In his reaction, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Idowu Adelusi, described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as bad losers.
“APC people are bad losers. Like I always say, if APC wins election, that election is perfect, if APC is defeated, the election has been rigged by the winner.
In the imagination of APC, it is either the soldiers or the police rigged for the PDP, or that thugs were deployed which locked the APC members in their houses, so that they couldn’t come out to vote.
“The Ekiti APC is only trying to find excuse for its outright rejection by Ekiti people despite all attempts to demonise Ayo Fayose.
They tried to ignite crisis so as to coerce INEC to postpone the election, but that did not work. The APC people are trying to explain away their third time defeat by Ayo Fayose.
“It is the APC people that resorted to snatching of ballot boxes at polling booths.
In Ilejemeje, Ikole, Efon, Ekiti West, the sinking APC members snatched ballot boxes, the contents were burned. These reports are with the police for necessary action.
“The victory of Governor Fayose has demonstrated his popularity and a clear indication of the resolve of Ekiti people to defend the mandate given to him. Lastly, if APC has any complain, let them go to the tribunal.”
