Ekiti Election: We Won’t Allow You Rig For APC- Fayose Tells INEC

The accusation and counter-accusation bordering on election rigging between incumbent Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) continued on Thursday.

Mr. Fayose, belonging to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has on several occasions accused INEC of plans to rig the July 14 governorship election in the state in favour of the All Progressive Congress (APC).

The electoral body has also been denying the accusations challenging the governor and his party to back their allegations with evidence.

The governor’s allegations ranged from; compromised card readers, electoral staff; bribery of security officials; padding of sensitive election materials; indiscriminate arrest of top functionaries of the state government; among others.

Speaking at the grand rally of the PDP’s campaign train of the party’s candidate, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, Fayose told the electoral body that they (INEC) would not be handed a breathing space to carry out their alleged rigging plan.

“INEC we want to tell you, we know your plans that you want to rig for APC, we will follow your bumper to bumper,” the governor said.

He also told the APC to forget about winning the gubernatorial election as the state belongs to the PDP.

“Ekiti is a no go area, we are not interested in violence.

“I have been your governor for the past four years, nobody has been attacked, no politically motivated violence in Ekiti,” he said.

Fayose also criticised the ongoing nationwide killings in the country challenging PDP to come back into power at the national level.

The governor also expressed optimism that his party will coast to victory at the end of the poll.
