- Police fault Fayose over alleged compromise of Ekiti governorship poll
Kolapo Olusola Eleka, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is already crying foul about the Saturday July 14 election outcome, alleging manipulation of results.
In a statement, a spokesperson of the candidate Lere Olayinka said: “We contested against security agencies and alleged that plans were afoot to tinker with the results of the election.
Olayinka said results in most of the local councils are currently being tinkered with, The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
"Aside the fact that it was an election of the PDP versus all the security agencies in the country, we are confident of winning.
He said the various wards collating centres have been taken over by armed thugs backed by security agencies as it was before and during the election.
“Despite the intimidation and harassment by security agencies, we are still hopeful of winning the election but we are confronted with a clear plot to manipulate the results.
“We are therefore calling on all well meaning Nigerians to prevail on the security agencies and INEC to allow the will of Ekiti people to prevail."
Meanwhile, the Nigeria police have dismissed allegations by Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state that the Saturday, July 14, gubernatorial election was largely compromised by personnel of the police force.
One of the three police commissioners deployed in the area to monitor the election, Ali Janga, described as untrue allegations that policemen were complicit in election malpractice.
He commended Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the electorate for the peaceful conduct of the exercise.
