Fayemi Pledges Smooth Transition As Fayose Visits Out-Going Governor


The outgoing Governor of Ekiti, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has pledged to work out a plan for a smooth transition of power to the Governor-elect,  Mr. Ayodele Fayose.

The Governor who spoke during a courtesy visit to his office on Monday by the latter, said with the result of the election, the people of Ekiti have spoken and he did not have choice than to respect and bow to the wish of the people.

Fayemi reiterated that his administration has done creditably well and has set a standard for incoming administrations to follow, describing Ekiti as a peaceful and “homogenous” entity where everyone must work for the peace and collective good of the people.

Fayose in his response to the out-going Governor’s speech pointed out that four years was a very short time in the life of an administration.

Fayose who was a governor in the state between 2003 to 2007, said the reason for his visit was to express his resolve to work with his co-contestants to ensure that peace reign in the state.

According to him, there was no winner, nor loser in the just concluded gubernatorial election in which he polled over 200,000 votes on Saturday, June 21 across the 16 local councils of the state.
