Lack of ‘Stomach Infrastructure’ Responsible for Fayemi’s Defeat – Reps

As political pundits continue to x-ray some of the factors responsible for the defeat of the incumbent governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, by the PDP candidate, Ayodele Fayose, Minority leader, federal House of Representatives, Samson Osagie, yesterday expressed shock at the voting attitude of the people and wondered why the APC lost out despite providing infrastructure in the state. In a reaction to the Ekiti election results, Osagie also commended Governor Fayemi for conceding defeat to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). His words: “I commend him for being the first Nigerian seating governor to have congratulated his opponent after he lost to him. The fairness and free nature of the election is as stated by those who witnessed it. “I have never underrated his (Fayose) capacity and indeed the moment he became PDP’s candidate I knew our own brother Gov. Fayemi was in trouble. From inquiries, Governor Fayemi lost not because he failed to govern well; he indeed delivered on critical infrastructure, but he was said to have failed in providing ‘stomach infrastructure’.
