Ekiti election: APC candidate, Fayemi speaks on victory

The governor-elect of Ekiti, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has described his victory in Saturday’s governorship election as one “for reclaiming the land and restoring Ekiti values”.

DAILY POST reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday declared the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate winner.

He garnered 197,459 votes while the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Kolapo Olusola polled 178,114 votes.

Fayemi told newsmen in Isan-Ekiti that “the victory of this election, I believe, is for reclaiming the land and restoring the values of our people.”

“Our values in Ekiti are respect for our leaders, commitment to our people, non brigandage and so on.

”This victory is a victory for all, it is not a victory for only Kayode Fayemi, it is a victory for all the Ekiti people.

“This was just not an Ekiti election, I want people to understand that this election has a lot of significance to the future of democracy in Nigeria.

“The fact that we have witnessed a free, fair and transparent election process has huge importance for similar exercises like Osun State next door to us and eventually the national elections in February 2019,” he said.
