#EkitiDecides2018: Read Fayemi's First Statement After Victory
The governor-elect of Ekiti, Dr Kayode Fayemi, is a happy man because he believes he has reclaimed Ekiti land to restore its values.
This is what his victory in Saturday’s governorship election means to him.
Fayemi spoke on Sunday while addressing newsmen in Isan-Ekiti shortly after he was declared the winner of the governorship election.
He said: “The victory of this election, I believe, is for reclaiming the land and restoring the values of our people.
“Our values in Ekiti are respect for our leaders, commitment
to our people, non-brigandage, non-criminality and so on.
“This victory is a victory for all, it is not a victory for only Gov. Kayode Fayemi, it is a victory for all the Ekiti people.”
The PDP has rejected the supposed victory of Fayemi, arguing that the election was rigged but the APC man described it as a free and fair election.
“This was just not an Ekiti election. I want people to understand that this election has a lot of significance to the future of democracy in Nigeria.
“The fact that we have witnessed a free, fair and transparent election process has huge importance for similar exercises like Osun State next door to us and eventually the national elections in February 2019,” he said.
