Buhari receives Ekiti governor-elect, says things getting better with APC

The joy of electoral victory was savored at State House, Abuja, Monday, as President Muhammadu Buhari received Governor-elect of Ekiti State, Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji, in the audience.

The newly elected Governor was led to the event by Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, Governors Kayode Fayemi, Atiku Bagudu, and Mohammed Abubakar of Ekiti, Kebbi, and Jigawa states, respectively.

President Buhari said he keenly followed the polls held on Saturday, June 18, and was with the orderly conduct, and the way the electorate and security agencies comported themselves.
