With just four months to the conduct of the Ekiti State gubernatorial election, the state governor, Ayodele Fayose, yesterday visited the national headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in a private car.LEADERSHIP recalls that INEC had fixed July 14 for the governorship election in Ekiti State.
Fayose alighted at the INEC headquarters at about 3pm in a black Range Rover Vogue car with Abuja registration number: KWL850TC.
Fayose, who was apparently trying to disguise himself at the INEC main gate, said “deputy governor” when security men enquired to know who was in the car. “I am here on issues that have to do with INEC with regard to our state election in 2018. Every Nigerian should be able to ask questions as it affects him,” Fayose said after a meeting with the INEC chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu.
“I saw the national commissioners seated and I expressed my concern and it was a fruitful deliberation. “
The deliberation was fruitful and it allays the fears our people might be having concerning the upcoming
election,” Fayose said, adding that what INEC told him was reassuring. Speaking on the issue of the underage voting, Fayose said: “It is a shame for people to present children of four years for voting. INEC
needs to address the Nigerian nation.”
