Governor Ayodele Fayose has said the outcome of Saturday’s presidential and national assembly election has signaled the end of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State.
The Peoples Democratic Party won all the three senatorial districts and the six House of Representatives seats in the state. Its presidential candidate, Goodluck Jonathan, also won majority of the votes cast in the state.
Fayose, who spoke through his Special Assistant on Information, Youth and Sports, Mr. Lanre Ogunsuyi, in Ado Ekiti, the state capital on Monday, said the election results proved that his victory in the June 21 governorship election was not rigged as claimed by the APC.
“It is now confirmed to whoever is still doubting whether Fayose is indeed a super political champion that the man is more than that, he is also a rare breed.
“In the same token, the outcome of Saturday’s National Assembly election, which made the PDP candidates to defeat all the candidates of APC in both the Senate and House of Representatives, including all the incumbents, shows that all negative claims about June 21, 2014 governorship poll, existed only in the imagination of those that faulted the outcome”, he said.
The aide further boasted that the PDP would repeat the same feat on April 11 in the State House of Assembly election.
“We don’t want a type of State Assembly that will be antagonistic of the governor and cause distractions for him.
“We already have problems with the current Assembly, and we do not want a repeat of that. We also do not want a 13-13 scenario as we were all living witnesses to its attendant negative effects in the past”, he added.
Thanking the people for their support to Fayose, Ogunsuyi assured that the governor would justify the confidence reposed in him by bringing unprecedented dividends of democracy to the citizens.
