Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has raised the alarm that

Nigeria under President Mohammadu Buhari was fast becoming a shame,

describing the failed attempt by the All Progressives Congress (APC)

to manipulate the Bayelsa State governorship election as clear

invitation to anarchy.
The governor, who said it was shameful that the two elections

conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)

under Buhari's kinsman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu were inconclusive, called

on all well-meaning Nigerians and the international community to rise

up in condemnation of the APC government's plot to destroy democracy

in the country.
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and

New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose who said everything under

Buhari was becoming inconclusive, added that; “If in three days, INEC

could not conduct credible election in Bayelsa State of just eight

local governments, one wonders what will happen during the general

elections in 2019. The simple reality is that INEC under this Buhari's

kinsman, Prof Yakubu, who is fast  becoming the classical example of

incompetence cannot guarantee free and fair elections in this

country.”
He saluted the courage of the people of Bayelsa State, describing them

as “worthy heroes of democracy that stood their ground against agents

of darkness that were prepared to short-change them by imposing a

governor they do not want on them.”
Governor Fayose also congratulated the Bayelsa State Governor and the

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Seriake Dickson for having

the people of Bayelsa behind him, adding that “the people of Bayelsa

have shown that their power is more than that of the Abuja political

oppressors.”
He urged the governor and Bayelsa people not to lose their guard,

saying; “Now that they have failed in their bid to use one local

government to rig themselves to power, they will surely go back to

their evil drawing board to plan fresh assaults.
“Therefore, Bayelsa people must henceforth sleep with their two eyes

opened because the APC thieves come not only to steal, but to kill and

that can be seen in the way and manner they murdered over 20 people

just because they wanted power at all cost.”
While warning on the consequences of destruction of the legacy of

free, fair and credible electoral process bequeathed on Nigeria by Dr

Goodluck Jonathan, Governor Fayose said; “Nigerians, especially we in

Ekiti State are already taking a cue from the Kogi and Bayelsa States

experience and are getting prepared for future elections.”
