President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Ekiti gubernatorial election, Kayode Fayemi for his victory at the July 14 polls.

In a statement by Femi Adesina who is the special adviser to the president on media and publicity on Sunday, July 15, the president described it as a victory for democracy.

He thanked the APC for its effort in winning the Ekiti election and said the people have spoken loud and clear.

Read the statement below:

President Muhammadu Buhari heartily congratulates Dr. John Kayode Fayemi on winning the Ekiti State governorship election.

The President commends the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate and all party supporters for the hard-fought victory after a dignified campaign.

President Buhari urges the governor-elect and APC members to be magnanimous in victory as the incoming administration prepares to unfold a new lease of life for the people of Ekiti State through purposeful and responsible governance

He commends the people of the State for their matured and peaceful conduct as they made their choice using the power of the ballot.

President Buhari also lauds the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for adequate preparations and displaying impartiality throughout the process.

He applauds the security agencies for creating the right atmosphere for the relatively peaceful conduct of the polls and urges them to sustain the peace.

He also commends local and international observers and monitors for their vigilance and contributions towards the relatively hitch-free exercise.

The President urges the losers to be gallant in conceding defeat and use constitutional means to settle whatever grievances they may have rather than resort to self-help.

President Buhari appeals to all stakeholders in Ekiti State to work towards a successful transition to a new administration in the higher interest of not only the State but the entire nation and its fledgling democratic experience.

“In all this, the people of Ekiti State have spoken loud and clear, and democracy has won again,”
the President notes.

Fayemi, from the result collated at the local governments, has won in Ilejemeje (4153 to 3937), Moba (11837 to 8520), Irepodun-Ifelodun (13,869 to 11,456), Oye (14,995 to 11,271), Ido-Osi (12,342 to 11,145), Ijero (14,192 to 11,077) and Gbonyin (11,498 to 8,027).
