Ekiti State Governor-elect Dr Kayode Fayemi has promised not to disappoint the people who gave him the mandate in last Saturday’s election.
Fayemi spoke yesterday after he received the Certificate of Return as governor-elect from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The governor-elect said the people of Ekiti State will enjoy the benefits of good governance from October 16 when he takes over.
He hailed the electoral agency for doing what he called an “excellent job”.
Contrary to claims by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Fayemi affirmed the election, which returned him as winner, was “seamless, free, fair, credible and violence-free”.
There was massive security build-up on New Iyin Road and the vicinity of INEC office as people streaming to the place were frisked before they were allowed entry.
Security was provided by the Army, the police, and the Department of State Services (DSS).
A police helicopter hovered over the INEC office throughout the period of the ceremony.
