President of the apex body for Muslim women, Federation of Muslim Women Associations of Nigeria (FOMWAN), Ekiti State Chapter and former Commissioner for Women Affairs, Dr Habibat Adubiaro, has joined the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ekiti State.
Mrs Habibat is from Ado Ekiti and a Senior Lecturer at the Federal University in Oye-Ekiti.
Barring any last-minute change, Dr Adubiaro will be the deputy governorship candidate to Dr Kayode Fayemi of the APC for the July 14 governorship election in the state.
If picked, the APC would have matched the PDP in the selection and even surpass it.
While the PDP used Deji Ogunsakin as deputy governorship candidature to fix Muslims and Ado Ekiti, APC’s choice will cut across religious sentiment being a Muslim and settle Ado Ekiti being the biggest voter concentration area.
Political analysts say APC has also beat the PDP on gender balance.
Also, Muslims may tend more to the side of Alhaja Habibat Adubiaro been an active Muslim known in the Islamic circle.
They said Deji Ogunsakin, though a Muslim, cannot muster the popularity commanded by Alhaja Adubiaro among the Muslims in Ekiti state.
The stage is set and the game is getting more interesting.
