Ekiti: 2018 Official Result Fayemi Wins His `Polling Unit, PDP Wins Fayose’s Polling Unit


Kayode Fayemi, the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, has been declared winner in his polling unit of Isan Ward 11, Unit 9.
The results confirmed by the agents of the various political parties are:

APC- 186
PDP – 2
APA – 1
Unused papers – 145
Total registered voters – 345
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has emerged victorious in polling unit 001, Afao in Irepodun-Ifelodun Local Government Area.

The polling unit situated at St. David Primary School is the unit of outgoing governor, Ayodele Fayose.

Sorting of votes started at 2 p.m. and this was followed shortly by counting.

At the end of the exercise, the PDP polled 304 votes while APC had 106.

See total results below:

PDP - 304
AD – 1

ADP – 1

PDC – 1

Pandel — 1

APC – 106
The fact that over 100 people voted for APC in Fayose's ward says a lot about how much goodwill he has lost. Results coming in so far from all parts of Ekiti is really shocking to say the least. APC is currently leading in my hometown, Okemesi Ekiti, hitherto a PDP stronghold. Fayose had really squandered the goodwill he once enjoyed.
Former governor of Ekiti State and governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Kayode Fayemi, has voted in his ward at Ogilolo ward 11, unit 009 in Isan Ekiti, Oye Local Government Area of Ekiti State.
Fayemi voted around 10:45am in company of some of his aides and party supporters after being on the queue for a period of ten minutes.
The former minister described the process as credible and peaceful, saying the will of the people will prevail.
“Nigerians decided to chose democracy over dictatorship and that is why all of us must guard this democracy jealously”, he said.
He however, raised reservation about the news that the smart card readers were malfunctioning in some towns.
The incident was pronounced in Ayede Ekiti, where people complained that their fingerprints were not detected by the machine.
Speaking further, Fayemi said: “With the news we have been gathering around, the process has been okay for now. So, I have faith in this election and I know the people of Ekiti will judge me based on what I did when I presided over this state and what this government is doing.
They can see that the difference is clear”.
Also voting at his unit in Ayede Ekiti, Osinkolu ward 9, unit 002, a chieftain of the APC, Dr. Segun Osinkolu , praised the security agencies and INEC for doing a good job in the election.
Osinkolu said the security arrangements were organized in a decent manner, saying this will add to the credibility of the poll.

Ekiti election: I’ll win despite ‘votes buying’ by other candidates – Omoyeni
The governorship candidate of the Mega Party, Chief Bisi Omoyeni, has stated that although other political parties are allegedly buying votes, he will still win the election.
He alleged that some political parties had been buying votes by giving money to voters.
Omoyeni however told reporters that he will come out victorious because he was the best of all the candidates.
He said, “My expectation is that I will win this election. Ekiti people do not want those ones, they know them and they know I am the best.
“I learnt people have been distributing money to buy votes. INEC should not allow this, security agents should not allow this.
“If we allow this to continue. Then we may not have true democracy.”
