KOWA Party will put up a good showing in the forthcoming governorship elections in Ekiti and Osun states, its National Secretary, Mr Mark Adebayo, has said.

Adebayo told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on telephone on Thursday that several members of the party had shown interest in the two elections.

He said the best candidates would emerge through transparent primaries to be conducted in both states.

“We already have a few aspirants, but we hope that the winner of the primaries will do the party proud in the two states,” he said.

Adebayo said the level of transparency of the party is a reason why it should be given a chance in the two states.

“In KOWA Party, we will have a transparent and open primary. It’s going to be an open ballot system, no godfatherism or moneybags will be involved.

“We hope that the transparent emergence of our candidates will appeal to the majority of the electorates in those states, to count KOWA party worthy of a chance in the politics of the states,” he said.

NAN reports that the Independent  National Electoral Commission has fixed the Ekiti State governorship election for July 14, while that of Osun State holds  on Sept. 22.
