Ayo Fayose (Oshokomole, Ekun-Oko Ekiti, Jogunomi 1 of Ekiti).
Ayo Fayose (Oshokomole, Ekun-Oko Ekiti, Jogunomi 1 of Ekiti).

The Ekiti guber polls seem to have reversed predictions by Nigeria’s foremost opposition party, All Progressive Congress (APC) as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) coasts home victory for former governor, Ayo Fayose (Oshokomole, Ekun-Oko Ekiti, Jogunomi 1 of Ekiti).

From the results received in the governorship elections in Ekiti, it is apparent that PDP’s Ayo Fayose is now the governor-elect of Ekiti state.

APC’s Kayode Fayemi who is the incumbent governor was widely expected to coast to an easy victory based on his performance in the past four years but Fayose who is a former governor of the state still remains hugely popular in the state.

Polls results being announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ad hoc officials at the various polling units and wards across the 16 local government areas of Ekiti state have put the PDP governorship candidate, Ayo Fayose in a comfortable early lead position.

Reports reaching Blank NEWS Online revealed that Fayose has been on the lead in 12 out of the 16 local government areas of the state.

Results already announced at the polling units and wards across the state put Fayose far ahead of the incumbent Governor Kayode Fayemi. Some of the election results as reproduced below are however not official yet until INEC formally announces the result.
