PDP’s Fayose warns against inconclusive election
Urges electorate to vote for Ize-Iyamu
Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has warned against perverting the results of Saturday’s polls in favour of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).He gave the warning in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communication and New Media, Lere Olayinka.
According to Fayose, the PDP would not tolerate any inconclusive polls from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).The statement tasked the INEC and security agencies to be neutral before, during and after the election.He urged the Edo electorate to cast their votes for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s candidate, Pastor Osagie-Ize-Iyamu.
The governor described the PDP as the real and better change that Nigerians need, now that the “shenanigans of the APC have been exposed.”Fayose continued: “Edo people should not make the same mistake that Nigerians made last year, when they voted for the APC government of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
“Apart from party sentiments, Ize-Iyamu has campaigned through the nooks and crannies of the state to sell his visions and missions to the people.“ Anyone who saw the Channels Television debate on Sunday would agree that Ize-Iyamu is better-equipped for the governance of Edo State.”
The governor urged the people to be extra-vigilant.“They should not just vote and go to sleep, they must make sure that their votes count and victory is ensured for Pastor Ize-Iyamu, who is unarguably the best among the contenders,” he added.
Fayose said the Edo election would be a litmus test for the APC-led Federal Government. He urged all government agencies involved in the election to put the interest of democracy first.
He said INEC must not repeat its story of inconclusiveness in Saturday’s election, noting that for the first time in the history of this government, it must ensure that the election is free, fair and conclusive.
