Ekiti governorship election: I’m happy I voted – 105-year-old grandma

A 105-year-old grandmother, Mrs. Felicia Fayomi, on Saturday expressed her joy after she cast her vote in the ongoing gubernatorial election in Ekiti state.

The elderly woman, who was accompanied to the voting station by one of her grandchildren at Unit 2, Ward 6, Ifaki Ekiti in the state’s Ido-Osi Local Government Area, was vibrant and told reporters that she had voted.

“I am happy to vote,” The grandma said, before being led back home.

In other news, Bianca Ojukwu, the widow of former Biafra president, Chukwuemeka Ojukwu, has narrated an encounter with Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), in 2009.

The diplomat was reacting to the outburst by a popular cleric, Fr. Ejike Mbaka, who said the former Anambra State governor will never become the next President of Nigeria because he is “stingy”.

While speaking to members of his church on Wednesday, June 15, Mbaka said a stingy man cannot be Nigeria’s president because Nigerians are hungry and they need a generous man.

However, in a Facebook post titled ‘On Peter Obi’s supposed stinginess’ on Thursday, Bianca shared an encounter she had with Obi in 2009 while he was still Anambra’s governor.

Bianca revealed that during her encounter with Obi in 2009, he donated the balance of $3,800, which he could have spent on a suit for an international event, to charity.
