The Ekiti State Governor-elect, Biodun Oyebanji, on Monday in Abuja, has denied allegations of vote-buying at the Saturday governorship election.


Oyebanji, who garnered 187,057 votes to defeat his two closest challengers, Segun Oni of the Social Democratic Party and Bisi Kolawole of the Peoples Democratic Party, said this to State House correspondents when he visited the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the Presidential Villa on Monday.

The former Secretary to the Ekiti State Government said neither he nor his party, the All Progressives Congress, was involved in the vote-buying that allegedly took place during the election.

Speaking shortly after being presented to Buhari, Oyebanji said he did not witness any vote-buying in the polling unit where he voted.While explaining that he won the election based on the performance of the Fayemi-led administration, Oyebanji said he canvassed for votes based on the administration’s record.


On his part, the National Chairman of the APC, Senator Abdulahi Adamu, dismissed the vote-buying allegations, calling it a last-minute instrument by the opposition parties who did not garner enough votes to win the election.
