0

Dr Kayode Fayemi, candidate of the All Progressives Congress,in the Ekiti governorship election, is coasting home to victory, according to the results declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission in majority of the 16 local councils in the state.

Fayemi, who was governor of the state between 2010 and 2014, has won no fewer than 12 of the 16 councils, including the council of incumbent Ayodele Fayose.

In what appeared to be poetic justice, Fayemi won in Irepodun-Ifelodun council, the home base of Fayose.

Fayemi polled 13,869 votes. The PDP candidate, Olusola Eleka, Fayose’s deputy got 11,456 votes.

In the 2014 election, massively rigged by Fayose’s PDP, Fayemi lost all the Ekiti councils to Fayose.

This time around, Fayemi only lost in Fayose’s polling unit and ward.

However, the votes in other wards were not enough to secure victory for Fayose’s party and candidate in the local government.
