Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has congratulated the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Ekiti State governorship election and the Governor-elect, Biodun Oyebanji, on his huge victory in the election held on Saturday.
In a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, the Governor said the wide margin of votes between the Ekiti governor-elect and his co-contestants, clearly demonstrates the trust and confidence of Nigerians across the country in the APC.
Ganduje, who congratulated the APC both at the state and national levels on the peaceful and successful conduct of the election, also commended the people of Ekiti State for making the right choice.
He added that the victory at the poll by the governor-elect clearly indicated that the outgoing governor, Kayode Fayemi, had performed well, which endeared the people of Ekiti State more to the ruling APC in the state.
He, therefore, urged the governor-elect to be benevolent in victory by carrying all the people in the state along for continued good governance.
The governor praised the Independent National Electoral Commission for a job well done and security agencies for ensuring a peaceful election in the state.
