Ekiti youth suspect governors of electoral foul play

28 May 2014, 10:05

Ekiti - Some youth in Ekiti has accused the Governorship candidates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti and Osun States, Ayodele Fayose and Iyiola Omisore, of plotting to import troublemakers into the two states under the guise of poll monitors.

Under the auspices of the Ekiti Youth Emancipation Movement, the youth alleged that both Fayose and Omisore had already succeeded in registering spurious groups as monitors in the June 21 governorship elections.

“These poll monitors, we gather, had already been registered with INEC. These Fayose and Omisore's imported thugs masked as poll monitors would then be deployed to all polling units with cloned voter's cards on election day with the mandate to destroy ballot boxes and papers wherever APC is leading in the poll. The PDP is feverishly worried that Fayemi will record a sweeping victory in the election hence its plan to cause a stalemate,” the group said in a statement signed by its President, Taiwo Olatunji.

He added, “We are waiting to see how these aliens will be in possession of voter's cards in Ekiti State. We would like to know their polling units, wards and local governments in Ekiti.”

The group called on all residents of Ekiti State to be vigilant and “defend their fatherland from encroachment by violent elements working for Fayose and Omisore.”
