Protect Your Voters Cards, Adeyeye Tells Ekiti Voters
Afenifere Chieftain and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirants in Ekiti State, Prince Dayo Adeyeye has urged eligible voters in the State to protect their voters' cards so as to be able save the State from mis-governance by voting for the PDP on June 21, 2014.
Adeyeye, who accused the All Progressive Congress (APC) of using the ongoing membership registration of the party to collect information of people's voters' cards and in some cases, collect the cards, added that; “Collecting information on voters' cards is illegal because it is only INEC that can seek information on the cards.”
In a release issued by the Director General, Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement (PAAM), Hon Bisi Kolawole, the governorship aspirant, who alleged that various plots are being hatched by the State Government to manipulate the governorship election, said; “all those old tricks are known to us and at the right time, we will foil them.”
Adeyeye said; “We have received reports that the APC people are going about deceiving members of the public that registering as a member of the party will guarantee them government largesse. They are also collecting information on people's voters' cards which is an illegal act.
“Most importantly, they are presenting the registration exercise as part of INEC registration of voters, and we wish to inform our people that what is going on is strictly for the APC. It has nothing to with INEC and benefit is government programmes. In actual fact, what good is this present government offering anyone?
“We are therefore urging Ekiti people, who are obviously tired of a government that is borrowing money to build government house, civic centre, state pavilion and wasteful projects, that they should not release their voters' cards to anyone. They should hold jealously to the cards because that is the only instrument with which they can rescue Ekiti from this government of pillagers.”
