The All Progressives Congress candidate in the Ekiti State governorship election, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has won the poll held on Saturday. He won 12 out of the 16 local government areas of Ekiti State.

His closest challenger is the Peoples Democratic Party’s Kolapo Olushola who won in four local governments.

Fayemi polled 197,459 while Olusola scored 178,114 votes.

Mr Olusola is the incumbent deputy governor of the state and was hoping to succeed his boss, Ayodele Fayose, who had campaigned vigorously for him.

The results of the election mark a remarkable rebound for Mr Fayemi, who as the incumbent governor, was roundly defeated four years ago by Mr Fayose.

Though the election was generally peaceful across the state, there was large-scale vote-buying by supporters of both political parties. There were also few cases of ballot box snatching.

Mr Fayemi is now set to be declared winner of the election by the electoral commission, INEC.
