Eleka is one of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leading aspirants in the governorship election slated for July 14, 2018 the across the 16 local governments in the state.
The State Coordinator, Mr Adesuyi Alex, stated this during a recent caucus meeting of EGM held at Ado Ekiti.
At the meeting were the entire central working committee of the group and the local government coordinators.
EGM said after the meeting that it would go ahead with its earlier plan to mobilise people from all the 16 local governments to do their voters’ registration so as to participate in the election.
“We are going to mobilise those who have not registered massively to the nearest INEC office in their respective local government to register within the shortest time so as to get their PVC ready for the coming election. So, they can be part of the determinants in the election,” Alex stated.
