President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Biodun Oyebanji of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for his electoral victory in Saturday’s Ekiti State governorship election.
His felicitations are contained in a statement issued on Sunday by his spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina.
According to the President, the victory is well deserved considering Oyebanji’s contributions to the development of the state and the party, before his nomination as the standard-bearer.
He urged Oyebanji to be magnanimous in victory in the interest of the people of the state.
Buhari also rejoiced with the APC Chairman, Sen.Abdulahi Adamu, and the National Working Committee for the victory, the first under the tenure of the newly elected executives of the party.
“This is a good beginning for you and your team. The APC is getting stronger and more united.
”The victory of our party in Ekiti is an indication of the confidence of Nigerians in the ability of our great party to deliver quality governance to all,” said the president.
Thereafter, he charged all APC members across and outside the country to see this as a good omen for the 2023 general elections and work assiduously to ensure the party’s victory.
Oyebanji polled 187, 057 votes to win the election and was declared the winner by Prof. Oyebode Adebowale, the INEC Returning Officer for the Ekiti State Governorship election.
