Ado Ekiti - Gov Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of encouraging anarchy by allegedly using his personal lawyer and a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who is the Attorney- General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), to influence the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the inconclusive Kogi State governorship poll, reports Vanguard.
The governor also accused Buhari of fraudulently using the AGF to carry out an act which amounted to amending the 1999 Constitution and the Electoral Act 2010 to advance his ambition and that of his party to turn Nigeria to a one party state.

Fayose in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said only the Supreme Court can resolve issues not envisaged by the Constitution like the one that happened concerning the Kogi State governorship election.
He vowed to use all legal means to fight the kangaroo decision.
He noted that it was shameful that the first election held by the new INEC Chairman, Prof Mahmud Yakubu, ended in controversy.
He said the manipulation of the exercise and INEC's illegal position on the substitution of APC candidate was a vindication of his earlier position that Yakubu was appointed to do the biddings of the Presidency and APC.
Fayose noted that the fact that Abubakar Audu died in the early hours of last Sunday and his death was kept secret until later that day pointed to the sinister plot by the APC.
