Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has reacted to the just concluded Osun State gubernatorial election which saw the emergence of Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress as winner.
According to Fayose, the election shows that democracy is dead in Nigeria.
In his words, ‘with the show of shame that happened in last Saturday’s Osun state governorship election in general and the Thursday rerun in particular, there is no other conclusion to draw than that democracy is now dead in our beloved country’.
He added that, ‘the Osun supplementary election was just a repeat of what happened in Ekiti state on July 14 and it is unfortunate that, again, the will of the people has been perverted.It was obvious even to the blind that the Osun election, as was the case with Ekiti, was a contest between the PDP and the security agencies supervised by a compromised INEC’.
‘Therefore, we want to believe that conscionable Nigerians and the survival of this country as a whole are at the mercy of God and of the judiciary. And if the judiciary fails to rise up to the occasion, Nigerians will be among men the most miserable’ he said.
