Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has said that the victory of the Ekiti State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abiodun Abayomi Oyebanji, at the Saturday guber election in the state was a true reflection of the people’s wishes and aspirations.
Oyetola said he was confident that the governor-elect would reciprocate the Ekiti electorate gesture by delivering quality governance and numerous dividends of democracy to the people of the state.
In a congratulatory message by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, the governor felicitated with the governor-elect and the incumbent governor of the state, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu, leaders and supporters of the party on the “well-deserved and sweet electoral victory.”
Oyetola equally hailed President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Leader and the flag bearer of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for their support and contributions to the triumph of the party and its candidate in the just concluded election.
Also rejoicing with the people of Ekiti State for keeping faith with the APC by voting en masse for its candidate, Oyetola said: “On behalf of my family, government and the good people of Osun, I congratulate the governor-elect of Ekiti State, Abiodun Abayomi Oyebanji, on his victory at the governorship election held yesterday (Saturday). I also congratulate Governor Kayode Fayemi, the National chairman of our great party, the APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, leaders and supporters of the party on this well-deserved and sweet electoral victory.
“With his antecedents and varied leadership experiences, Mr Biodun Oyebanji is no doubt a worthy successor to Governor Fayemi. I am confident that he will not disappoint the people of Ekiti.”
The governor also lauded the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), for enhancing the credibility of the electoral process, the security agencies, political parties, and their candidates, and the people of Ekiti for the peaceful and successful conduct of the election.
