Ayodele Fayose has been sworn in as the Governor of Ekiti State.
The ceremony was witnessed by the PDP national chairman Alhaji Adamu Muazu and several PDP governors.
The oath of office was administered on him by the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Ayodeji Daramola.
In his inaugural speech, Governor Fayose while describing his second coming as divinely ordained urged the people of Ekiti state to defend his administration.
Governor Fayose alleged that the immediate past governor, Kayode Fayemi left a debt profile of eighty four billion dollars.
The new governor vowed never to recognise the Local Government Development Areas recently created by his predecessor.
Governor Fayose used the occasion to announce the defection of six APC members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly to the PDP.
