” The determination displayed by the people on Saturday was unprecedented and unbelievable.

” I saw the number of people coming out from their villages and homes, contrary to the rumour of riot and crisis being spread across the state a few days to the election.

” It is obvious that the wishes of the people have prevailed especially at a critical period in Ekiti,” he said.

INEC issued the certificate of return to Fayemi early in the week.
