Facts You Might Not Know About Ekiti State And His Election by blogbuilder: 4:59pm On Jul 18, 2018
The election might had come and gone but the impact toward the Nigeria and the world at large will not be forgotten soon.
Fountain of knowledge as it was formerly called is a state blessed with a lot of elites. It is among the top 5 states with the highest number of professors in Nigeria.
The election was free and fair but money influence most of the voters to vote for or against their wishes.
It's worthy to note that Ekiti State was created on 1/10/1996.

These are some of the facts you might not know about the state and it elections

Ruled by highest number of governors(cool: Between 1999 to 2018,ekiti state has been ruled by 8 different governors in just 5tenure.
1999_2003 Otunba Adeniyi Adebayo
2003-2007
Ayodele Fayose
Chief Friday Aderemi
Tunji Olurin
Tope Ademiluyi

2007-2010 Segun Oni
2010-2014 Kayode Fayemi
2014-2018 Ayodele Fayose


No party has ruled twice in a row:
Ekiti State is the only state where a party has never rule in a row. This has been their pattern over the years.
From Era of
Adebayo(AD)
Fayose( PDP) to
Segun Oni(PDP) to
Fayemi (APC) to
Fayose(PDP) to
Fayemi(APC).
It's worthy to note that Segun Oni was not the governor elect in 2007.It was as a result of manipulation of result that Segun Oni was declared . This was later cancelled by election tribunal and Fayemi was pronounced as the winner in 2010


Reelect one person after years of voting them out
: Fayemi returning to the seat of power in the state makes it the second person that will be voted out and return to the seat in years later. Firstly it was Fayose in 2003 and he was reelected in 2014


Two incumbent defeated by one person:
Fayose added this to his portfolio. In 2014 when he won the governorship election, he boasted that he's the only one that unseated two incumbent governor to clinch the seat of power in the state. Actually, this is true. He unseated Adebayo in 2003 and Fayemi in 2014. Both are incumbents.

What we need is sustainable development, I pray JKF initiates Unrivaled development alongside human development.
The instability in governance has made us grow relatively slower to the remaining 5 states economically but I believe in a short while with consistent leadership, we are getting there.

God Bless Ekiti State!
