Gun shots rented the air on Tuesday in Ado-Ekiti in celebration after news filtered in that the Supreme Court ruling on the 2014 government polls in the was in favour of Ayo Fayose.
The All Progressive Congress (APC) had challenged Fayose's victory in the Tribunal but lost. It took an appeal in the Court of Appeal and lost before proceeding to the Supreme Court. Former Governor Kayode Fayemi of the APC lost to Fayose in the June 21, 2014 governorship elections. As soon as the judgment was delivered, several gunshots from the direction of the Government House were shot into the air apparently to celebrate the victory.
Also, civil servants and many other residents trooped out on the street dancing and singing solidarity songs. Commercial motorcyclists, commercial drivers and market men and women were not left out. The governor is planning to hold a victory rally across the state capital.
