Ekiti Governorship Election 2018
July 14, 2018, Ekiti governorship poll was on Monday, November 26, described by the campaign organisation of Governor Kayode Fayemi as the best election ever conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Three Christian politicians, ProfJerry Gana, Prof Remi Sonaiya and Senator Tunde Ogbeha, have blamed the challenges in Nigeria on bad leadership. They also attributed the challenges to the failure of the church to play.
Fresh allegations have emerged that there is a looming clash between the immediate past governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, and the national chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, ahead of 2019 general election in the state.
A deputy director with the Independent National Electoral Commission, Sylvester Aigbogun, on Tuesday, November 6, told the Ekiti governorship election petition tribunal in the FCT High Court, Apo, that the poll was free and fair.
Four Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) witnesses on Monday, November 5, told the Ekiti State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal that the electoral umpire did nothing to favour the APC and Fayemi.
The party's spokesman reiterated the PDP's National Working Committee confidence in the Gboyega Oguntuase-led exco in the state, adding that, “our members in the state must avoid anyone fanning embers of discord in our fold.”
