Live updates of Ekiti election 2022 and ekiti election results can be accessed below.

The Ekiti governorship election is taking place today, Saturday, June 18, 2022, in Ekiti State, southwest Nigeria.

This online news platform understands that the Ekiti election 2022 has the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party, and the Social Democratic Party (SDP) as the main contenders in terms of political parties contesting the election.

The ruling APC has Biodun Oyebanji as its candidate, Olabisi Kolawole is the candidate of the PDP, while Segun Oni who was earlier touted to have stepped down for PDP, is bearing the flag of the SDP.

Although the Ekiti election 2022 has been seen by political analysts as a three-horse race, other political parties such as the Young Progressives Party (YPP) with its candidate, Ranti Ajayi; African Democratic Congress (ADC), represented by Oluwole Oluyede; and the Action Democratic Party ADP, with Kemi Elebute Halle, cannot be regarded as pushovers.
