Less than three months to the June Governorship election in Ekiti state, two aides of Governor Kayode Fayemi have resigned their appointments and had defected to the Social Democratic Party.

The two aides are the Special Adviser to the governor on Internal Security,  Israel Adesokan also known as Jaru and Olaiya Kupolati, Special Assistant on Electoral matters.

They are teeming up Chief Segun Oni in the SDP to realise their political ambition.

Jaru was said to have defected to SDP at ward A in his home town, Iyin Ekiti where he addressed other members and expressed the optimism that the party would record victory in the forthcoming election.

Ohus own part, Kupolati also announced his defection to the SDP at his Iye Ekiti ward where he was received by stalwarts of the party.

Recall that a former governor of the state, Chief Segun Oni, who lost out in the primary contest of the Peoples Democratic Party is the candidate of the SDP in the election.

Sources in Ekiti politics said since he was picked by the SDP as the flagbearer, there has been mass exodus of members from the PDP and the ruling All Progressive Congress to the SDP.

With this scenario, Ekiti governorship election promises to be interesting and unpredictable at least for now.
