Nigeria's ruling party boosted by key state poll win

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan speaks in Abuja on May 7, 2014Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan and his embattled ruling party have wrested a key state from the opposition ahead of general polls next year, results showed Sunday. Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Peter Ayodele Fayose was elected governor in southwestern Ekiti state, beating the incumbent John Kayode Fayemi by a two-to-one margin, the electoral commission said. The PDP — never out of power nationally since Nigeria returned to civilian rule in 1999 — lost Ekiti to the All Progressives Congress (APC) four years ago and until Saturday controlled none of the six southwestern states.
