Why I Refused To Congratulate Fayemi – Ayo Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose on Thursday said he will not congratulate the winner of the July 14 governorship election in the state, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.

This is as Fayose has been accused of frustrating the plans to have a seamless transition ahead of the October 16th take off date of the new government in the state and has refused to congratulate Fayemi on his victory.

But speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, Idowu Adelusi, Fayose’s Chief Press Secretary said the Ekiti State Government will not congratulate Fayemi for carrying out a daylight robbery in the state.

He said Fayemi congratulated Fayose in 2014 because the election that produced Fayose as governor was credible and was lauded by both local and international observers.

“We cannot congratulate him because the election in Ekiti was daylight robbery. Fayemi congratulated Governor Fayose in 2014 because he knew that Governor Fayose won the election convincingly”.

“That victory in the 2014 election was even applauded by the local observers and the international community. Even the United States issued a release applauding that election and even recommended it for the 2015 election.

“ But this 2018 election is daylight robbery which is known to everybody. It was marred by irregularities.

“How can we congratulate you for coming to Ekiti with security apparatus to intimidate our people and to snatch ballot boxes and steal our votes? And you are asking us to come and congratulate you. We can’t do that. We can’t congratulate you for doing a wrong thing,” he said.
