The newly elected governor of Ekiti State, Biodun Oyebanji said there was no case of vote-buying during Saturday’s governorship election in the state .
Oyebanji debunked the reports on Monday shortly after he was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja.
According to him, there was no case of vote-buying in the election as he and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), were committed to a free and fair election.
He attributed his win to the successes of the current Governor, Kayode Fayemi-led administration.
In the same development, Senator Abdulahi Adamu, the APC National Chairman, denied the vote-buying charges, calling them a last-minute tool used by the opposition parties.
Oyebanji defeated his opponents with 187,057 votes from fifteen out of sixteen local government areas in Ekiti state.
