Action Congress (AC) gubernatorial candidate in the April 25 re-run election, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of planning to disrupt GSM service in the state on election day.
Kayode Fayemi Campaign Organisation accused PDP of meeting in the house of one of its leaders, with officials of a telecommunication company, to the effect that GSM services be disrupted in the state during the governorship rerun elections.
“We find the development very condemnable and unfortunate, as it further shows the PDP as an organisation of anti-people who thought indigenes of the Fountain State should be thrown into darkness during the lection, so that the communication of election results from polling booths, in line with agreement with INEC is not achieved, thereby giving them the opportunity to write whatever figure they want.
“The planned affront on the rights of Ekiti people could be likened to the incessant denigration of the people who are painted as incapable of conducting themselves peacefully for decent democratising.
Our sincere advice to the service providers is for them to be vigilant and not allow a few black legs who have surrendered themselves to the dark agents of the PDP in Ekiti State, to rubbish their hard-earned industrial integrity,” he said.
“Despite popular condemnation, we are surprised and feel highly embarrassed, that the PDP is calling for the intervention of the military to supervise Ekiti re-run election, in a bid to induce the rank and file to scare the electorate and snatch ballot boxes,” the group noted.
