Ekiti 2014: Fayemi Won't Get Up To 50,000 Votes—Adeyeye's Wife
Wife of the Ekiti State Governor, Mrs Bisi Fayemi has been told to perish the thought of her husband staying in the Ekiti Government House beyond October 16, 2014.
Princess Adetomilola Adeyeye, wife of former Spokesperson of Afenifere and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in Ekiti State, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, who said this during a meeting with market women in Ise-Ekiti on Monday, declared that; "Fayemi won't get up to 50,000 votes in the election.
She said; "The voting strength of Ekiti is as at 2011 is 750 ,753 and if someone is boasting of getting more than 500,000 votes from 750,753 voters, such a person is either hallucinating or telling the public that they have perfected a digitalised rigging plan."
Adeyeye's wife said it was laughable for the governor's wife to have boasted that her husband will win the governorship election with more than 500,000 votes, adding that; "it is only in the dreamland that someone can score 150 marks in an examination that is based on 100 marks."
Fayemi's wife had said; “The margin between him and the next person will not be less than 500,000. It will be so confounding that lawyers will be discouraged to accept brief from defeated candidates to challenge the result at the tribunal.”
But Adeyeye's said; "When I read it in the newspapers that Fayemi's wife boasted that her husband will win with more than 500,000 votes, I laughed because I knew the woman was just reacting to the spur of the moment.
"I am a full blooded Ekiti daughter. My father, ruled Egbeoba Kingdom for many years. So I know that only someone who does not know Ekiti would say that her husband will defeat other contestants with more than 500,000 votes.
"In the history of elections in Ekiti, was there any time we had up to 500,000 votes?
"And where is the governor going to get the votes from? Is it from the civil servants, teachers, local government workers, health workers, pensioners, okada riders and the market women?
"Rather than going about deceiving herself, the governor's wife should better begin to make arrangements for her exit from the government house because the next occupier is my husband, Prince Adedayo Adeyeye."
