Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has described the postponement of the Edo State governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as a very bad signal and beginning of the end for democracy in Nigeria.

He added that; “it is obvious that the All Progressives Congress (APC) feared that it can’t win the election and is ready to employ whatever crude means to subvert the wish of the people.”

The governor, who said he was alarmed by the APC government of President Mohammadu Buhari’s use of security agencies to arm-twist democratic process said: “I warned Nigerians not to elect Buhari because he lacked capacity mentally, morally and intellectually to superintend over any civilised society, now we are all seeing the results. Our economy is in recession and democracy is also in recession!”

In a statement on Thursday, signed by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said INEC knew that it was not going to conduct the election on Saturday as scheduled but opted to deceive Nigerians.

He said; “Apart from the security agencies that they instructed not to provide security for the election, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) was under instruction since yesterday (Wednesday) not to release electoral materials to INEC.

“It was just a game by the APC-led federal government to frustrate the people of Edo State from kick-starting the journey of changing the APC one-chance change in Nigeria, but they should realise that the power of the people will always be greater than the power of those in power.”

“How can you postpone an election less than 48 hours to the scheduled date? What manner of security concern could prevent an election in just one State when elections were held in Northeast States that are confronted by Boko Haram insurgents?

“Obviously, this is a sign of what to come in 2019 and Nigerians should not be amazed if in 2019, they tell us that elections cannot be conducted.

“This is sad! It is a sad commentary for democracy in Nigeria and I only hope this Buhari’s APC government will not collapse democracy in this country,” the governor said.

While calling on the people of Edo State to remain steadfast in their resolve to vote out the APC government, which had become a government of hunger, poverty, job loss, economic and political recession, insecurity and unprecedented sufferings, Governor Fayose said; “Let them keep postponing their evil day, Edo people should just be vigilant and wait patiently for that day that they will use their votes to change the APC one-chance change.”

  3. F*****h fayose with his little brain. were you not defending your government when the postponed 2015 election by jonathan. PDP is gone just crying for nothing. if PDP is sure of winning then they should calm down and wait for the D day. i will see if u will sill be in PDP in 2019. no matter how bad APC government may be is better than PDP. PDP boasted that they will win IMO rerun at the end they did not win a single seat out of the four seat contested. let us wait and see if PDP will not be history by 2017.

  4. I guess this guy like spending Ekiti money on publicity more than what benefits people. He is the most on news among his colleagues. Anyway, he is a politician but I don't think I can trust him

  5. What good thing has this insane Fayode brought to Ekiti state since he became the governor, except going about buying and eating (boli) roasted plantain and (guguru) popcorn at the roadside,a smokescreen that this lout uses to hoodwink poor market women

  6. Listen to Governor Fayose outburst is like drinking beer with the so called useless Governor. He is as useless as anything that is useless. What has he done in Ekiti state? He always like to be noticed. Anyway, his end is coming very soon. PMB government is a government of the people and for the people. How can you go ahead with election based on security issue? does that means, the unthinkable governor does not value Edo state citizen life. After all, the dull governor supported the shifting of 2015 Presidential Elections for same reason. Shame of the governor that is not doing anything but noise making.

  7. I think FAYOSE needs deliverance. Only a f**l will give credits 2 his comments. its a shame people of ekiti voted for a man without common sense. Since no money is coming from Aso rock 2 his personal a/c, he will talk any how now. Buhari is a man born of flesh & blood just like u & I. I rather trust GOD than putting my trust in a man created by HIM. Whether u like/hate him, he's our president. we can only pray that GOD should use this man if not 4 anything but 4 d good of average Nigerians. NB: Nigeria needs our prayers.

  8. It is because Governor Fayose is jobless. He always want to be noticed. What has he done in Ekiti State, except making noise, attacking the President. Time will surely tell. They have been cowed as they do not have the chance to continue looting the treasury.
    I blame all these newspaper publishers promoting Fayose by way of publishing his comments. God will deliver us.

  10. In fact, I cannot understand why people still listen to Fayose. He is simply shameless and a disgrace. Somebody who vehemently defended the shift of 2015 Presidential /Governorship election when it dawned on them that they were going to lose, is now crying for mere 2wks shift.

  11. Please my people, I want you to read today's punch newspaper. Age Babalola complained bitterly about the state of ekiti. Former fountain of knowledge now fountain of rogues.
