    Congratulations to Gov. Fayose. He must have done a lot for his people in the past, and now his people have remembered and voted for him as reported. This is instructive to ALL seekers of public office and even present occupiers. Do a good job for your people, take care of the masses, and at a time like this, you will be exalted. You will be exhausted trying to enter, if you do otherwise, as some have already found out.

    Ekiti people voted against d perceived Tinubi imperialism and privatisation of d APC. Its a pointer to 2015 and d total rejection of d planned hausa fulani annexation pf Nigeria. With nothing to offer beyond power to the north ,the APC has started her losing streak.

    PEE DEE PEE! POWER!!! It is only time that will tell for how long a man can hide behind a finger. The executive terrorism, intimidation and overruns that preceded the Ekiti election just paved way for the incumbent to be eased out with ease. The Governors and other personalities that were barred from entering Ekiti at the peak of Fayemi’s campaign would have made an impact, but since the Federal Might decided to keep them in the cooler and treat them like miscreants, the ‘majority’ would certainly have its way. I appreciate the understanding, sportsmanship and maturity exhibited by the former Governor FAyemi by accepting the INEC’s verdict and extended congratulatory message to the ‘winner’ I just hope that Gov. Fayose would convert the gain of his electoral loots to better the lots of the Ekiti people by working for them and for the ruling party. Congratulations, all the same.
