APC’s challenge of Fayose’s victory, waste of time —Adeyeye Movement

The Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement (PAAM) has described the petition filed at the tribunal by the All Progressives Congress (APC), challenging the June 21, Ekiti State governorship election as a waste of time and further demonstration of the party’s selfishness, arrogance and hatred for democratic process. PAAM, in a release issued in Ado-Ekiti by its Director- General, Bisi Kolawole, said “the APC is only advertising its shamelessness as a party, by challenging the results of an election in which its candidate could not win his own local council.” The movement described as laughable, claim of “manipulation, undue militarisation, impeachment, as well as EFCC’s cases hanging on the governor-elect, Mr Ayodele Fayose,” adding that “only a party comprising of people that are interested in dancing naked in the marketplace would make provision of adequate security for an election a tribunal issue. It said the APC was only complaining because the heavy presence of security men during the election scuttled its plans to use armed thugs it imported and lodged in various hotels in the state to rig the election. “While we recognise the inalienable rights of all Nigerians to approach the courts for redress on any issue, we must say that going to court to challenge an election in which Dr Kayode Fayemi, a sitting governor, lost even in his local government is a waste of time and a clear demonstration of the APC’s hatred for Nigeria and its people. “This is more so that the APC candidate, Governor Fayemi, had accepted the election results and congratulated the winner,” it said.
