The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Ekiti State governorship election, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has defeated the incumbent, Ayo Fayose, in the sitting governor’s local government area.
In what appeared to be poetic justice, Fayemi won in Irepodun-Ifelodun council, the home base of Fayose.
Fayemi polled 13,869 votes.
The Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Olusola Eleka, Fayose’s deputy, got 11,456 votes.
Fayemi, in the 2014 election that returned Fayose to the Ekiti State Government House, lost in the 16 local government areas of the state.
