Ahead of the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti State, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, yesterday told governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State to be ready for a defeat, asserting that the party will ensure that any plot to rig the election by the PDP was frustrated. Oshiomhole stated this shortly after the chairman of the party’s Ekiti Election Committee and governor of Kebbi State, Alhaji Abubakar Bagudu briefed members of the National Working Committee of the party, about the preparedness of the party ahead the Ekiti governorship election.
The national chairman who declared that the party was fully ready for the election, narrated that, “We are very impressed with the amount of work that governor Bagudu has done with other members of the campaign council. We have a candidate who is not new to governance, he has a track record. And we also know that in the last election, which brought Ayo Fayose to office, how it was rigged.
“Money collected from NNPC. The military officers, who were used. The young officer who participated in the misuse of the armed forces, his confessions. All those manipulating tools will not be used this time around. So Fayose and his candidate will have to learn and prove they were never familiar with rigging. They have to convince the electorate. On the reported suit against the APC governorship candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi by Segun Oni, one of the governorship aspirants of the APC, Oshiomhole said he has not received any court papers recalling that “at the mega rally of the APC in Ekiti, Segun Oni spoke eloquently at the flag off ceremony. Segun Oni is a complete gentleman and I have a lot of respect for him. He spoke and I believe he spoke from his heart”.
