I join millions of Nigerians in the country and beyond to congratulate the Ekiti State Governor-elect, Dr. John Kayode Fayemi on his victory at the gubernatorial poll in Ekiti State.
I also commend the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for ensuring that the wishes of Ekiti people prevailed in our collective commitment to consolidate on the gains of our fledging democracy.
The Ekiti gubernatorial election result is a reflection of the many successes that await the All Progressives Congress (APC) in future elections and validates our growing popularity as a party as we strive to meet the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians and friends of our dear country.
The latest political development in Ekiti State, opens a new vista of opportunities for the good people of Ekiti State, who have joined the list of progressives in the country.
The Governor-elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi is a global personality of note, with demonstrable competence for good and purposeful governance, at the state and federal levels, and his second coming will elevate Ekiti State to the height that befits the men and women of honour in Ekiti State, celebrated for their high premium on education.
I salute the courage and sacrifices of the electorates, local and international election monitors and observers, the media, security agencies and members of our great party, the APC, for their insistence on a free and fair election.
Congratulations Dr. Kayode Fayemi and the good people of Ekiti State.
Governor, Edo State.
