Ekiti 2022: Be Magnanimous In Victory, APC UK Charges Oyebanji


The All Progressives Congress, United Kingdom has congratulated the Governor-elect of Ekiti State, His Excellency Abiodun Abayomi Oyebanji on his victory in the just-concluded election in the state urging him to be magnanimous in victory.

The chapter said this in a statement issued by Mr Jacob Ogunseye, its Publicity Secretary on Sunday in Abuja while congratulating Oyebanji who was the APC candidate at the election for emerging victorious.

The APC UK charged those who contested the election with Oyebanji to join hands with him for the progress and development of Ekiti State.

It also urged other contestants at the election to be gracious in defeat, stressing that in every contest; a winner must emerge and should be supported by others in the spirit of good sportsmanship.

“Others who contested the election with Oyebanji should put the past behind and work with him for the progress of the state as he continues with the progressive agenda of taking the state to the next level of prosperity.

“We want to appeal to the opposition contestants that the election of Abayomi Oyebanji is for the state and not just for a political party,” the APC UK said.

It, however, charged the Governor-elect to be magnanimous in victory and work harder in consolidating the good works that the outgoing governor, His Excellency Governor Kayode Fayemi had started in the state.

The chapter congratulated the people of Ekiti state for their wise decision in trusting the All Progressives Congress APC to continue providing and solidifying its giant strides in the state.

The statement added that Prince Ade Omole, the leader of APC UK attributed APC’s success at the election to the robust approach provided by the party to solve the problems in the state.

“I knew Ekiti indigenes would renew the mandate of APC. No one would vote out a performing party like APC.

“Gov. Fayemi’s achievements in the areas of industrialisation, infrastructural and human capital development have formed a solid base from which others should emulate. It is time to consolidate on the gains we have made so far, the statement added.
