Breaking: Fayemi Defeats PDP’s Eleka, Sweeps Ekiti Governorship Election
Dr. Kayode Fayemi of the ruling All Progressives Congress [APC], has won Saturday’s governorship election held in Ekiti State.
Although the electoral umpire, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is yet to officially declare Fayemi as Governor-Elect, but results announced so far by the electoral commission put Fayemi at a lead with over 13,000 votes.

From the results of the 16 local government areas in the state, Fayemi defeated his major challenger, Eleka in 12 LGAs.
