Ekiti State governor Ayodele Fayose has reacted to the unfolding results of the National Assembly, House of Representatives and State House of Assembly elections in Rivers State, calling on United States’ president-elect, Donald Trump, to wade into the matter.
Fayose in a statement signed by his Media aide, Lere Olayinka, argued that Buhari has dragged Nigeria back in time by marring elections with violence and rigging using Federal forces.
Said the statement,
“He (Fayose) reiterated his call to the United States of America’s President-elect, Mr Donald Trump, to focus his attention more on Nigeria, with a view to saving the country from disintegrating, saying; ‘God forbid, if Nigeria disintegrates, the entire continent of Africa will disintegrate.
“Free, fair and credible election is dead in the country and that whatever victory that is recorded by any political party in the Rivers State election will be nothing but victory at gunpoint.
“We thought that we have gone past this era of manipulated electoral process after the 2015 general elections, which brought the APC and President Buhari to power, but the Buhari administration has taken us back to the stone age by merging his party, APC with INEC, the police, military and other security agencies.
“It is even more worrisome that despite the fact that votes are counted openly at the polling units, voters are no longer sure of the results of elections until announcement by INEC, which has become an organ of the APC.”
