Ekiti election: APC was lucky, things getting better – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said the All Progressives Congress, APC, was lucky during the governorship election in Ekiti State.

Buhari, who spoke while hosting the Ekiti State Governor-Elect, Biodun Oyebanji, said the outcome of the election showed that things are now getting better.

The president received Oyebanji at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, NAN reports.

Oyebanji was led by Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, Governors Kayode Fayemi, Atiku Bagudu, Mohammed Badaru of Ekiti, Kebbi and Jigawa, respectively.

The president expressed his pleasure over the orderly conduct and the way the electorate and security agencies comported themselves.

He said: “I loved how the APC Governors mobilized, and supported you,” the president told Oyebanji.

“I think the party is very lucky, and things are getting better. I congratulate the Chairman, and I pray you sustain it.”

In his capacity as Chairman of the Campaign Council for Ekiti, Badaru congratulated the president on the successful outing.

He said, “Your unending effort to reposition the party is paying off. If we combine the votes of the candidates that came second and third, our candidate still beat them by a wide margin.

”APC is being daily endeared to Nigerians. Our gratitude goes to you, Mr President.”
