Bringing an end to the administration of Kayode Fayemi, Abiodun OYEBANJI and his deputy, Chief (Mrs) Monisade Afute, have been sworn in as the Governor and Deputy Governor of Ekiti state, respectively. They were sworn in by Hon. Justice Oyewole Adeyeye, the Chief Judge of Ekiti state, on Sunday, October 16, 2022.

The tenure of Kayode Fayemi lapsed, and it paved the way for another helmsman to take over for the four coming years. The newly elected governor was a former secretary to the State Government. He was also a candidate for the All Progressive Congress, known as APC. He emerged as the winner in the governorship poll that took place on June 18, 2022.

Shortly after his inauguration, he addressed the people. He promised that his governance would be all-inclusive, making the state a place where equity, prosperity and unity would blossom. He also said that during his tenure, a high premium would be placed on Human Capital Development, Arts, Culture, Agriculture and Rural Development, Tourism, Infrastructure and Industrialization, and good governance for the transformation of the state. In his words, “I’ll make Ekiti a land of abundance.”

The Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and many governors, among other top-rated and illustrious Nigerians, were present at the inauguration ceremony. The outgone governor Kayode Fayemi, his deputy, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi and Governor Ayodele Fayose also graced the inauguration ceremony in a momentous fashion.
