All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Kayode Fayemi, won the election.
However, Olusola-Eleka’s boss, Governor Ayodele Fayose, faulted the outcome of the poll and described Fayiemi’s victory as temporary, adding that it would be upturned at the tribunal.
INEC has now insisted that the result of the election was a reflection of the will of the people.
The agency’s Director of Voter Education and Publicity, Mr. Wole Osaze-Uzzi, said: “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.

“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.”
Osaze-Uzzi rated the outcome of the election as “good and a fair reflection of the will of the people of Ekiti State. Even international and local observers rated the conduct of the poll as good.
“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.
