We Have Discovered How INEC Rigged Ekiti Election –Fayemi
Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has revealed that his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), has discovered how the Independent National Electoral Commission rigged the June 21 Governorship poll in the state in favour of PDP's candidate, Ayo Fayose.
Fayemi made the revelation while featuring on the Yoruba Edition of the monthly progamme ‘Gomino S’alaye’ in Ado-Ekiti. The governor assured that all the dirty deals would be exposed in no distant time.
“I want to say that we have discovered some fraud in the last election. But it is [not] yet a matter for public consumption. This discovery had certainly gave us the hope that our party would win Osun election,” Fayemi stated.
According to Daily Independent, the governor while speaking on how the agitation for creation of additional local governments actually pre-dated the creation of Ekiti State itself. Fayemi said: “Even when Ekiti was still part of the old Ondo State, many of our communities had pushed for either splitting or creation of additional local governments in their respective constituencies. What we have done so far followed due process.”
In what appeared to be his response to the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees which ordered his members to stay off new council areas, Fayemi said workers have no business in the process of creating new councils. He urged any worker who wish to play politics to leave Civil Service and face full time politics.
