One of the formidable groups in Ekiti State soliciting support for Prof. Kolapo Olusola Eleka over his governorship ambition, Ekiti Women Emancipation has concluded plans for it’s official inauguration.
The women group made it known while receiving new members during a meeting in Ado-Ekiti on Monday with the representatives of the group in all the sixteen local government areas of the state.
The Coordinator of the group, Mrs. Adenike Adedayo explained efforts made so far on the inauguration and the reasons the group decided to choose Prof. Olusola Eleka as their candidate.
“Due to the number of professors in Ekiti, the state is known as one of the most educationally advanced states in the country and it won’t be a crime if one of the professors could be voted in as governor of the fountain of knowledge”, she said.
She described Prof. Kolapo Olusola as a vibrant, articulate and the most humble governorship aspirant, urging the new members to see him as the next governor of the state.
Providing information on the mission and vision statement of the group to the new members, the former Secretary, Emure Local Government, Mrs. Modupe Ogundele said the group was formed to advocate for the liberty of women in the society and to ensure that women are not deprived of political positions.
Mrs. Ogundele said new members will be furnished with detailed information about the group during inauguration.
The official inauguration of the group is slated to hold on Thursday, 19th April , 2018 and dignitaries expected at the inauguration are the notable supporters of Prof. Eleka.
