As reactions continue to trail the just concluded governorship election in Ekiti State, the Good Governance Ambassadors of Nigeria, GOGAN, has described the outcome of the contest as an indication that Nigerians still love Buhari and would queue behind him in 2019.
The group said the victory of Fayemi Kayode of the All Progressives Congress, APC, at the poll showed that 2019 would favour the ruling party.
Fayemi floored his closest rival, Olusola Kolapo to win the keenly contested Guber election after polling 197,459 while the latter garnered 178,114 votes.
GOGAN described the victory as a triumph of the people’s will against propaganda and blackmail.
In a statement issued in Abuja, GOGAN Chairman/CEO, Chief Felix Idiga says the victory was a manifestation of the positive impact of the President Buhari-led administration at the grassroots.
Idiga noted that, the victory in Ekiti was a signal of President Buhari’s triumph in the 2019 general elections.
His words, “This is a sign that President Buhari is loved by Nigerians, he will win the 2019 Presidential elections with a landslide victory because the common Nigerians are fully with him”.
“Look at the result from the Ekiti governorship election, amidst all the drama, the APC cruise to victory, it is a sign of President Buhari’s victory.
“I enjoin all Nigerians to continue to keep faith with President Muhammad Buhari GCFR and his administration.”
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Dr Kayode Fayemi on his victory at the Ekiti State governorship election.
Reacting, Buhari in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Femi Adesina, commended INEC and all security agencies for a free and fair election.
