The Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) members are bad losers.

The governor stated this while reacting to the rejection of the Ekiti State House of Assembly results by the APC , through a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, described the APC as bad losers.

According to him, “Like I always say, if APC wins election, that  election is perfect, if APC is defeated, the election has been rigged by the winner. In the imagination of APC, it is either the soldiers or the police rigged for the PDP,  or that thugs were deployed which locked the APC members in their houses, so that they couldn’t  come out to vote.

“The Ekiti APC is only trying to find excuse for its outright rejection by Ekiti people despite all attempts to demonise Ayo Fayose. They tried to ignite crisis so as to coerce INEC to postpone the election, but that did not work. The APC people are trying to explain away their third time defeat  by Ayo Fayose.

“It is the APC people that resorted to snatching of ballot boxes at polling booths. In Ilejemeje, Ikole, Efon, Ekiti West, the sinking APC members snatched ballot boxes, the contents were burned. These reports are with the police for necessary action.

“The victory of Governor Fayose has demonstrated his popularity  and a clear indication of the resolve of Ekiti people to defend the mandate given to him. Lastly, if APC has any complain, let them go to the tribunal.”
