Nigeria’s democracy is dead, says Fayose on Osun election

Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti, has described the Osun state gubernatorial election and rerun as a show of shame.

Fayose, in a statement by Idowu Adelusi, his chief press secretary, rejected the result of the election.

He said the election is proof that democracy is dead in Nigeria.

The governor said Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), did not lose the election “but your mandate has only been stolen”.

Fayose further likened the Osun election to that of the July 14 gubernatorial election in Ekiti, saying the will of the people was perverted.

He, therefore, called on the judiciary to prevail on the situation.

“With the show of shame that happened in last Saturday’s Osun state governorship election and the Thursday rerun, in particular, there is no other conclusion to draw than that democracy is now dead in our beloved country,” Fayose said.

“The Osun supplementary election was just a repeat of what happened in Ekiti state on July 14th. 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.”
