Fayose - INEC, APC are pre-loading Card readers - Fayose raises alarm over rigging plot

Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has accused the All Progressives Congress, APC and the independent National Electoral Commission, INEC of colluding to preload card readers in order to rig the upcoming July 14 Ekiti gubernatorial elections.

Fayose revealed that the plot to manipulate the electoral process to favour the APC candidate, John Kayode Fayemi was being hatched in Akure, Ondo state.

Fayose made this allegation on Friday on a broadcast programme in Ekiti. He also made the allegation again in a statement released on Saturday by his Chief press secretary, Idowu Adelusi;

“I don’t want to bring this picture out yet, but those who said preloading is not possible are lying. Right now, they are doing manual preloading in Akure as I speak. For polling units with over 1,000 voters, they spread the preloading to between 50 and 200 votes per polling unit.

In Ikere, 58 of such polling units were targeted and Ado Ekiti has 158 of such polling units. They want to get people they will stuff with the ballot papers and dump such papers in the ballot boxes at such polling units.

They are also printing fake voter cards in Akure with support from the Ondo State Government. They are also working to bring in about 14,000 people from Ondo State to come and vote here. They have already issued fake 7,000 voter cards and they are daily printing this.

They promised to give each person N15,000 if he/she helps them stuff ballot boxes with the fake ballot papers they are printing.”

    This is pathetic! How can someone who is desperate at everything resulting to be named autocratic even in polls and power fight corruption? The confusion is everywhere as Obasanjo among Yoruba leaders met over uniting against mediocrity and autocracy where the midpoint between the two weaknesses could be what; no one knows? Politics is not all about saying one thing here and doing another there. We claimed to operate according to the rule of law, yet act out of whims. We graduate legal practitioners and confer SANship everyday yet no one is capable of challenging the erring trend. The irony of life here is best refers to as the confusion of the ignoramus. It is indeed, pathetic.
