“INEC welcomes the decision of Prof. Eleka to go to the tribunal on the outcome of the governorship election. That is the proper thing to do,” INEC’s director of voter education and publicity, Wole Osaze-Uzzi said.

“Legal process is a better resort than making inciting statements and engaging in media trial. We welcome judicial intervention on disputes arising from the election. Just like in the case of Edo State, it is left to Eleka to prove his case before the tribunal.”

The official said the fact that international and local observers rated the conduct of the poll as good was an indication that the outcome of the election was a fair reflection of the will of the people of Ekiti state.

“We have been receiving preliminary reports from the accredited Civil Society Organisations (CSOs). Most of those in the so-called Coalition of Civil Society Groups were not accredited for the poll by INEC,” he said.

“The materials and logistics were on spot and accreditation of voters started as and when due in more than 92 per cent of the polling units.”
