EKITI 2022: Media Manipulation Cannot Set Ikere Against Eleka, Aide Replies BKCO A spokesman of the former Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Adebisi Adeola, has called on the Bisi Kolawole's Campaign Organisation, BKCO, and its sponsors to desist from politics of calumny, adding that no amount of media manipulations can set Ikere against Prof. Kolapo Olusola Eleka. Adeola reacted on the heels of the recent poorly-scripted charade from Bisi Kolawole's Campaign Organisation which called about 12 leaders in Ikere for a meeting in Lagos in H.E, Ayo Fayose's house and later intimidated them to support his adopted aspirant who doubles as PDP Chairman in Ekiti State few days ago. He added that LG Chairman, Mr. Sunday Asebiomo, including all stakeholders in Ikere are solidly behind Prof. Eleka. The media aide who said Prof. Eleka's widely acceptability across the state has put Bisi Kolawole's camp in a state of dilemma, confirmed that no amount of political gimmicks can reduce Eleka's popularity or box him aside from contesting the 2022 PDP governoship primary election. "It is unfortunate that Bisi Kolawole's sponsor, who should be seen as a father of the party, is out to play a game which is tantamount to set people against other aspirants. "We have been duly informed by the Youth Leader from Are/Araromi Ward, Mr. Sunday Oladunjoye who was gagged by Bisi Kolawole's sponsor to adopt his solely adopted candidate in Lagos that they were not briefed of the meeting before they got to Lagos," He said. Adeola further stated: "It came as a shock after the meeting when Fayose gave us placards, indicating adoption of Hon. Bisi Kolawole. "I can categorically tell you that Fayose manipulated us to adopt Bisi Kolawole. He gave us money after the meeting which some of us have remitted into the purse of the party in our respective wards. "Prof. Kolapo Olusola Eleka is a man of virtue who commands respect from all the local governments in Ekiti. His aspiration cuts across all Ekiti, not Ikere alone. "It will be disastrous for any Ikere indigene to go against Eleka who had been there for us in many ways," he added. Adeola concluded that Prof. Kolapo Olusola will not be distracted with unproductive noise from Bisi Kolawole's camp, explaining that his boss is a candidate to beat in the forthcoming party primaries.
