Bukola Saraki Congratulates Fayose, INEC
I congratulate Governor-Elect Mr Ayo Fayose for his doggedness and his closeness to the grassroots which spans over the years and has been attributed to his win.
I equally congratulate Governor Fayemi; who took the path of honour by conceding defeat and congratulating Governor Fayose on his success. With this show of sportsmanship, it is my believe that other politicians will respect the wish of the electorates and do the same in future elections devoid of violence and political bickering as demonstrated by the peace loving people of Ekiti.
I will also like to congratulate the electoral agency INEC as it appears the body has shown remarkable improvement, this should also serve as a reminder to every politician in other parts of the country especially Kwara that this is clear indication Nigerians now know how to differentiate a grass root politicians from a seasonal politicians.
I urge the Governor elect to see this victory as an endorsement on the expectations of Ekiti people for continued dedication to governance and a means for a focused purposeful leadership.
It is important that around the clock people want to be engaged. This should also serve as a lesson to Mr President that as an incumbent it is very possible to lose in Nigeria. If he fails to do the will of the people.
Once again, I Congratulate Governor Fayemi for the great work he has done, to me this is not a defeat to him, but a win for democracy.
He has given his best to his state and as a good Nigerian despite the party difference I am certain he will continue to give his support to his people and to the country at large
