President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the All Progressives Congress’ Biodun Oyebanji’s victory in the Ekiti governorship election that took place yesterday, June 18.
Oyebanji defeated his two closest rivals, Segun Oni of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and Bisi Kolawole of the People’s Democratic Party, with a total of 187,057 votes.
Buhari congratulated Oyebanji on his victory, saying it demonstrates that the APC is well-liked by Nigerians and is well-deserved, given Oyebanji’s efforts to the development of the state and the party prior to his nomination as the standard-bearer.
The President who rejoiced with APC chairman, Abdulahi Adamu, and the National Working Committee for the victory, which is the first under the tenure of the newly elected executives of the party, urged Oyebanji to be magnanimous in victory in the interest of the people of the State.
The statement read;
“This is a good beginning for you and your team. The APC is getting stronger and more united. The victory of our party in Ekiti is an indication of the confidence of Nigerians in the ability of our great party to deliver quality governance to all.”
