London, July 15, 2018 (AltAfrica)-President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has congratulated the Governor-elect of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on his victory in the just-concluded Ekiti gubernatorial election.
Saraki, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, stated that the Governor-elect of Ekiti State should use his second-coming to continue the people-centred policies and programmes of his first term.
But the main opposition the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) whose candidate lost the election has rejected the result of yesterday’s governorship election in Ekiti State, with a promise to challenge it in court.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), had declared candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Kayode Fayemi as winner of the election.
