Oyebanji, former secretary to the state government (SSG), was declared winner of the June 18 Ekiti governorship election on Sunday after winning 15 out of the 16 LGAs in the state.

He secured 187,057 votes, defeating his two closest challengers — Segun Oni of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) who polled 82,211 votes, and Bisi Kolawole of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who got 67,457 votes.

In a statement on Sunday, Buhari said Oyebanji’s victory is a well-deserved “considering his contributions to the development of Ekiti State and the APC, over the years”.

He said, “I urge him to be magnanimous in victory, in the interest of the people of Ekiti State. I equally rejoice with the APCN chairman, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu and the National Working Committee, on the victory, the first under the tenure of the newly elected executives of the party. This is a good beginning for the entire team.

“The APC is getting stronger and more united. The victory of our party in Ekiti is an indication of the confidence of Nigerians in the ability of our great party to deliver quality governance to all.

“All APC members across and outside the country should see this victory as a good omen for the 2023 general elections, and work assiduously to ensure the party’s victory, continuing the trend with Osun State next month.

“I congratulate the people of Ekiti State on the smooth conduct of the election; they are the real victors, having been able to freely choose their leader for the next four years.

“Commendation must also go to INEC and the law enforcement agencies for the extensive preparations put in place. This momentum must be maintained for all the upcoming elections.”

KanyiDaily recalls that the governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Kemi Elebute-Halle had alleged that other political parties are inducing voters with money in the Ekiti guber election.
