Ekiti PDP condemns EFCC invasion of Fayose’s residence

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has condemned the
invasion of the Afao Ekiti residence of the immediate past Governor of
the State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, saying no amount of intimidation can
break the will of Nigerians to vote out the APC government of
President Muhammadu Buhari.

The party said armed operatives of the EFCC stormed Fayose’s residence
a few minutes ago to conduct a search, claiming that he was in the
custody of fund meant for the PDP in the Southwest, since he is the
Coordinator of the Atiku/Obi Presidential Campaign Council in the
zone.

According to its Publicity Secretary, Jackson Adebayo, the PDP said
subjecting the former governor and his guests to that level of
harassment and oppression just because of tomorrow’s elections was the
height of desperation by the APC government.

The PDP said no amount of intimidation will prevent the people from
coming out tomorrow to vote against a government that has impoverished
them for more than three years.

It commended youths in Afao Ekiti for trouping out enmasse in
solidarity with the former governor, adding that the peaceful conduct
of youths even when provoked by the EFCC operatives was commendable.

The party called on all well meaning Nigerians as well as the
international community to prevail on the APC to stop using
instruments of government to harass, intimidate and oppress Nigerians
perceived as not being on the same page with its clueless government.
