The governor-elect of Ekiti, Mr. Ayo Fayose, on Sunday dedicated his victory to the people of the state.
Fayose told the News Agency of Nigeria in Ado-Ekiti that his victory reflected the wishes of the people of the state.
The governor-elect, who spoke through his Chief Press Officer, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, described the election that produced him as free, fair and credible.
He promised to improve the living standard of the people by providing job opportunities and making education affordable.
Also reacting, the Labour Party candidate, Mr. Opeyemi Bamidele, said, “I am not desperate to be governor’’.
Bamidele, however, said that he remained a credible alternative for the position of governor in the state.
Asked whether he regretted not collaborating with Fayose in prosecuting the election, Bamidele said he turned down the request because he still had the ambition of becoming the governor of the state.
The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Kayode Fayemi, Mr. Yinka Oyebode, however, told NAN that his boss would react to the outcome of the election at the appropriate time.
