Fayose

A resolute Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose, vowed, on Wednesday that no amount of intimidation will make the people of the state abdicate their resolve to choose their next governor, on Saturday.

The governor, who said that the onslaught against his government on Wednesday, in which he was seriously wounded, was on the orders of former Governor, Kayode Fayemi, to the security agents to attack him.

Narrating the incident, Fayose, said in a statement signed by his spokesman, Lere Olayinka that the attack was akin to an attempt to murder democracy.

The statement, read: “Today, those holding power in Abuja placed knife on the neck of democracy by unleashing terror on the peace-loving people of Ekiti State, including the governor, Ayodele Fayose.

“Attempt was clearly made to assassinate the governor.  He only escaped being hit by the bullets and teargas canisters fired by the policemen by the whiskers. That was after the policemen had openly assaulted him.

“The armed MOPOL had barricaded the government house, preventing movement in and out of the seat of power in Ekiti State.

“The mission of the policemen, who acted on the instruction of the APC governorship candidate, Kayode Fayemi was to prevent the PDP from holding its victory rally slated for today. The APC was so intimidated by the huge crowd that converged at the government entrance that they invaded the Campaign Office of our governorship candidate with armed policemen.

“When Governor Fayose came out of the government house at about 11am to inquire why the government was blocked, the MOPOL Commander said openly that “governor my foot.” He said he had instruction from above to kill whoever challenged his authority and before one could say jack, he ordered that his men should start shooting and firing teargas canisters.

“In the process, Governor Fayose sustained injury and fell. He was immediately rushed to the government house clinic and later to the State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti where he is recuperating now.

“With what happened in Ado Ekiti today, Nigerians and the entire world can begin to imagine the level of violence the APC and its candidate will unleash on the people on Saturday.

“It should be clearer to people of good conscience that these APC people do not want the votes of Ekiti people to count. They have boasted that they will use federal might to hijack power in Ekiti and they are living up to it, with the police and DSS acting as their terror army.

“The most dangerous signal being sent by the APC is that there will be no election in 2019 as Nigerians would have been subdued and captured before then.

“Lovers of democracy and progress of Nigeria must therefore rise in defence of the country now, before it is too late. Nigerians must not allow these APC desperadoes to collapse democracy and turn the country to a captured territory.

“Let’s save Nigeria now before it is too late. Here in Ekiti, it is very clear that the APC does not have the support of the people. The people of Ekiti are desirous to elect their governor by themselves and no amount of intimidation and harassment will stop them.

“We call on the people of Ekiti to be law-abiding and on Saturday, they should all go out to cast their votes and make sure that their votes are protected. In the end, the might of Ekiti people will prevail over federal might.”
