- Governor Fayose's aide Lere Olayinka has faulted Fayemi's request for additional security details ahead of his coming inauguration
- Fayemi who defeated Fayose backed Eleka will be inaugurated October 16, 2018
- Olayinka also alleged that the governor elect is going about in bullet proof cars
Lere Olayinka, special assistant to Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state on public communications and new media says the request of Kayode Fayemi, governor elect to the federal government to beef up security in the state ahead of his inauguration, is an indication that he got his mandate through fraud.
Fayemi who will be inaugurated October 16, 2018 had reportedly demanded for security beef up when he paid courtesy visit on the minister of interior, Lieutenant-General Abdulrahman Dambazzau, The Sun.
Fayemi was said to have noted that the state just came out of election conflict and would need the strengthening of security forces to ensure smooth transition of governance.
“It was this same fear of the unknown that made Fayemi to deploy police helicopters for aerial surveillance when he came to Ado Ekiti to receive his Certificate of Return from INEC.
“What is he afraid of? Shouldn’t the same people that purportedly voted for him be happy and eager to usher him to office?
“Fayemi is even afraid of his own party people. That’s why he goes about in bullet-proof vehicles and that’s the reason he needed aerial surveillance by police helicopters just to receive his certificate of return.
“Obviously, a man who won an election fairly will be ushered into office by the people who voted for him while the one who got electoral victory through the help of security men will need to be guarded into office and while in office by armed policemen as being requested for by Fayemi,” Olayinka said.
NAIJ.com had reported that a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Ayo Arise, explained how he and other stalwarts of the ruling party in Ekiti worked to prevent the state governor, Ayodele Fayose from installing his deputy, Prof Kolapo Olusola Eleka, as his successor.
In an interview with The Point, the former lawmaker said he and other APC stalwarts resolved not to allow Fayose impose Eleka on the state.
