The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose has described the importation of Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha to the State by the State Governor and All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi as an exercise in futility, saying; "one million Okorocha cannot save Fayemi from defeat on June 21."

Speaking through the Director General, Ayo Fayose Campaign Organisation (AFCO), Chief Dipo Anisulowo, the governorship candidate, who condemned Okorocha for abandoning his duty post in Owerri for Ekiti election said; "Okorocha must have realised the futility of his efforts with what the Ibo people at Fayose Market did to him yesterday."

Fayose, who decried the arrest of two of the Fayose Market traders, who prevented Okorocha from entering the market yesterday by armed policemen today, added that intimidation of voters, who have made up their minds to vote for the PDP on June 21.

"In the last 48 hours, Governor Rochas Okorocha has been in Ekiti State, moving from one place to another, canvassing support for Fayemi.

"We are aware that of the millions of naira belonging to the people of Imo State that Okorocha has been wasting in Ekiti in the last 48 hours.

"While we pity the people of Imo State who have been abandoned by the governor they elected, we make bold to say that Okorocha is only wasting his time in Ekiti because Ekiti people, including Ibos have made up their minds on who they want as their governor.

"We therefore salute the courage of Ibo people in Ekiti, especially those at Fayose Market for rejecting Okorocha's efforts to force Fayemi, a bad product already rejected by Ekiti people down their throats," AFCO said.
