Former Governor of Ekiti State, Peter Ayodele Fayose has been mocked over the loss of the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bisi Kolawole, in the Ekiti Governorship election.

In the early hours of Sunday, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Abiodun Oyebanji the winner of the governorship election in Ekiti State.

Oyebanji, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the election, who won 15 out of the 16 Local Government Areas of the state gathered 187,057 votes.

The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party, Segun Oni came second with 82,211, while the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Bisi Kolawole gathered 67,457 votes.

A total of 16 candidates took part in the election. The total valid votes in the election were 351,865, void votes, 8,888 and total votes cast, 360,753.

Recall that Fayose had anointed Kolawole as the PDP candidate in the election and worked towards his emergence as the party’s governorship candidate in the primary election that took place in April.

Oyebanji’s emergence as the new governor-elect has, however, generated a barrage of reactions on social media as netizens mocked Fayose for failing to work for the victory of his anointed candidate.
