The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has warned Governor Ayo Fayose to stop what it called “sustained and relentless attacks on judges and the judiciary” because he had benefited from them in the past.
Following the ruling in the Akwa Ibom and Rivers governorship election petitions, Fayose was reported to have alleged that the tribunal judges “succumbed to federal might in nullifying the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) victories in favour of the APC.’’
In a statement on Sunday by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, the APC denounced Fayose for accusing somebody else of using federal might for electoral gains.
“We never knew that Fayose would be the one accusing anyone of using federal might for electoral advantage.
“Did Fayose take his conscience into consideration when Army officers and men were used by former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration to intimidate opponents in the June 21, 2014, governorship election?
