Ekiti Election: Fayemi, Eleka, and a list of other candidates contesting for Governor.

There are dozens more candidates contesting in Saturday's election outside of the biggest two contenders.

The July 14 Ekiti State gubernatorial election has been made about just two men alone, and one of them is not even on the ballot.

For weeks, Dr Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives' Congress (APC) has been engaged in a bitter war of words with Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, who defeated him in the 2014 election.

Sometimes, you could be forgiven for forgetting that Prof. Kolapo Olusola, aka Eleka, is the candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) and not Fayose who is at the end of his second term as the leader of the southwestern state.

Saturday's election has been widely framed as a straight contest between Fayemi, a former governor of the state, and Eleka, Fayose's deputy for the past four years.

However, there are 37 other known candidates who have been shorn of the limelights but are also vying for the coveted spot of state governor when voters go to the polls tomorrow.
