A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the conduct of Ekiti governorship election, which has the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate Kayode Fayemi leading.
Fani Kayode took to his Twitter page criticising the process. He stated that democracy had been defeated in Nigeria.
He described the Ekiti election as a “sham”.
He tweeted: “The Ekiti election was a sham. The APC paid 4000 naira for each vote they got and, in collusion with INEC officials, they used the police and security agencies to drive away PDP agents and supporters from voting and collation centres. They also shut down the local television stations to prevent the truth from being exposed.
“I say weep not for @GovAyoFayose or the PDP but rather weep for the people of Ekiti, for Yorubaland, for the south and for Nigeria.
“There is no democracy in this country, robbery took place yesterday.”
