Fayose dedicates victory to Ekiti people

Ado-Ekiti – The governor-elect of  Ekiti, Mr Ayo Fayose, on Sunday  dedicated his victory to the people of the state.

Fayose said in Ado-Ekiti  that  his victory reflected the wishes  of the people of the state.

The governor-elect, who spoke through his Chief Press Officer, Mr Idowu Adelusi, described the election that produced him as free, fair and credible.

He promised to improve the living standard of the people by providing job opportunities and making education affordable.

Also reacting, the Labour Party candidate, Mr Opeyemi Bamidele, said, “I am not desperate to be governor.’’

Bamidele, however, said that he remained a credible alternative for the position of governor in the state.

Asked whether he regretted not collaborating with Fayose in prosecuting the election, Bamidele said he turned down the request because he still had the ambition of becoming the governor of the state. 

The Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Kayode Fayemi, Mr Yinka Oyebode, however, said that his boss would react to the outcome of the election at the appropriate time. (NAN)
