The Ekiti State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP has described the state governor Kayode Fayemi and Presidential Aspirant on the platform of the (APC), Dr Kayode Fayemi has a master craft of election manipulation.
The PDP which based its submission on the allegation by a former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, (APC)
Comrade Adams Oshiomhole that Fayemi once asked him to rig an election in his favour.declared that Oshiomole’s claim is an indication that Fayemi was an election rigger and never a democrat.
The Ekiti State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Raphael Adeyanju in a statement in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday ,
Comrade Oshiomhole’s allegation, which was made on a national television that Fayemi is a fraudulent democrat has only reinforced our stance that the incumbent governor of Ekiti State has never won any free and fair election. He has always been a product of rigged election and manipulated judicial victory .”
The PDP said it “dismissed the desperate attempt of the governors spokesman to launder the image of his principal when the damage has been puerile and laughable. Since members of the public are fully aware of what is going on in the APC.
“It is on record that Dr Fayemi contested a primary election on the platform of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN and the Primary election was rigged in his favour . This prompted seventeen other aspirants in the party to pull out of the party as a protest against the fraudulent election. He eventually became the governor of Ekiti state
through a manipulated judicial victory”.
The opposition party also alleged that Fayemi also got his second term ticket through a very rancorous and controversial primary election.
“The primary election had to be conducted twice ,because aggrieved party members had to violently disrupt the primary election over the allegation that Fayemi was manipulating the whole process. The general election was seriously rigged against the PDP gubernatorial candidate in 2018.”
The PDP therefore enjoined Ekiti voters to be watchful against any form of manipulation that might want to arise from any angle in the June 18 governoship election coming up in the state.
” The recent revelation from Comrade Oshiomhole should serve as a lesson to Ekiti electorates to be vigilant against the antics of the APC rigging machines. Their leopard can never change their spots ,but the electorates should demonstrate that no power can subdue the real will power of people are determined to free themselves from ,hunger and insecurity created by the APC clueless government ”
Adeyanju added that Governor Fayemi has not supervised any free primary
election as the governor of Ekiti State.
“The APC as a party does not believe in party primary . All their House of Assembly candidates , Local Government Chairmen and councillorship
candidate always emerge through SMS messages sent by emperor Fayemi. He is that a democrat ?.
