Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose recently released a press statement in response to the opposition party All Progressives Congress (APC)’s concern about the compulsory use of card reader in the upcoming election.
Fayose described their enthusiasm as a motive to cause an uproar during and after the election. He also stated that APC is particularly associated with promotion of violence, confusion and division in the country as opposed to PDP‘s aim to protect the well being and unity of Nigeria.
Ayo Fayose’s press statement reads;
The question now is: will the INEC provide power generators in each of the poling unit in the whole country so that by the time the battery is down the electoral officers could switch to the alternative power? Without this, the introduction of the card reader is nonsense.
So also when the governorship elections in Anambra and Edo States were conducted without card reader, APC didn’t raise a foot.
But now that they know there is no way its presidential candidate can win without rigging, they want Nigeria to see sense in the usage of card reader that had never be tested or acknowledged to be free from manipulation.
I can say boldly that the leadership of APC have hidden agenda in the usage of the card reader. That is why their clamour for it has been so vociferous when they know abinitio that there is no way their patty can win this election.
They are looking for preemptive excuses for violence during and after the election so that they can gain some undue sympathy whereas the usage of the card reader is not important to the election as the availability of security which they campaigned against like hell on earth.
