The Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has reacted to the emergence of Abiodun Oyebanji as the winner of the governorship election in Ekiti State.
NgGossips.com reports that Oyebanji is the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just-concluded election.
The former Secretary to the State Government (SSG) won 15 out of the 16 Local Government Areas of the state gathering 187,057 votes.
The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Segun Oni came second with 82,211, while the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bisi Kolawole gathered 67,457 votes.
The returning officer for the election, Professor Kayode Oyebode at 3:04 am on Sunday declared Oyebanji the winner of the governorship election.
Reacting in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Sunday morning, Keyamo congratulated Oyebanji on this momentous feat as the governor-elect of Ekiti.
He, however, advised the APC to keep their feet firmly on the ground as there’s greater work ahead to win the Osun Governorship election and the 2023 Presidential election.
The minister also warned against complacency in the forthcoming elections.
He wrote: “Whilst this buoys our spirits in APC and I congratulate our own Biodun Oyebanji on this momentous feat, we must keep our feet firmly on the ground as there’s greater work ahead to win the Osun Governorship election & the 2023 Presidential elections. There should be no complacency.”
