The chief whip of the Lagos state House of Assembly, Rotimi Abiru, has described the victory of the former minister of mines and steel development, Kayode Fayemi, at the last gubernatorial election in Ekiti state, as an end to fake stomach infrastructure.
NAIJ.com reports that Abiru, who represents Somolu constituency 2 at the Lagos Assembly, said that the people of Ekiti state spoke their minds through the ballot.
The former governor of Ekiti state, Kayode Fayemi, had on Saturday, July 14, defeated Governor Ayodele Fayose's deputy and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Olusola Eleka, in a keenly contested election.
Abiru said that the people have realised that infrastructural development and service delivery is preferred to stomach infrastructure, adding that the APC's triumph was a victory for democracy and the rule of law.
The lawmaker also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for its display of professionalism before, during and after the election.
He also noted that the defeat of the PDP in Ekiti state was a sign of acceptability of the Buhari-led APC government.
He said: "It is a welcome development. The people of Ekiti have spoken their minds through the ballot. They have realised that infrastructural development and service delivery is preferred to stomach infrastructure.
"It is a victory for democracy and the rule of law. It is indeed a sign of acceptability of the Buhari-led APC government. I wish to congratulate Mr. President, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the people of Ekiti and the entire APC family in Nigeria and in the Diaspora."
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had previously reported that the chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), advised Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) not go to court over the result of July 14 governorship election.

Sagay also said PDP's loss in the governorship election was Ekiti people's way of rejecting Fayose by not voting for his deputy and governorship aspirant, Olusola Eleka.
He added that because of Kayode Fayemi's victory at the poll, Ekiti would no longer be referred to as the stomach infrastructure state.
