How Oyebanji beat them all: Ekiti poll results at a glance

Biodun Oyebanji

Gov. Biodun Oyebanji

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress Biodun Oyebanji has built up an unassailable lead as results from 15 out of the 16 local governments in Ekiti became available on Saturday night.

Oyebanji was leading the other candidates by a wide margin and it will take a miracle to stop him from being elected as successor to Governor Kayode Fayemi in October.

So far, Oyebanji has won 14 of the 15 councils declared.

He lost Efon Alaye, the home council of PDP candidate, Bisi Kolawole by 4,012 votes to Kolawole’s 6,303 votes.

In contrast, Oyebanji narrowly won Ido-Osi Local government, the base of SDP candidate, Engineer Olusegun Oni.

He won the remaining 13 councils emphatically.

In all, Oyebanji has polled 174,958 votes, more than the combined votes of his two major rivals, Oni and Kolawole.

Oni is second with 77,229 votes while the PDP candidate is third with 66,227 votes.

All the figures are for now unofficial, until certified by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)
