Governor Ayodele Fayose has finally reacted to the outcome of the Ekiti gubernatorial election describing it as rigged and blaming President Muhammadu Buhari.
Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress had defeated Professor Kolapo Eleka who is the deputy governor of the state in the July 14 polls.
In a series of tweets on Monday, July 16, Fayose vowed that the party would secure its stolen mandate in court. He claimed there was no celebration in Ekiti after Fayemi’s victory saying it showed mandate was stolen from the people.

In a previous report by Legit.ng, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)'s national commissioner, Amina Zakari, responded to the allegations of Governor Ayodele Fayose that she was trying to use her office to rig the polls.
Zakari demanded a public apology from Fayose within a space of two days.
Ubong Akpan Chambers, Zakari's lawyer, said in a letter that Fayose’s accusation that she worked with the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Kayode Fayemi, the winner of the 2018 Ekiti governorship election, has been injurious to her health, career and public reputation.
