The Ekiti Guber candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Kayode Fayemi has raised alarm over an alleged plot by the Opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to cause violence all over the state in the build-up to the Elections.
Fayemi also denied the report that Opeyemi Bamidele has been flown abroad for further treatment, describing the story as false.
It will be recalled that Bamidele, alongside five other party members, were shot at a reception rally organised in honour of Fayemi at the party secretariat in Ado-Ekiti, on Friday, the 1st of June.
Speaking with newsmen shortly after the inauguration of the party campaign council in Ado Ekiti, Fayemi said he was with Bamidele the previous night in an undisclosed Hospital in Lagos, where, according to him, the former member of the House of Representatives is recuperating.
Speaking on the shooting, Fayemi said; “Let me state here that the shooting incident should not be seen as a pointer to what will happen on July 14 election. We are committed to peaceful election and the security has assured us that they will be alive to their responsibilities. The intelligence report we got that the PDP was plotting to cause violence of various forms in every part of the state has been shared with security agencies and they are working on it.
“We are happy that every contestant, I mean the governorship aspirants are contributing to our campaign, so APC is intact and united. They are all eager to work for the victory of our party in this election. Unlike PDP that is disunited. You could see that Prince Dayo Adeyeye has formally joined us. Others will be joining us one after the other and before the election, Governor Ayodele Fayose will be alone”.
