• Charges SIEC to do ‘what is right’

The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has told the State Independent Electoral Commission (SIEC), to ensure that the December 7, local government election is transparent, credible, free and fair.

He said that the body should avoid the temptation of rigging the election for the ruling party.

The Governor spoke in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday at the APC’s mega rally to drum support for the 16 Chairmanship and 177 councilorship candidates presented by the party for the coming poll.

Fayemi, represented by his Deputy, Chief Bisi Egbeyemi, said: ”Don’t worry, we have worked hard for these election, everybody is going to win.

“We are not going to rig election. It is going to be free and fair and we shall be happy after the whole thing. The SIEC will be given free hands to do what is just and right”.

Presenting flags to the candidates, the APC chairman in Ekiti, Hon. Paul Omotoso, said the party has worked hard by taking the campaign to all the nook and cranny of the state to mobilise supports for the candidates.
