President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the winner of Saturday’s Ekiti governorship election and flag bearer of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Biodun Oyebanji, for emerging victorious.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, Buhari said the victory is well deserved considering Oyebanji’s contributions to the development of the State and the party.
He urged him to be magnanimous in victory in the interest of the people of the State.
Buhari also rejoices with the APC chairman, Abdulahi Adamu, and the National Working Committee for the victory, the first under the tenure of the newly elected executives of the party.
“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,” the President said.
He charged all APC members across and outside the country to see this as a good omen for the 2023 general elections and work assiduously to ensure the party’s victory, continuing the trend with Osun State next month July.
Buhari also felicitates with the people of Ekiti State for the smooth conduct of the election, affirming hey are the real victors as they have been able to freely choose their leader for the next four years.
He lauded the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) and the law enforcement agencies for the preparations put in place, urging them to keep the momentum for forthcoming elections.
