Buhari Lauds Ekiti Poll, Says APC Delivers Quality Governance

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the victory of Biodun Oyebanji in the just concluded governorship race in Ekiti State shows that Nigerians accept the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In the early hours of Sunday, Oyebanji was declared the winner of Saturday’s election, having pulled a total of 187,057 votes to defeat his two closest rivals – Segun Oni of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), who got 82, 211 and Bisi Kolawole of the People’s Democratic Party who polled67,457 votes.

Reacting to the win, President Buhari congratulated the governor-elect in a statement, pointing out that the victory is well deserved considering Oyebanji’s contributions to the development of the State and the party before he was nominated for the standard-bearer

Buhari further charged him to be magnanimous in victory in the interest of the people of the State.

The president also felicitated the APC chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, and the National Working Committee for the victory, which is the first under the tenure of the newly elected executives of the party.

“This is a good beginning for you and your 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,” the President said.

Buhari further called on all APC members home and abroad to see the result 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, July.

President Buhari also felicitated with the people of Ekiti State for the conduct of a fair poll affirming that they are the real victors for freely choosing their leader for the next four years.

He also extended his appreciation to the Independent National Electoral Commission and the law enforcement agencies for all their efforts, urging them to keep up the standard for upcoming elections.
