Ekiti Guber Poll: Oyebanji reacts to alleged vote-buying by APC

Abiodun Oyebanji wins Ekiti Guber poll

The governor-elect of Ekiti State, Biodun Oyebanji, has reacted to the allegation of vote-buying by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Saturday’s governorship election in the state.

Oyebanji stated that neither he nor the APC was involved in vote-buying as alleged.

KEMI FILANI NEWS recalls that Oyebanji emerged winner after he polled 187,057 votes to defeat his closest rival, Segun Oni of the Social Democratic Party, who polled 82,211 votes, while Bisi Kolawole of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) got 67,457 votes.

According to him, they canvassed for votes from the electorate, which led to their victory at the poll.

He stated this on Monday while briefing State House correspondents shortly after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The governor-elect insisted that he did not witness any vote-buying in the polling unit where he voted, adding that he won the poll based on his last performance as the Secretary to the State Government (SSG).
