A former Deputy Speaker of Ekiti State House of Assembly, Adetunji Orisalade, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari and the judiciary ensure just prevails in the alleged rigging of the June 21, 2014 governorship election in the state.

Orisalade stated this in a statement released to newsmen in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, today, February 4.

He said in view of the revelation made by Dr. Tope Aluko, a former Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state,  Fayose's election must not be allowed to stand.

He added that Aluko should not be criticised for coming out with the truth but instead commended for having the courage to shed light into the "judicial coup", which was allegedly carried out by ex-president Goodluck Jonathan's agents.
