The aspirants are incumbent Deputy Governor of the state, Olusola Eleka; a senator representing Ekiti South Senatorial District, Abiodun Olujimi and the immediate past National Publicity Secretary of the party, Dayo Adeyeye.

"We note that our popularity in the state is a direct response to Governor Fayose's achievements in delivering democracy dividends to the people".

Prof. Olusola on his part said:"I thank God for this excellent job, entire process peaceful, fair and credible, this shows that our able leaders are projecting PDP as a party worthy of emulation". Our only concern is hoodlums from the other parties, but they will not have access to the venue. Whether they like it or not, we shall give them another 16-0 again with the support of Ekiti people.

"With the emergence of a formidable candidate such as Olusola-Eleka, and the incontrovertible popularity of the PDP across Ekiti, we are already standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the people as we set for a very robust, issue-based campaign". We are no more ready for that.
