Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has reacted to Abiodun Oyebanji’s victory in the governorship election in Ekiti State.
News Report gathered that Oyebanji was the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the recently concluded election.
This online information leaned that with 187,057 votes, the former Secretary to the State Government (SSG) won 15 of the state’s 16 Local Government Areas.
The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Segun Oni came second with 82,211, while the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bisi Kolawole gathered 67,457 votes.
The returning officer for the election, Professor Kayode Oyebode at 3:04 am on Sunday declared Oyebanji the winner of the governorship election.
Reacting in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Sunday morning, Keyamo congratulated Oyebanji on this momentous feat as the governor-elect of Ekiti.
He, however, advised the APC to keep their feet firmly on the ground as there’s greater work ahead to win the Osun Governorship election and the 2023 Presidential election.
The minister also warned against complacency in the forthcoming elections.
He wrote: “Whilst this buoys our spirits in APC and I congratulate our own Biodun Oyebanji on this momentous feat, we must keep our feet firmly on the ground as there’s greater work ahead to win the Osun Governorship election & the 2023 Presidential elections. There should be no complacency.”
