Fayemi: See How U.K. Govt Monitored #EkitiDecides2018

Ekiti State election fever has ended with the declaration of Kayode Fayemi as the winner. 

The election was hugely monitored by local and foreign observers.

Nigeria’s colonial master, the United Kingdom, is still giving its support for Nigeria’s democracy and it is showing.

On Saturday, the U.K. government monitored the governorship election in Ekiti.

The British envoy in Nigeria, Paul Arkwright, was the one that observed the election on behalf of his nation.

He was in Ekiti State and he shared every moment of #EkitiDecides2018 as it progressed.

It started with voters checking for their names in the list of voters to be sure of where they would vote.

And then it was time for accreditation and voting which happened simultaneously.

Even the future voters were also out there observing things while they wait patiently for their time in the near future.

Mr Arkwright was also there when voting ended, with a voting unit now housing a half-drank bottle of soft drink.

Dr Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress polled a total of 197,459 votes while the People’s Democratic Party’s candidate, Professor Kolapo Eleka, polled 178,121 votes.
