We Will Not Allow You To Rig In Ekiti, PDP Tells Fayemi
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has said that it will not give any chance for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Dr Kayode Fayemi to rig the coming governorship election in the state.
The PDP Publicity Secretary in the state, Mr Jackson Adebayo made this known in a statement on Monday as he alleged that the APC governorship primary held on Saturday was rigged by the former state governor.
Fayemi who was the state governor is the present Minister of Mines and Steel Development in the cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Ekiti PDP spokesman warned the APC against using federal might to rig the July 14 governorship poll as he called on residents to be vigilant about the antics of Fayemi and his party.
Adebayo said Ekiti people abhor the manipulation of the electoral process and would not tolerate any action that would infringe on their inalienable right to choose their leaders in free, fair and credible elections.
He stated that any attempt by the APC to rig would incur the wrath of the people. “We will not allow anybody to scuttle the election. We will resist rigging,” Adebayo said.
