Lanre Ogunsuyi, the special assistant to the governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, on information, youth and sports, has reacted to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) victory in the state.
According to him, the PDP’s victory in Saturday’s presidential election in Ekiti state signaled the end of the opposition, the All Progressives Congress (APC), The Punch reports.
The PDP won all the three senatorial districts and the six House of Representatives seats in the state.
Speaking in Ado Ekiti, the state capital on Monday, March 31, Ogunsuyi said the election results proved that the June 21 governorship election won by Fayose was not rigged as claimed.
“It is now confirmed to whoever is still doubting whether Fayose is indeed a super political champion that the man is more than that, he is also a rare breed.
“In the same token, the outcome of Saturday’s National Assembly election, which made the PDP candidates to defeat all the candidates of APC in both the Senate and House of Representatives, including all the incumbents, shows that all negative claims about June 21, 2014 governorship poll, existed only in the imagination of those that faulted the outcome,” he said.
Fayose’s aide expressed optimism that the PDP will also be victorious in the State House of Assembly election which is scheduled for April 11.
He thanked the people for showing support to Fayose, while assuring them that the governor would justify the confidence reposed in him by bringing unprecedented dividends of democracy to the citizens.
