A Nigerian lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria SAN, Festus Keyamo has congratulated Biodun Oyebanji for his victory in the just-concluded gubernatorial election in Ekiti State.

Keyamo congratulated Oyebanji via his Twitter account on Sunday morning.

He used the opportunity to urge the governing party All Progressives Congress APC to remain focused as the Osun Governorship election and 2023 general election are coming up.

“Whilst this buoys our spirits in APC and I congratulate our own Biodun Oyebanji on this momentous feat, we must keep our feet firmly on the ground as there’s greater work ahead to win the Osun Governorship election & the 2023 Presidential elections. There should be no complacency” he said.

It would be recalled that the Independent National Electoral Commission had declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Biodun Oyebanji, as the winner of the Ekiti State governorship election.
