#Ekitidecides : Buhari congratulates Fayemi, urges PDP, Fayose to concede defeat

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the July 14 governorship elections in Ekiti state, Dr. Koyade Fayemi who has been declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

In a series of tweets, the President said that the results reflect the wishes of the Ekiti people adding that the election was another victory for democracy.

While advising the winner to be magnanimous in victory, the President called on the People's Democratic Party, PDP and its candidate, Prof. Kolapo Olusola as well as Governor Ayodele Fayose to be gallant in conceding defeat.

He said that "Ekiti State has decided. I congratulate Dr. John Kayode Fayemi on winning the governorship election. Commendation also goes to our great party, the APC, for the hard-fought victory after a dignified campaign.

I urge Governor-Elect Fayemi and APC members to be magnanimous in victory as the incoming administration prepares to unfold a new lease of life for the people of Ekiti State through purposeful and responsible governance.

Let me also commend the people of Ekiti State for their mature and peaceful conduct; INEC for adequate preparations and impartiality; the security agencies for staying on top of the security situation; and all local and international observers and monitors for their vigilance.

I urge the losers to be gallant in conceding defeat and to use constitutional means to settle whatever grievances they may have, instead of resorting to self-help.

And all stakeholders in Ekiti State must work towards a successful transition to the new administration.

In all this, the people of Ekiti State have spoken loud and clear, and democracy has won again".
President Muhammadu Buhari 5844391797261294510
