Senator Biodun Olujimi representing (Ekiti South) has pulled out of the ongoing People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship primary election in Ekiti State shortly after the exercise commenced.

Addressing journalists in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital, Olujimi said her decision to withdraw from the primary was informed by alleged irregularities during the accreditation of delegates.

The PDP chieftain said she could not be part of a political process that had excluded party delegates who are mainly her supporters, adding that development runs against the tenets of participatory democracy.

Olujimi said other aspirants have the full complement of the delegates from their local government given to them by the party while she was given only 12 from her local government.

According to him: “I pulled out because every other aspirant has full compliments of delegates from their local government. It pleased the party to give me only 12 automatic delegates in mine.
