The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has urged Ekiti people not to vote for the All Progressives Congress in the July 14 governorship election.

He said voting for the APC during the election was an invitation to chaos, killing, raping of people’s wives and daughters by the killer herdsmen which the APC harboured.

Fayose urged them to learn from daily killings by herdsmen in the APC-controlled states of Benue, Plateau, Zamfara, Kaduna and Nasarawa.

Fayose stated this during a meeting with teachers, civil servants and local government workers in Ado Ekiti.

In a press statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, on Wednesday, the governor called on the Ekiti people to reject the APC and its candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi, to avert Ekiti becoming another state where killings by herdsmen would start.

The governor said since the killings started, the Federal Government had not been able to stop them and the APC governors were being careful not to offend the Presidency.

“We all can see how the herdsmen have continued to daily kill, maim and rape innocent citizens. Even toddlers are not spared.

“In Zamfara State, for instance, Governor Abdulaziz Yari, who is also the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, recently said he was resigning as the Chief Security Officer of his state. The truth is that the governors know what to do but cannot do it because they don’t want to offend the Presidency.

“In Benue, the burial of the people killed by the herdsmen has become a daily occurrence. Many communities have been deserted and people now live in IDP camps and the governor has resigned to fate because it is an APC state.

“When the killer herdsmen invaded the farm of Chief Olu Falae, setting it ablaze, the governor couldn’t do anything because he did not want to offend the Presidency that helped him to power.

“In Kaduna, another APC state, the killer herdsmen and bandits are slaughtering the people like fowls and the government cannot stop it. This is for you to know that there is no APC controlled state where the herdsmen have not become a terror to the people.”

Fayose asked, “Is this the kind of situation you want in Ekiti?. Of course, the answer is No. I am very sure people can now see the difference between the PDP government and the APC.  The PDP was in power for 16 years and the security never became so moribund as it is now under the Buhari administration. The government is now noted for condemning but cannot stop the killings. Only insensitive people will vote for the APC.”
