EKITI ELECTION: Fayemi warns Fayose against influencing voters choice

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has warned Governor Ayodele Fayose against alleged collection of workers' voter cards through coercion.

Fayemi, who concluded his campaign to all the 133 communities across the state ahead of the July 14 poll on Friday to seek support of voters, said voters had inalienable right to vote for candidate of their choice.

It's being alleged that since the last two weeks, Fayose had ordered school principals and some interest groups among teachers to collect the names, bank accounts and voter cards details of teachers in public schools for profiling.

Fayemi stated this while speaking with reporters in his Isan-Ekiti country home in Oye Local Government, the last town he visited in his three-week campaign tours of the state.

Fayemi, who promised to provide visionary leadership through his eight-point agenda to redirect the state to the path of growth and development, told Fayose that workers should be allowed to cast their votes for their preferred candidates in the coming election without any fear of intimidation by the government or its officials.

He added that compelling workers and teachers to submit their PVC numbers as a condition for salary and running grants payment or promotion amounted to undue intimidation and crude blackmail.

He lamented that Fayose shut down the School of Agriculture Technology in Isan Ekiti and took away all the tractors and other modern farming tools in the school "at a time many other states are breaking new grounds in agriculture development and food sufficiency".

He explained that the College was designed to assist in training manpower in the agriculture sector that would in turn boost agricultural production in the state.
