The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Thursday, asked the people of Ondo State to protect their votes ahead of Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
Fayose spoke in Akure during a rally held at the Democracy Park along the Oba Adesida Road shortly after the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), arrived in Akure.
Fayose, who joined Jegede during the campaign tour of the state capital, said the PDP would resist any attempt to rig the poll.
The governor led the supporters in solidarity songs with the cheering crowd
He alleged that the Federal Government was planning to rig the election for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN).
He said, “You have to stand strong on Saturday. Votes must be counted in your presence. There is a difference between a struggle and a movement. Both are different from (political) parties. The movement is that Eyitayo must be governor of Ondo State.”
