The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has accused the federal government of plotting to hide under the killings in Zamfara State by armed bandits to impose emergency rule on the state; warning “the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government cannot hide under its own failure to secure the lives of
Nigerians to achieve its selfish partisan agenda.”
The primary essence of having a government is to protect lives and properties of citizens, hence, with the gruesome oozing of blood across Zamfara state, It would be foolishness anyone from the state to vote in Apc in the forthcoming election. — feeling concerned

Fayose, who is the Southwest Coordinator of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council who made this known to Naija News trough his Media Aide Lere Olayinka earlier today alleged that the plot was a response to the insistence of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to allow the APC to field candidates for the 2019 general election in Zamfara State as a result of failure to comply
with the Electoral Act.
In a statement personally signed by him on Tuesday, the former governor alleged that the federal government plot was aimed at paving way for a fresh electoral process in the state so that APC can field candidates.
“With the emergency rule, there will only be Presidential and National Assembly elections in the state in February next year while governorship and State House of Assembly elections will be postponed till May,” he said.
He advised the federal government to admit its failure and apologise to the people of Zamfara State, who were left at the mercy of armed bandits, noting that “using the killings to achieve political goal is not only wicked but inhuman.”
Fayose said the federal government must be reminded that; “Under the PDP government of Dr Goodluck Jonathan, emergency rule was declared in three states in the Northeast without dismantling democratic

The former governor also urged the Zamfara state governor, Abdul-aziz Yari Abubakar to return home and stand up for his people instead of staying away and acting political correctness while his people are being killed.
He called on well meaning Nigerians to prevail on the APC led federal government to avoid jeopardising democracy in the country by going ahead with its plot to manipulate the 2019 general elections like it was done in the Ekiti and Osun States governorship elections.
