PDP Will Not Be Able To Rig In Ekiti Again – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has said his government will not give chance to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Ekiti State to rig the July 14 governorship election.
He said that the last election that brought the incumbent Governor Ayodele Fayose to power was characterized by a lot of riggings, which would not be allowed to happen again.
President Buhari said the last governorship election in Ekiti was characterized by “Hanky-panky”, as he called on the leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the Southwest to rally round the APC candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi.
Buhari said this while hosting the members of the APC South-West caucus to a dinner at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He told other aspirants who contested with Fayemi to rally support for the candidate and rescue Ekiti from Ayodele Fayose.
Buhari said it was not in his character to interfere in the internal workings of the APC because it was the responsibility of the party to conduct primaries for elective positions.
He said now that the party had completed that assignment and a candidate had emerged, the job of party leaders was to build a united front that could propel the party to victory in the election that he described as all important.
