Tinubu afraid of losing his investments in Ekiti – Fayose
The Ayo Fayose Campaign Organisation (AFCO) has described the statement
issued by the All Progressives Congress (APC) leader, Senator Bola Tinubu,
threatening war and anarchy should the result of tomorrow's governorship election in Ekiti
State goes against the APC as “lamentation of a political merchant that is about to
lose his investments.”
Deputy Chairman, Media and Publicity Committee of AFCO, Mr Lere Olayinka,
said in a release issued on Friday that “it is obvious that the reality of an impending
rejection of his slave drivers by the people of Ekiti State is already
dawning on Tinubu and he must weep.”
AFCO said it was strange that despite that Electoral Laws forbid campaign
48 hours to an election, Tinubu and his APC could still go to press to carry out
indirect campaigns for their party, while also trying to arm-twist and blackmail the
Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the security agencies.
“We had expected that Tinubu and his party would respect the Electoral Law
but since leopard can never change the colours of its skin, they have behaved true
to type by campaigning for APC and Governor Kayode Fayemi.
“Most importantly, we are not unmindful of the fact that Tinubu's fear of an
impending loss of Ekiti, which he has turned to his political colony has
demented his mind, such that he does know that Nigeria is not owned by him and cannot
dictate how government agencies perform their duties.
“We therefore urge INEC and security agencies involved in the election to
ignore Tinubu and his ranting of an impending loser, and do their jobs in
accordance with the Constitution of Nigeria.
“Nigerians should also bear in their minds that election is only free and
fair when it is won by the APC, but otherwise when other parties win,” Olayinka said.
