INEC Did An “Excellent Job” – Fayemi

Ekiti State Governor-elect, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on Wednesday commended INEC for doing what he described as an “excellent job” in the conduct of the governorship poll.

Fayemi said this in Ado-Ekiti shortly after he received the Certificate of Return as the governor-elect from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). The Deputy Governor-elect, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, also received his Certificate of Return at the ceremony.

He went on to assure the people of Ekiti that he would not disappoint them for giving him their mandate in Saturday’s governorship election.

The governor-elect also commended security agencies for their services during the exercise, saying that their presence gave the electorate confidence to come out and exercise their franchise.

He hailed the APC National Working Committee (NWC) led by the National Chairman, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole and the Executive Committee of the party in Ekiti led by the Chairman, Chief Olajide Awe.

He said: “For INEC, the work has just ended and for us, the work has just started. We have a responsibility not to disappoint our people. “Ekiti people will see the benefit of good governance by the grace of God as from Oct 16.”

The Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Prof. Abdul-Ganiyu Raji, expressed delight that the election was held in spite of the tension that preceded it.

Raji commended the people of the state for the maturity displayed before, during and after the election. According to him, Ekiti is moving higher with the outcome of the election.

In his remarks, Soyebi noted that the presentation of the Certificate of Return marked the end of the process of the governorship election in the state. Soyebi, who described Ekiti as a homogeneous state, urged the people to continue being their brother’s keeper.

He said: “Today marks the end of the election in Ekiti State on the part of the commission which is the presentation of Certificates of Return to the governor-elect and the deputy governor-elect.

“If there are issues arising from the election, there is another arm of government that will take care of that. This is another important day in the history of the state.

“On behalf of the commission, I congratulate everybody. Ekiti has pointed the way forward in conducting elections in Nigeria.”
