They charged all the aspirants that participated in the election to bury their differences and join efforts to ensure that the candidate of the party and Minister of Mines and Steel Development Dr Kayode Fayemi wins the governorship poll in the state.

Receiving the report, Mr Odigie-Oyegun praised the aspirants for their spirit of sportsmanship, adding that the disrupted primary gave the party an opportunity to organise a flawless one.

Balla said, "In the three days that we (the committee) sat, we did not receive a single petition, either in form of writing, telephone call or a text message, which means there was no petition after the primary in Ekiti State".

Other members of the appeal committee are Captain Bala Jibrin (Secretary) and Mrs. Lilian Obenwa.

Izunaso while speaking after receiving the committee´s report, thanked its members for undertaking the assignment on behalf of the party.

Olusola of the PDP and Fayemi of the APC are major contenders to the governorship seat of Ekiti State in the coming July 14 governorship election in the state.

"We are working to ensure that the victory you have started is carried through, come July 14, the governorship election in Ekiti", he said.

"We are glad that you have finished your assignment after sitting for three days, and there is no petition from any aspirant".

He also demanded that his supporters must be respected and not victimised by the victor of the primary, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, and his supporters.

He said that APC has taken internal democracy seriously, and the success of the Ekiti Primary, with more than 30 aspirants, further validates our party's democratic credentials.

He added that the party leadership was planning to meet with all the 33 aspirants that contested the primary for the party´s ticket to properly integrate them into its programme.

He, however, took a swipe at Governor Fayose whom he accused of being "a common enemy" of the APC and Ekiti people.

"This is another opportunity for Ekiti people to regain that mandate, and this time around, it will no longer be stolen by anybody".

"Furthermore, he must demonstrate that he is now a changed person by desisting from telling white lies as he did on National Television yesterday, lying so brazenly that he did not give APC delegates money to get their votes".

The Isan-born politician was declared victor by the Ekiti State APC Governorship Primary Electoral Committee Chairman, Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa State.
