PDP will win all 26 Ekiti Assembly seats - Fayose boasts


Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has described his administration as a government by the people, saying, ”Ekiti people, who are the owners of my mandate, will defend it against political usurpers whom they have rejected twice in the last nine months.”
In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor also urged the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Mahmud Mohammed, to maintain his stand on not allowing the judiciary to be used to overturn the outcome of elections.

Fayose, who described the purported impeachment moves and Supreme Court judgment being championed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a plot to distract him from concentrating on governance and the upcoming House of Assembly election, called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state not to be distracted from their goal of delivering all the 26 Assembly seats in the state to the party.
He said, “Sovereignty belongs to the people, and the people of Ekiti State on June 21, 2014 surrendered their sovereignty to me to be their governor for four years. Instead of respecting the wish of Ekiti people, which they again affirmed on March 28 and will further affirm on April 4, the APC people that were rejected in two free and fair elections have been trying all tricks to return to power through the back door.”
Fayose urged the opposition to “respect the wish of Ekiti people as the PDP and President Goodluck Jonathan respected the wish of Nigerians on the election of Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd).
“Any attempt to undermine the sovereignty of Ekiti people, using whatever instrument, will be resisted by the people themselves because power belongs to the people and they have handed it to whom they desire to exercise till October 16, 2018.
“The APC gladiators in Ekiti should therefore emulate President Jonathan and the PDP by waiting till 2018 to try their luck again”.
