Kamarudeen Ogundele, Ado Ekiti
Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has slammed the Independent National Electoral Commission, security agencies, especially the police on their “roles” in the Edo and Rivers states elections.
The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors Forum, said revelations coming from the Edo State Governorship Election Tribunal were a pointer to the open display of support for the All Progressives Congress
He said, “We have seen the police and INEC going back and forth on Rivers State rerun elections and I wish to ask the police; what happened to that suspect, Christian Chukwuemela Ekikeme, who reportedly confessed to the complicity of some APC top-shots in the murder of DSP Mohammed Alkali?
“Shouldn’t the police be more interested in bringing those who allegedly killed its officers to justice?
“Also, what has happened to that Yobe State INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) established to have received N15 million bribe to rig the Yobe State election?”
The governor warned that any attempt to rig the 2018 governorship election in Ekiti State will be resisted by the people.
“Here in Ekiti, we are waiting for them. If INEC and its ally, APC like, they can print as many Form EC8A as it can, they will fail.”
“It is sad that snatching of ballot boxes, hijacking of voting materials, electoral violence and most importantly, falsification of election results, which had become a thing of the past have returned to our electoral process.
“INEC and security agencies, especially the police have merged with the APC and the way they are going, results of elections will one day be announced in Abuja in favour of APC without casting a single ballot.”
Fayose called on the international community, especially election observers to pay more attention to the conduct of elections in Nigeria under the APC government.
