Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has warned All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole to desist from rigging Ekiti state governorship election slated for Saturday 14 July 2018.
Governor Fayose gave this warning through his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi reacting to a remark by the APC national chairman that the Governor is “hunted by ghosts of forces he used to capture power”.
He said the APC national chairman has threatened to capture the state by all means.
He cautioned Oshiomhole that electorates in the state will resist the attempt.
“Oshiomole’s secret plan to use his fraudulent Edo template in Ekiti will never work and it will attract injurious consequences. This is because Ekiti people are resolutely determined to resist rigging right on the spot,” the statement read.
“Contrary to Adams’ diatribe, rumour peddling and rabble rousing unbecoming of an ex- governor and national chairman of the ruling party, Fayose and PDP are only interested in a credible election.
“Fayose and PDP are raising the alarm because of tell-tale signs that APC and Fayemi are plotting to rig the election.
“The statements by top APC leaders including its former chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun that they must capture Ekiti by all means are very instructive in this regard.”
Making reference to the 2014 governorship election, in which he emerged winner, Fayose said Oshiomhole had no choice but to accept the ruling of the supreme court.
“If Adams Oshiomhole still has problems with that election, he should address his misgivings to the US and the international community.
“Besides, APC challenged the election up to the Supreme Court but lost. Is Adams Oshiomhole disputing and despising the highest court of the land? It must be noted that he himself became governor by the same court judgment.”
Ekiti state governorship election will next week Saturday.
