Buhari Congratulates Fayemi Over Governorship Election Victory


President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in the Ekiti State governorship election, Kayode Fayemi, for his victory at the poll.

Dr Fayemi had been declared the winner of the Ekiti Governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), earlier after he outpolled the Deputy Governor of the state, Professor Kolapo Olusola of the PDP, and others in the race to succeed Governor Ayodele Fayose.

President Buhari also praised INEC and security agencies for making adequate preparations, displaying impartiality and creating the right atmosphere for the relatively peaceful conduct of the polls.

The President urged the losers to be gallant in conceding defeat and use constitutional means to settle whatever grievances they might have rather than resort to self-help.
