ONE of the Ekiti State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial aspirants, Dr. Peter Obafemi has christened his new baby. The latest arrival was named David Olamiposi Obafemi at a low key ceremony in Lagos on Sunday, October 6, 2013.
The promoter of now rested Ritetime/World Airways was blessed with a baby boy on Sunday, September 29, 2013. His new wife, Lolade Iruka reportedly gave birth to the tot at Faith City Hospital, Oju Olobun Street, Victoria Island, Lagos. Efforts made to get more details from the businessman-turned-politician were not successful as our text message to him on the new arrival was not replied till press time. But we gathered from a source close to him that the newly delivered mother, Lolade is Dr. Obafemi’s new wife after he had divorced his former wife, Maureen, a U.S-based lady few years ago.
Our source also revealed that the guber aspirant is at the moment busy campaigning for the coming election in Ekiti State. Dr. Peter Obafemi is aspiring to succeed the incumbent governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, and since he is contesting on PDP platform, he will have to battle for the party’s ticket with former Ekiti State governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose and Minister of Police Affairs, Mr. Caleb Olubolade, both also jostling for PDP ticket.
