A former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Dr. Temitope Aluko, in an interview, revealed how Governor Fayose allegedly used the Nigerian Army to rig the governorship elections in the state.

Following the incident, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti state, has called on the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to prosecute everybody that was involved in the rigging of the 2014 elections.

Vanguard reports that the APC Publicity secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun in the state said “By Aluko’s revelations, we are justified in our claim that our candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi, never lost that election, but was criminally toppled by a coup d’etat orchestrated by Fayose in cahoots with President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration that illegally deployed money and the military to ensure victory for Fayose.”

Adding that “It is interesting that more names are coming up in the biggest election scam ever witnessed in Nigeria with the alleged participation of Ifeanyi Ubah of the infamous Transformation Agenda for Nigeria (TAN), a shadowy campaign group for former President Jonathan in the fraud. No wonder Ubah was compensated with a honorary Fellow by Fayose at the Ekiti State College of Education for a job well done.”

The APC spokesperson also said "It is in the light of this that we are calling on the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation to prosecute all the suspects in the election fraud for treasonable felony to preserve the integrity of the Nigerian Constitution.”

Aluko also alleged that former President Goodluck Jonathan gave Fayose $37m to rig the 2014 governorship election in the state.

Governor Ayo Fayose has since denied the allegations, describing it as an APC gimmick.
