The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate and the State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi was already preparing to go to the tribunal to challenges result of the next Saturday.
Fayose, who said all the frivolous allegations being bandied by the governor and his party was aimed at preparing the minds of their supporters for an imminent failure in the election, alleged a popular blogger, Kayode Ogundamisi had been paid a huge amount of money to coordinate about 40 other bloggers for the purpose of announcing fake results on the internet.
In a release issued by the Director General, Ayo Fayose Campaign Organisation (AFCO), Chief Dipo Anisulowo, the PDP candidate said Nigerians should be mindful of the antics of the APC, adding that; "The game plan now is to discredit the election results so as to justify their plan to go to the tribunal to challenge the results and the State owned broadcast station and Adaba FM, a private radio station in Akure, Ondo State have been position to broadcast fake news on Saturday."
He described as total falsehood, publication by some online media that members of the PDP were arrested in a hotel with fake ballot papers, saying; "what simply happened was that the APC gave security agents false information that PDP members were thumprinting ballot papers in a hotel.
"The security agents stormed the hotel and only found our consultants, who were engaged to train our polling agents. Nothing incriminating was found on them and they were released immediately."
While calling on Nigerians to disregard any result not authenticated by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Fayose said; "We are aware that a certain blogger, Kayode Ogundamisi was hired by Fayemi to dish out falsehood about us on the internet.
"A sum of N50 million has been released to the blogger to coordinate about 40 other bloggers and their assignment started with the lies they spread on the rice that we distributed to the people.
"They have continued with their assignment of propagating falsehood against us, but we don't care because their lies are not being bought by Ekiti people who have already made up their minds send Fayemi away from the government house.
"On Saturday, they are going to be spreading fake results, so as to give impression that the election was rigged when the authentic is released by INEC.
"Nigerians should therefore be mindful of anything coming from Kayode Ogundamisi and his gang."
