The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, on Sunday, accused the ruling All Progressives Congress of monetizing the just concluded governorship election in Ekiti State

It was reported that the candidate of the APC, Biodun Oyebanji, who is the immediate past Secretary to the State Government, won the governorship election in 15 out of the 16 Local Government Areas of Ekiti State. He polled 187,057 votes to defeat his rivals Olabisi Kolawole of the Peoples Democratic Party and Segun Oni of the Social Democratic Party, who polled 67,457 and 82, 211 respectively.

Meanwhile, the human rights activist, via his Twitter handle, described the exercise as unfair and corrupt.
He accused the outgoing governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi, and other members of the ruling party of destroying democracy in the country.
