Ekiti Election Was Fraudulent - Governor Aregbesola

Osun State Governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, has faulted the Ekiti governorship poll on June 23 which saw PDP candidate Fayose emerge winner saying the All Progressives Congress lost the Ekiti State governorship polls due to fraud and irregularities.

Governor Aregbesola made this known while speaking during the continuation of his re-election campaign in Ikirun on Tuesday.

Aregbesola who recently urged the people of Osun state to go to the polling booths armed with charms and verses from the Quran and Bible as the law does not frown against it, however, said that it was impossible to rig him out in the August 9, 2014 governorship election in Osun state because he still enjoyed the support of the masses.

Aregbesola, who was obviously excited by the large turnout of his supporters at the campaign, said: "They perpetrated fraud in Ekiti but we are looking at them. They said that my days in office remain 43 days and I just laughed. What they did in Ekiti is not possible here in Osun. Osun is different and they know it.

In 2011, all Yoruba states voted for Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate but Osun people voted for Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, who was the Action Congress of Nigeria candidate. We are different in Osun. Don't let them scare you.

"The people here today have shown that they are solidly behind us. We are not angry about the development in Ekiti State because it is part of democracy. Ekiti people have made their choice."

The Director General of the Aregbesola Campaign Organisation, Senator Sola Adeyeye, urged the people of the state to vote wisely by casting their votes for Aregbesola.

He said that those who killed Chief Bola Ige were around the corner seeking to hijack power in the state.
