Governor Ayodele Fayose yesterday berated the All Progressives Congress for using Federal might to block all roads leading to Ekiti Government House.
Governor Fayose said that it was abnormal for the Federal Government to have ordered security men to prevent vehicles from going in and out of the Government House while the APC rally lasted.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday was in Ekiti state in company of top APC leaders to campaign for the APC candidate, Dr. Kayode Fayemi ahead of Saturday, July 14, governorship election.
Fayose said, “Many visitors to the Government House parked their cars and trekked inside while those already inside abandoned their vehicles and trekked home. It is an abnormality to block the gates of the Government House.
“Pedestrians were allowed to go in with many going to join the Ekiti drivers unions who assembled at the government house since Monday night”.
Fayose, on Monday night, had ordered the transport workers’ leaders to instruct their members to park their vehicles at the Government House, in what many in the state believe was a show of power and test of popularity.
Speaking about the presence of the crowd at the Government House ground, Fayose said it has proved to the All Progressives Congress that the masses were for him.
