Governor Ayodele Fayose has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting to rig the Ekiti State governorship election.
The outspoken governor made this known when hosting the Political/Economic Chief, United States Consulate, Osman Tat, during a courtesy visit to Ado Ekiti.
He said the APC was plotting to rig because the party can not win in a transparent and credible election.
Fayose stated that: “We are popular and our party, the Peoples Democratic Party, is popular because of our performance in government and my brand of politics.
“In 2014, I defeated Dr Kayode Fayemi, even as he was the sitting governor then. The United States applauded the 2014 election and even recommended it as a benchmark for the 2015 general elections because it was transparent and devoid of violence and intimidation of voters.
“The letter written by the American Government on the election is still here for the records.
“Ekiti people will resist rigging. They will resist the Federal Government or the Independent National Electoral Commission rubbishing their votes. The people’s might is greater and more potent than the federal might.”
