Dreams are good but when they become an inordinate ambition they never come true. These words prompted AirwavesReport.com to the emerging news around Ekiti State-born prolific journalist; Sen. Babafemi Ojudu’s recent governorship ambition.
It was exclusively reported that the Special Adviser on Political Matters to President Buhari is eyeing the governorship seat of Ekiti State in 2018.
It was also stated in the report that he has started consultations already while his political machinery is on full alert and has started work already.
Senator Ojudu who will as expected run on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), represented Ekiti Central Senatorial District in the Upper Chamber during the 7th Senate and was Deputy Chairman of the Senate Committee on Defence.
That is as far as the story goes, but permutations are that, the odds do not favour him as there are clear indications that the Ekiti State APC hierarchy and stakeholders as secretly putting heads together to settle for a thorough-breed Ekiti State indigene who can give the incumbent governor a good run at the polls; and Senator Ojudu doesn't fit to this arithmetic.
In this light, Hon. Femi Bamisile comes into the picture on account of his deeply grassrooted potential among the Ekitis and he has also been going around canvassing for the much needed support and endorsement from the people home and abroad. This is why, Senator Ojudu's clandestine moves are being seen in many quarters as tall and pie dream.
