Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo has described the attack on Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose as shameful and undemocratic.
Dankwambo’s assertion observed manhandling of some supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, consisting of the Governor of the State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose in Ado-Ekiti, the State capital, allegedly via protection operatives on Wednesday.
Reacting to the development, which has been extensively condemned, Dankwambo said the strive by way of APC to rig Saturday’s election will be resisted.
He referred to that there would be no need for deployment of 300,000 policemen if public institutions have been independent.
Dankwambo on his official Twitter page wrote “Just got off the phone with my brother, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State. He has briefed me on the ongoing harassment by security operatives. What is happening in Ekiti state is shameful and undemocratic.
“The attempt by the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress to subvert the will of the people on Saturday in Ekiti will be resisted.
“If we strengthen our public institutions to be effective and independent, we won’t be needing 30,000 Police Officers and 4,000 soldiers to ensure a free, fair and credible election.”
