Dr. John Kayode Fayemi, winner of the governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti state has apologised to the people for all the errors of omission or commission he made during his first term as governor, between 2010 and 2014.
He made the plea in his speech after being declared winner of the hotly contested primary election, which featured 33 contestants, with one of them withdrawing on Thursday. Fayemi got 941 delegate votes, out of the 2,313 valid votes cast.
His nearest competitor was also a former governor, Segun Oni, who got 481 votes. Governor Tanko Al-Makura, who chaired the election committee announced the result after 11pm today in Ado-Ekiti and thanked all the delegates and contestants for their show of maturity, patience and perseverance. He reserved special praise for the security agents, who were able to maintain peace, unlike last week’s show that ended riotously.
