There was palpable excitement as a prominent son of Ekiti State and former Executive Secretary of the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA), Dr. Oluwole Oluleye recently declared his ambition to vie for the gubernatorial position of Ekiti State.



Dr Oluleye, who made this declaration at a colourful ceremony in his hometown, Efon Alaaye, headquarters of Efon Local Government Area and Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, said that the state will regain its lost glory under his leadership.

Oluleye, who also served as Executive Secretary of Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF), was joined by his wife, Pat and other admirers in announcing his bid for the Oke Ayoba Villa in Ado-Ekiti.

A prominent community leader and former Executive Chairman of Broadcasting Service of Ekiti State, Otunba Kunle Olasope urged Efon indigenes to support Oluleye’s aspirations.

In his own remarks, the former Efon council chairman and ex-Commissioner for Agriculture Prof. Adio Folayan, said the time has come for the many indigenes that had benefited from Oluleye’s milk of kindness to reciprocate his good gesture.

Folayan assured that party delegates from other local government areas were ready to support Oluleye’s ambition but those from Efon must lead the way for others to follow.


Dr Oluleye, who disclosed that he had toured the local governments not less than three times and knows the needs of the people, which he would use his development agenda to meet, pledged to make agriculture attractive to the youths by providing incentives and modern technology to boost food security and generate job opportunities for them.

He explained that infrastructure and public utilities, welfare of civil servants, teachers and pensioners would be accorded due attention under his administration, even as he described women as important stakeholders in politics.

Oluleye , who was received at the APC secretariat in Ado-Ekiti by the State Working Committee and State Executive Committee, led by the Deputy Chairman, Mrs. Kemisola Olaleye, also inaugurated the headquarters of his campaign organisation in Ureje area of Ado-Ekiti and promised to implement an all-encompassing blueprint that will bring sustainable development to Ekiti and give the people a new lease of life, if he wins the APC ticket and the election.

He explained that his 33-year career as a public servant and a technocrat, among other national assignments had prepared him for demands of the office of governor.

He said: “Today, I humbly present myself to you, on the platform of our great party, All Progressive Congress, as a child of necessity. Without mincing words, I am stepping out to declare my intention to run for the Governorship position of our beloved Ekiti State, come 2018.

“I have had a fulfilled career, which spanned cumulatively over 33 years as both a public servant and a technocrat. I rose steadily in cadre and responsibilities from the National Productivity Centre, to the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA), as the Pioneer Executive Secretary and to being Executive Secretary Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF), amongst other national assignments.

Oluleye, said party would organise a free, fair and credible primary for its aspirants.
