Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state is condemning what he describes as the militarisation of legislative re-run elections in Rivers state. Governor Fayose was speaking on the sidelines of the Nation’s Economic Summit in Abuja. The violent approach of political gladiators in the recent legislative rerun elections in Rivers state has been described as minus in the annals of Nigeria democratic experience.
The main political parties have continued to trade blame on the perpetrators of the unrest across the state. But Governor Fayose believes the violence is a violation of the right of electorate to choose who they want.
