    Ekiti election: Oshiomhole speaks on Fayemi, APC victory

    All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole has spoken on the emergence of Kayode Fayemi as Governor-elect of Ekiti.

    He spoke to newsmen after a closed-door meeting with members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) in Abuja.

    Oshiomhole said the APC was excited not because it won the election, but particularly with the process.

    “We just want to make sure that the results of the election reflect the will of the people.

    “You will also recall that there were issues about police deployment.

    “I am very happy that all the commentators and observes including the Europain Union are happy that the election was free of violence and that the process was free and fair.

    “We cannot ask for more, we celebrate not just the fact that we won, we celebrate that under President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, we now can see that election can be conducted without people being hospitalised,” he said.

    He noted that the party was very proud of its accomplishment at the election.

    The former Edo Governor added that Ekiti people could not afford to wait any longer to see a renewed and refocused leadership that would ensure the quality of life of the people.

    He further added that the party’s leadership had appealed to Fayemi to see the wisdom to carry along various shades of opinion and also to reach out to the opposition.

    “In fact, democracy works well regardless of who wins. If the winner governs well for the benefit of all, indeed, the people can never lose in a democracy.

    “And we trust that Fayemi will do all that, including addressing the huge liability,” the APC National Chairman stressed.
