Nigeria: Influencing Electoral results, Worse Than Corruption - Fayose to Buhari

As more and more people continue to react to the judgment of the River State electoral tribunal which sat at Abuja, Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has lent his voice. Fayose conveyed his displeasure at the verdict which he believes was influenced by the Presidency and the APC. According to Fayose, “This is worse than corruption that the president claimed to be fighting.”

Fayose’s thoughts were made known through Lere Olayinka his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media.  According to Fayose, “The seeming collaboration between the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government and a section of the judiciary is worrisome and portends grave danger to the corporate existence of Nigeria.”

He went on to say that “the desperation to take over the South-south states of Rivers and Akwa Ibom through the backdoor by President Muhammadu Buhari and his APC, in preparation for 2019, using the judiciary may, cause anarchy in the country.”

The governor went further to site some examples of states were the APC won dubiously without the tribunal annulling the elections. He said “there were widespread electoral malpractices during the presidential election in the North, with rampant under-aged voting. Yet, Dr Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) did not take steps capable of threatening Nigeria’s corporate existence.

Curiously too, in a State like Yobe where it was established that the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Abu Zarma received N15 million bribe from the Aide-de-Camp (ADC) to the State Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Zakari Deba to influence the State Governorship election, the tribunal did not nullify the election.”

Fayose further advised on the possible consequence of tampering with the people’s will by referring to bloody political terrain of the 60s. He said “the consequences of the orchestrated plot to prevent the people of Western Region from having the government of their choice through a fair and just election in 1964 should be a watchful example for Nigerians in general and President Buhari in particular.”

Fayose concluded by encouraging the people of the South-south not to be deterred by these set backs as he hoped the appeal courts will stand by the will of the people. He said Governors Wike and Udom, as well as the teeming supporters of our party, PDP in Rivers and Akwa Ibom States should not be deterred and discouraged as I am sure that by the special grace of God, they will laugh last.”
