IT IS OFFICIAL!!! Fayose Hides In Big Shame, As APC ‘Flogs’ Fayose In His Polling Unit

Former Governor, Ayodele Fayose, of Ekiti State, on Saturday, has failed to deliver his polling unit and ward, in his hometown, Afao Ekiti, in Irepodun Ifelodun Local Government Area of the State, to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, swept the ward in the House of Assembly election.

At Fayose’s unit, at St David’s Primary School, the APC Candidate in Irepodun/Ifelodun Constituency (2), Alhaji Hakeem Jamiu, polled 168 votes, to defeat the Peoples Democratic Party’s Candidate, Sunday Omosilade, who got 26 votes.

The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reported that Omosilade, who was Fayose’s Personal Assistant, had in a letter to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, signified his intention to withdraw from the race.

He cited a lack of confidence in the neutrality of INEC to conduct a free and fair election.

His withdrawal was rejected by INEC, which claimed that Omosilade remains the Candidate of the PDP for the Constituency. INEC said that he should have withdrawn from the race, at least 45 days before the poll, as allowed under the Electoral Act.

Also, at Units 15 and 003, Igbemo Ward, Jamiu recorded 171 and 335 votes, respectively, while the PDP polled 0 votes, in the two units.

The former Governor, also lost in his Afao/Araromi ward, as the APC scored 648 votes, while the PDP got 67 votes.
