Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose has said President Muhammadu Buhari has compromised the process of free and fair elections in the state.
Fayose said this on Sunday in a statement by his media aide, Lere Olayinka.
He was speaking on the Rivers legislative rerun which he described as disgraceful.
He said Buhari has compromised INEC and taken Nigeria back to the stone age.
The statement read in part, “He (Fayose) reiterated his call to the United States of America’s President-elect, Mr Donald Trump, to focus his attention more on Nigeria, with a view to saving the country from disintegrating, saying; ‘God forbid, if Nigeria disintegrates, the entire continent of Africa will disintegrate’’’.
He added, “Free, fair and credible election is dead in the country and that whatever victory that is recorded by any political party in the Rivers State election will be nothing but victory at gunpoint.”
Fayose said the President has destroyed the legacy of free and fair elections laid by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“We thought that we have gone past this era of manipulated electoral process after the 2015 general elections, which brought the APC and President Buhari to power, but the Buhari administration has taken us back to the stone age by merging his party, APC with INEC, the police, military and other security agencies.”
