Minister of Solid Minerals and former Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, has reportedly won the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election in Ekiti.

He secured the most votes in the rescheduled exercise held on Saturday.

Although the counting is still ongoing, TheCable reported that Fayemi has secured 941 votes, which puts him miles ahead of other aspirants.

Governor of Nasarawa State and Chairman of the committee overseeing the electoral process, Tanko Al-Makura, had confirmed that 2, 327 delegates were accredited for the exercise which took place at Damlek Event Centre, Ado-Ekiti.

The aspirants who came closest to Fayemi are Kayode Ojo (281), Olufemi Richard Bamisile (179), Oluyede Oluwole (121), and Aluko Daniel Olugbenga (86).

Adekunle Patrick was the only aspirant without a vote while Ajayi Adebowale Oluranti and Elizabeth Taiye had one each. Coker Olumuyiwa and Ayodele Arise secured two votes apiece.

Despite withdrawing from the race, Babafemi Ojudu still managed to get 10 votes.

The election was disrupted last Saturday when some agents alleged that the exercise was fraudulent.

The winner, Fayemi, is from Isan-Ekiti in Oye-Ekiti local government area of the state.
