The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated its candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi, on his election as the Governor of Ekiti State.
The APC, in a statement yesterday through its National Publicity Secretary, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, said that Fayemi ran an effective and positive campaign focused on his agenda of rebuilding the economy of the state and returning its lost values of integrity, prudence and decency.
The party hailed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), security agencies, local and international observers, as well as other stakeholders, for making the Ekiti gubernatorial election one in which the people’s will prevailed.
“We thank the Ekiti electorate for voting en masse for our party’s candidate. This is a demonstration of their trust and confidence in Dr Fayemi’s ability to deliver on his campaign promises and a rejection of the crude and pedestrian politics of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“We assure the people of Ekiti, and indeed all Nigerians, that our party is best placed to move the country forward and resolve the seemingly intractable problems that have held us back,” the statement further read.
