#EkitiDecides: Fayose Accuses APC, Others of Buying Votes, Says Violence Marred the Election
Peoples Democratic Party Governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Mr. Ayo Fayose, on Saturday berated the All Progressives Congress and other political parties for inducing voters with money at polling units in the state.
Fayose also lamented that despite the heavy presence of security in various parts of the state, the rate of violence was very high.
He said this while addressing journalists shortly after casting his vote in Afao area of Irepodun/Ifelodun Local Government Area.
“The issue of money sharing is unfortunate. It is disturbing when highly placed people in government are assigned to polling units to be sharing money. It is unfortunate. Whatever way it (election) goes, I will leave it to God,” he said.
He added, “The violence is unprecedented. I called the Inspector General of Police to inform him of the violence. And I called the State Security Service Director in the state and I told him this violence is unprecedented. It is unfortunate but I hope we do not carry this into the 2015 election.”
When asked if the violence would not mar his chances, he said, “I have to collate and get information before I can make a statement on whether the violence will affect my chances but I know I have done well, I have campaigned well and I am loved by my people.”
