Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has rejected and condemned the outcome of the governorship election held in the state over the weekend.
In a series of tweets on Monday, Fayose accused President Muhammadu Buhari of using the security operatives to win the poll for the All Progressives Congress (APC) and their candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi.
See tweets below:
If APC truly won, why was it that there was no jubilation in Ekiti ?
That victory of Kayode Fayemi is pyrrhic, we will reclaim the stolen mandate in the court by the power of God.
What Buhari won as referendum from Ekiti people , Nigerians, and international community is shame, big shame.
The President should bury his head in shame for using the police, army, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and INEC to snatch the mandate given to Olusola and deliver it to Fayemi “whom Ekiti people rejected.”
It is only Buhari that will pride himself with the security shooting sporadically at polling centres , scaring people to pave the way for the APC thugs to snatch ballot boxes.
On this Ekiti election, President Buhari demonstrated truly that he is not a democrat, but a dictator and fascist per excellence.”
The former minister defeated his PDP opponent and Ekiti Deputy Governor and more than 30 other aspirants in the keenly contested election.
Fayemi was victorious in 11 out of the 16 local government areas of the state, polling 197,459 votes to beat his closest rival Olusola who got 178,121 votes.
