Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe State has reacted to reports of violence and harrassment from Ekiti State today that left Governor Fayose hospitalised.
According to Dankwambo, ‘the attempt by the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress to subvert the will of the people on Saturday in Ekiti will be resisted’.
He also said, ‘just got off the phone with my brother, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State. He has briefed me of the ongoing harassment by security operatives. What is happening in Ekiti state is shameful and undemocratic. If we strengthen our public institutions to be effective and independent, we won’t be needing 30,000 Police Officers and 4,000 soldiers to ensure a free, fair and credible election.’
