor Ayo Fayose, defeated Prince Dayo Adeyeye, a former National Publicity Secretary of the party.

Counting is ongoing, but Olusola so far has scored more than 1,000 votes.

A total of 1,968 delegates were accredited for the exercise, with the same number voting and 7 void votes.

Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta state, is the chairman of the electoral committee.

Earlier Senator Abiodun Olujimi, who was the third aspirant, stepped down for Adeyeye.

The election was conducted peacefully and transparently, with both aspirants pledging to accept the outcome of the election.

Recall that the primaries of the All Progressives Congress APC was botched last Saturday and postponed indefinitely after violence broke out at the venue.
