This is according to Niger State Governor, Dr. Babangida Aliyu.

He said, “The election was free and fair, and it mirrors the true desire of the people to welcome back PDP rule in Ekiti. The Ekiti example should also serve as an agenda of what the opposition will face in the next general election”.

He said, “Let me congratulate Ayo Fayose for his well-deserved victory. From what observers said about the election, it was indeed free and fair”.

    Don’t push your luck too far. Fayose is a personality well loved by his people. Can you say same concerning GEJ, and even yourself? The intention of the central government is to set up violence in ekiti. But thanks to fayemi’s spirit of sportsmanship.
