ECHO EMMANUEL: By far, APC is Deadlier Than Boko Haram & Taliban Combined 💀☠💀 !!!

Woe betide any soul that still believe in the disastrous change of the ruling party.

Governance is not a tea cup party, neither its a voodoo. APC is dead on arrival because they are full of vendetta against the common masses not just PDP

APC and their cohorts have taken us backward to the medieval era that was characterized by unabated killings, porous borders, sinking economy, intertribal and ethno religious clashes.

The good news is that, their days are numbered. Let our PVC do the cleansing. The same wizardry brooms they brought shall be used to wade them off to pit of hell.

In an unjust society, silence is a crime.

Together we shall redeem our fatherland from those usurpers.

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mallam Yusuf Ali, said the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate in last Saturday’s governorship election in Ekiti State, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, has asked him to lead his legal team to challenge the victory of Governor-elect, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, at the election tribunal.

Olusola, who lost the election to Fayemi, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, according to the results released by the Independent National Electoral Commission, has vowed to challenge the poll outcome.

Fayemi, a former governor of the state, defeated Olusola in 12 out of the 16 local government areas of the state, polling 197,459 votes while Olusola scored 178,121 votes.

Ali told SUNDAY PUNCH on Friday that he had accepted to lead other senior lawyers to reclaim Olusola’s mandate.

The senior advocate however said he would need to discuss details of the brief with his client to know the grounds upon which the candidate was contesting the poll results.

Ali added that he would not be able to give an accurate figure of other lawyers that would join him in the legal battle against the APC candidate.

He said, “I have just been contacted to represent the PDP (at the tribunal). The (legal) team is just being put together; so, I don’t know the number of SANs and other lawyers that will work with me yet because it is the client that will determine who they want to bring on board.

“On the grounds of the petition, I was just briefed (to take up the matter); we would need to engage in further discussions before I will know exactly what is involved.”
Meanwhile, the three-man panel for the Ekiti State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal has been set up to sit on the disputes arising from the July 14 governorship election in the state, SUNDAY PUNCH has learnt.

Tribunal constituted before election –A’court

Meanwhile, the three-man panel for the Ekiti State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal has been set up to sit on the disputes arising from the July 14 governorship election in the state, SUNDAY PUNCH has learnt.

The President of the Court of Appeal, Justice, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, is empowered to constitute the election petitions tribunals for governorship as well as for state and National Assembly elections.

The Head, Media and Publicity Unit of the Court of Appeal, Mrs. Sa’adatu Musa, responding to an inquiry by SUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday, said the tribunal for the Ekiti State governorship election was constituted two weeks before the election held on July 14.

“The Ekiti State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal was set up two weeks before the election,” Musa said in a text message in response to one of our correspondents’ enquiry.

Section 133 (3)(a) of the Electoral Act provides that the tribunal “shall be constituted not later than 14 days before the election.”

The registry of the Ekiti State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal was said to have been opened in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, one week after it was constituted.

By virtue of Section 134(1) of the law, an election petition to challenge the validity of an election must be filed within 21 days after the date of the declaration of results.

“An election petition shall be filed within 21 days after the date of the declaration of results of the elections,” the law states.

With the result of the election declared one week ago, it implies that aggrieved persons have only two weeks left within which to file their petitions before the tribunal to challenge the outcome of the poll.

Section 134(2) of the Electoral Act provides that “an election tribunal shall deliver its judgment in writing within 180 days from the date of the filing of the petition.”

Olusola had, on Sunday, alleged that he was robbed of victory in an election he claimed to have received over 70 per cent of the votes, having won in almost all the 16 local government areas of the state.
At a press conference after INEC declared Fayemi the winner on Sunday, the PDP candidate, who is the deputy governor of the state, alleged that security agencies threw all caution to the wind by taking sides with the APC and Fayemi.

He accused security agencies of not only supporting but also supervising the indiscriminate arrest of PDP leaders and agents while also harassing voters on a massive scale, especially in Ado Ekiti, Ikere and other places.
He equally alleged that security agencies gave tacit and active cover for thugs imported into Ekiti by the APC to snatch ballot boxes, create confusion, cause mayhem, and drive away voters in PDP strongholds.

“INEC, on its own part, reneged on its promise to have results counted, declared and pasted on the wall of each polling station. There was nowhere INEC transmitted results from the polling centres as earlier promised.

“Ballot boxes were illegally moved to INEC offices while our agents were disallowed from following the process,” he stated.

THE END DOESN’T ONLY JUSTIFY THE MEANS BUT THE WILL OF EKITI PEOPLE IS DONE.

APC forgot this popular adage of once bitten, twice shy over fayemi’s failure in Ekiti.
Ekiti people still suffer from the damage done by the prodigal son fayemi during his first tenure which is nothing but a total failure. The people of Ekiti strongly believe in Dr Ayodele Fayose’s legacies and his continuity plan of his successor Prof Olusola Eleka candidacy.
The recent intimidation in Ekiti shows how weak our democracy is under oligarchy and dictatorship APC government with the allege siege of Ekiti state government house and also bullying of PDP members across the state.
If Gov Ayodele Fayose who is the chief security officer of Ekiti can be treated in that ugly and terrible manner what is the fate of the electorates who want to exercise their civic responsibility. It’s gruesome and damaging the democratic reputation of Nigeria at the international stage.
What APC government refuse to know is that they have showed the whole world they lack the power to rule and also attracting international community sanctions and also observation of the general poll which we are very happy with. We can endure and also don’t mind what APC government plans before any election but what we all care about is how to end APC in Ekiti, Osun and also all elections slated for 2019 without fear.
No matter the alarming intimidations and humiliations of Ekiti people before and tomorrow(Saturday) their effort to vote PDP is still unshaken and they are ready to send APC menace from forcefully taking power in the state.
The desperation of APC government to forcefully take over Ekiti is written all over them from the failed congresses and national convention in the country to the internal crisis splitting the ruling party to different faction of R-APC and N-PDP and also the mobilization of people from different state to the flop mega rally held days back in Ekiti is more than just reasons to convince everyone that they are going to fail.
During president Jonathan’s government,all security agencies worked together to ensure peace before and after election without unlawful arrest or detaining of anyone.
But over that last few days we have seen several arrest and forceful abduction of people by DSS all over the state and also the arrest of a printer in Lagos over nothing which shows an act of desperation by APC.

The recent teargas attack on Gov Fayose and Ekiti indigenes show APC is purely undemocratic, unlawful and a bad loser. The images that emerge after the incident shows what Nigeria will face in few months to Osun election and general poll of 2019 except international community interferes.
Since the beginning of APC government at the top, various allegations of violation of human rights has been made all over the country and if they think we won’t react they should wait till Saturday when Ekiti people will be more than ready to exercise their No1 civic duty which is their franchise.
The deployment of heavily armed security and also military hardwares to put fear in the mind of Ekiti indigenes and also mitigate that voting power of the masses won’t work and also the rigging plans because Ekiti people won’t give a chance for APC(Fayemi) to steal their mandate as it was done in Osun in the last gubernatorial election. If APC plans what was done in Anambra in Ekiti they will still fail because they failed there.
Ekiti is made up of elite and courageous people and this Saturday will be a day to decide. The next four years of positive continuity of the legacies of Gov Ayodele Fayose and not next four year of agony and failure of Fayemi’s APC.
The APC government all over the country shows the inability and incapability to rule and govern at all levels from Osun,Oyo, Ogun, kogi,kwara,Imo, just to mention few and also at the federal level.
Ekiti indigenes are more than ready without *FEAR and NEPOTISM* to vote Prof Eleka the next governor of Ekiti.
*We should not show any fear but anger to vote PDP and vote Ekiti state progress not APC government who have showed us they are less concerned about you,who victimize you with security personnel,who is ready to bring cattle colony and Fulani herdsmen terrorists to you and your family.*
*Also don’t vote a man who once failed you and don’t vote a government who don’t know what it takes to make democracy a reality.*
I will advice Fayemi and his APC entourage to take defeat with the spirit of sportsmanship and also tell president Buhari to please reserve the slot Fayemi vacated not long because he is going back to Abuja to take his post as minister for solid mineral.
*In real democracy, Government are afraid of people not people to be afraid of government but in APC government its vice versa*

We are more than ready and everyone across the country with PDP family,

Wishes Ekiti people best of luck

Wishes Eleka the people’s choice best of luck

Wishes Gov Ayodele Fayose the osoko of Ekiti best of luck

Wishes PDP family in Ekiti and Nigeria best of luck

Wishes lovers of democracy best of luck

Our victory
Our mandate
Our freedom

Our prayers are with you and Almighty God will grant every electorates and Ekiti people safety and our victory is around the corner July 14 is the date.
God bless

Eleka for Ekiti
Ekiti for Eleka.

PDP power!
PDP power!!
PDP power to the people!!!

Ekiti Election Fayose’s harassment is shameful and undemocratic – Dankwambo

Gombe state governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo has described the alleged harassment of Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose as shameful and undemocratic.
