Governor Ayodele Fayose went on air to declare the PDP candidate as the winner of the Ekiti governorship election that was held in the state on Saturday, moments before official results were announced.
Immediately, the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission shut down the Ekiti State Broadcasting Corporation.
The INEC was still collating results of the election, awaiting electronic computation from the 16 council areas in the state to the INEC headquarters when the NBC ordered the closure.
No winner had emerged as of the time the governor reportedly made the announcement, and the broadcasting regulatory agency gave the order.
The INEC headquarters was condoned off as results were being awaited.
Eventually, Fayemi defeated Olusola in the Ekiti elections 2018. From the results of the 16 local government areas in the state, Fayemi defeated Olusola in 12 LGAs.
Fayemi (APC) polled 197,459 while Olusola scored 178,121 votes.
