Ekiti State governor Ayo Fayose made the statement during an interview with Punch Newspapers’ Kamarudeen Ogundele over the weekend.
When asked if the All Progressives Congress (APC) will ever rule Ekiti State, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain fired:
“No way. I’m street-wise.
“When we start the game, the Independent National Electoral Commission that is trying to manipulate elections will know there is a street boy in Ekiti State.
“Somebody approached me and told me that if I wanted to win an election, he knew how to do it in INEC. When he finished talking, he asked me to help his children. I told him no.
“That is why you see people dying mysteriously because they have perverted the journey for some people. They cause pains and sorrow for people.
“INEC should allow Nigerians to make their choice. Candidates and political parties should contest an election against one another – not against INEC.”
