#EkitiDecides2018: How the election was won and lost [FULL RESULTS]

Kayode Fayemi, the candidate of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), has won the Ekiti governorship election.

He won in 12 out of the 16 local government areas of Ekiti State.

His closest challenger is the Peoples Democratic Party’s Kolapo Olushola who won in four local governments.

Olusola is the incumbent deputy governor of the state and was hoping to succeed his boss, Ayodele Fayose, who had campaigned vigorously for him.

Fayemi had been defeated as the incumbent governor four years ago by Governor Fayose.

Though the election was generally peaceful across the state, there was large-scale vote-buying by supporters of both political parties. There were also few cases of ballot box snatching.

Fayemi is now set to be declared winner of the election by the elecotral commission, INEC.

The results of the 16 local governments have been officially announced by INEC, which is however, still doing the final collation.
