INEC issues Fayemi certificate of return as Ekiti Governor

The Ekiti State governor-elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi has promised not to disappoint the people of the state who gave him the mandate in last Saturday governorship election.

Fayemi gave this assurance on Wednesday shortly after he was presented with the Certificate of Return as the governor-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

National Commissioner in charge of Oyo, Ekiti and Osun states, Prince Adedeji Soyebi, presented Fayemi with the Certificate of Return at a ceremony held at state INEC office in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.

Deputy governor-elect, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi also received his Certificate of Return at the event.

Speaking after he was presented with the certificate, Fayemi said the people of Ekiti state will enjoy the benefit of good governance as from October 16 when he takes over the reins of power.

The governor-elect commended the electoral body for doing what he described as an “excellent job” in conducting the governorship poll.

Contrary to the claim of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Fayemi maintained that the election which returned him as winner was “seamless, free, fair, credible and violence-free.”

The governor-elect noted that INEC should be commended for conducting a process of 14 steps which climaxed with the presentation of the Certificate of Return.

Fayemi stressed that INEC did a good job in delivering the election in a credible and professional manner despite fears being expressed in the build-up to the poll.

He also commended the security agencies for providing security back-up which gave the electorate confidence to come out and exercise their franchise.

Fayemi hailed the APC National Working Committee (NWC) led by the National Chairman, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole and the State Executive Committee led by the State 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 October 16.”
