Ekiti Guber: Vote for Fayemi and get ready to welcome killer herdsmen - PDP warns Ekiti electorates


Ahead of the July 14, 2018 governorship election in Ekiti State, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has said that a vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, was an invitation to Fulani herdsmen to take over the state.

The party also said that what the people of Ekiti would reap by voting the APC were killing by herdsmen and the forced occupation of their land.

At a mass rally to garner support for the PDP governorship candidate, Prof. Eleka Olusola, the PDP National Chairman Prince Uche Secondus, said that Ekiti people had spoken with the tumultuous crowd at the event.

He asked the crowd: “Will you vote for herdsmen, will you vote for killings? We believe that Ekiti is one of the states of the federation that has the highest level of educated and well-trained manpower . You have the highest professors, and our youths are very strong, very innovative, very resourceful. Our youths are not lazy. Our youths are future leaders, and future governors are here, among you will be senators, among you there will be ministers”

Secondus said: “Now listen attentively. I came here with members of the National Working Committee (NWC) to thank the people of Ekiti for standing for PDP. The faith that you have in PDP and as you can see, Ayo Fayose as governor has worked for the people of Ekiti. Look at the flyover bridge, look at other infrastructure in the state. All the PDP states are going around commissioning projects. Can you see that in APC states? The answer is no?

“So PDP is rebranded, PDP is repositioned, and PDP is ready to regain the lost ground,” he stated.

Secondus did not travel to Ekiti alone as he said ”standing before you is a rescue team, to rescue Nigeria from total economic collapse, to rescue Nigeria from security collapse, to rescue Nigeria from all sorts of inhuman treatments meted out by the APC government. And as you can see, killing is going on in all the states, especially Zanfara, Taraba, Benue and the genocide in Plateau. How long will you kill our people, how many people can you kill?

“I call on God Almighty, because I know that APC and its leaders, they are not God. And we refuse to be intimidated, it is the style of their government to intimidate, to frighten, we refuse to fear. Now listen, it is time for you to know, if you vote for Fayemi, you know that Fayemi is going to take your land, and hand over the land to herdsmen. So you must not vote for Fayemi,” he said Governor Fayose revealed plans by the APC to rig the election.

He said: “We know your plans, what you are doing in Ondo and what you are doing in Kogi, you are planning to release ballot papers to your people.”

Fayose stated that the PDP will disgrace the APC and therefore called on Ekiti people to defend their votes.

“If you vote for APC, you are voting herdsmen,” he said.

Present at the rally were former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar; former PDP Chairman and presidential aspirant, Senator Ahmed Markafi; River State Governor, Nyesom Wike; Akwa Ibom State Governor, Emmanuel Udom; Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, Cross River Governor’s Prof. Benedith Ayade, Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi; former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel; former Governor of Niger State, Babangida Alyiu, among other PDP stalwarts.
