Ekiti Assembly Rejects Governorship Election Result, Adjourns Till October by Ebullience(m): 6:14pm On Jul 17, 2018
The Ekiti State House of Assembly has adjourned legislative business until October 8, citing issues of harassment and insecurity.


The house, by the resolution, will only resume duties a week to the expiration of the tenure of the governor, Ayo Fayose.

The house also condemned and rejected the outcome of Saturday’s governorship election which produced Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress as governor.

The house is dominated by Mr Fayose’s Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members.

House Leader, Akinyele Olatunji, described the process leading to the election and final result as unfortunate.

Mr Akinyele condemned the alleged harassment of Mr Fayose, PDP leaders across the state and members of the state assembly by security personnel.


On the long break of the house, Mr Akinyele said, “the adjournment became imperative due to the political harassment of members by security agents.”

Also speaking, the Chairman House Committee on information, Samuel Omotoso, said the election of July 14 did not meet democratic standards.

According to him, the election was marred by “outright brigandage, vote buying and falsification of results.”

The Deputy Whip of the Assembly, Ekundayo Akinleye, remarked that the outcome of the election showed Nigerians should not expect free and fair 2019 general elections.

He alleged there were discrepancies in the final figures released by INEC.


The Speaker of the Assembly, Kola Oluwawole, described the election as a show of shame, with thugs and security agents allegedly openly working for the APC.

Mr Oluwawole said figures were brazenly doubled to favour the declared winner and expressed confidence that the stolen mandate would soon be retrieved.

Deliberation on the poll led to the passage of an eighth-point resolution which stated among other things that the election was heavily militarised with palpable fear on the faces of the electorate; that the security agencies compromised to the bidding of the APC; that the APC induced voters with money with connivance of the security agencies.


The House also held that there was ballot snatching by APC thugs, while PDP supporters were molested and chased out of polling booths and collation centres in open glare of security agents.

The lawmakers resolved that “the result of the governorship election stood rejected by the House.

“That the security agencies should vacate the entrance of the Government House where they were currently laying siege and also condemned the siege on the government owned radio and television outfits by armed military personnel.”

The house called on the security agencies not to hamper the work of the Ekiti State Government.

Very useless people. They should join Fayose in exile too when he runs away from the law after he hands over.

Politics of immaturity at play here. When Fayemi lost and handed power to Fayose, the house which had Fayemi's men in majority then,did not play this childish game.

When Fayose rode into town wearing a bulletproof,accompanied by the PDP led Federal Might,with hundreds of soldiers and policemen to wrest power from Fayemi, it was okay then right?

The next step is to vote all these members out in the next election. Thank you Ekiti State for making the right choice by voting Fayemi in as your Governor.

Fools, when had it turned to the level of houses of assemblies rejecting election results? I think I am hearing that for the first time, make them anounce another day for a new election now....Toothless dogs, no wonder Fayose is the Governor as well as the Speaker of house of assembly in the state.

It may interest you to know that by virtue of the last constitutional amendment, the Ekiti state House of assembly now enjoys full financial autonomy. Fayemu cannot put them in his pocket, rather, it is the other way round. Fayemu will do himself a world of good to tread softly.
