In a press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Petra Onyegbule, Governor Bello said described the emergence of Dr. Fayemi as a victory for democracy and a sign that the people of Ekiti State are ready to join the fold of the progressives.
Governor Bello noted that under President Muhammadu Buhari, elections continue to be free and fair, a pointer to what 2019 will bring.
“In a democracy, the wishes and desires of majority trump over those of the minority and only a true democrat like President Buhari would respect that time and time again,” he said.
While congratulating the people of the state for making the right choice, he praised them for their peaceful conduct during the elections.
He stated that he is confident that Fayemi’s victory will usher in a new era of development for Ekiti State.
He congratulated the All Progressives Congress (APC) for a well deserved victory in Ekiti State and expressed confidence that the feat will be replicated in Osun State.
