Ekiti guber: PDP candidate condemns Fayemi over thugs attack on teachers

Campaign organization of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Prof Kolapo Olusola Eleka, has condemned the attack on teachers in Emure Ekiti by the alleged All Progressives Congress (APC) thugs.

  Spokesperson of the Kolapo Olusola Campaign Organisation (KOCO), Lere Olayinka, said that one of the attacked teachers,  Mr. Babalola Ayo, was attacked yesterday, and beaten to stupor by thugs imported to Emure Ekiti by the APC candidate,  Dr. Kayode Fayemi.

  Olayinka, who said no amount of intimidation and harassment could stop APC from losing the July 14 governorship election, added, "Fayemi is further demonstrating that he hates teachers and will do anything to make their lives impossible.

  "Having been confronted with reality that teachers in the state won't vote for Fayemi because of his demonstration of hatred against the teachers, they have now opted for attack, harassment and intimidation so as to scare the teachers from voting."

  Olayinka said that it was funny that Fayemi, who desired votes from Ekiti people is either arresting and detaining them or sending thugs to attack them.

  "Is it those teachers that he is sending armed men of the DSS to arrest or thugs to brutalise that will vote for him?

  "May be he does not need votes because what they have been saying is that they already have assurance from INEC for results to be written and announced not minding results from polling units.

  "However,  we wish to call on Ekiti people,  especially teachers to see this show of desperation by Fayemi as a phase that can never last.

They should therefore go out  to cast their votes on July 14, bearing in mind that these Egypt we are seeing today,  by the end of July 14, we will see them no more."
