"Fayemi should not celebrate this pyrrhic victory yet because it is nothing but a fame that will be quenched on July 14th".

"Once Ekiti people come out enmasse and vote for the APC, we will defend our result and ensure that we reclaim what truly belong to us. He should expect to suffer worse defeat compared to that of 2014".
