The Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA) Mr. Mike Omeri has commended the Independent National Electorate Commission (INEC) for living up to its pledge to conduct a free and fair election in the just concluded governorship poll in Ekiti State.
The DG who was full of praises for the people of Ekiti said the conduct of the election without violence has shown that the spirit of DoThe Right Thing to transform Nigeria is beginning to bear fruit.
According to him, INEC has proved itself once more by the early deployment of material and the declaration of result at a record time.
Mr Omeri while congratulating the winner of the Ekiti gubernatorial election, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, he advised him to be a sportsman and be magnanimous in victory, knowing that he requires the support of all to succeed.
Speaking on the disposition of the Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi who has already conceded to the PDP candidate, he commended him for his leadership qualities especially in accepting defeat and pledging to work with the in-coming governor.
“This is a rare show of the spirit of patriotism which must be emulated by other politicians” he said.
