PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Olisa Metuh, in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, said the ruling “has given hope to the survival of democracy especially coming at a time when some officials of key institutions of democracy such as INEC and some security personnel have already started compromising their independence apparently under the dictates of an obsessive All Progressives Congress.”

Metuh congratulated Fayose and the people of Ekiti State for their doggedness in the face of daunting challenges from those he described as anti-democratic forces and urged the governor to be magnanimous in victory while using his mandate to deliver good governance in line with the PDP manifesto and vision of its founding fathers.

He restated the PDP resolve to continue to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the governor and the people of the state and vowed to resist any form of political intimidation or blackmail aimed at destabilising the state.
