Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state has called on Nigerians to rise against the All Progressives Congress led government’s attempt to destroy democracy.
He said this while congratulating Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa state, on his re-election.
Fayose speaking through his media aide, Lere Olayinka, said “If in three days, INEC could not conduct credible election in Bayelsa State of just eight local governments, one wonders what will happen during the general elections in 2019. The simple reality is that INEC under this Buhari’s kinsman, Prof Yakubu, who is fast becoming the classical example of incompetence cannot guarantee free and fair elections in this country.”
Fayose praised the people of Bayelsa for their courage, adding that they are “worthy heroes of democracy that stood their ground against agents of darkness that were prepared to short-change them by imposing a governor they do not want on them.”
He also said “Now that they have failed in their bid to use one local government to rig themselves to power, they will surely go back to their evil drawing board to plan fresh assaults.
“Therefore, Bayelsa people must henceforth sleep with their two eyes opened because the APC thieves come not only to steal, but to kill and that can be seen in the way and manner they murdered over 20 people just because they wanted power at all cost.”
