Ado Ekiti - Gov. Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has warned President Muhammadu Buhari and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) against repeating what he described as a show of shame that was witnessed in Kogi State governorship election in Bayelsa State, reports Thisday.
Fayose, who spoke on Wednesday through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said President Buhari and INEC should be mindful of the consequences of perpetrating the Kogi electoral fraud in Bayelsa State.
He noted that if INEC could mess up its first assignment under President Buhari’s kinsman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, Nigerians should get prepared for manipulated electoral processes.

He disclosed that instead of turning itself into a court, INEC ought to have approached the Supreme Court for proper interpretation on the relevant laws since the Kogi scenario was not envisaged in the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended).
He called on the judiciary to be bold enough to provide the necessary intervention on the Kogi stalemated election.
