Afe polled a total of 93 votes to defeat his rival, Mr. Kazeem Sanusi, who got seven votes in the primary election.

In his acceptance speech, Afe said the ultimate aim of the party is to rescue the state from destroyers.

“People are tired of both the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC), so the money they were relying on will fail them in this election.

“In our party, we believe in selfless service, and that was why you didn’t see us spend money for this primary.

Money didn’t exchange hands, and that was part of our rebranding policies. “Ekiti has been bastardised by both the PDP and APC and time to try alternative and credible platform is now for our people to be fully liberated from the claws of holocausts,” Afe said.

Earlier while announcing the election results, the Returning Officer, Mr. Ebere Okonkwo, said the transparency of the election demonstrated the party’s commitment to rebrand the nation and rid the citizens of corrupt tendencies.
