Ado PDP withdraws from Council election, says EKSIEC, Govt lack credibility

The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ado Local Government has said members of the party will not participate in the local government elections in Ekiti State slated for December, saying they will not allow the State Governor, Kayode Fayemi to use them to achieve his aim of siphoning the state funds further and buy credibility for a predetermined process.

In a statement made available to newsmen on Wednesday in Ado Ekiti by

Hon Yinka Olomofe on behalf of Council of Ado-Ekiti PDP Stakeholders, the Council said Chairman of the State Independent Electoral Commission, Justice Aladejana (rtd) lacked the moral impetus to superintend over body as sensitive as EKSIEC.

“The integrity of the man named as the Chairman of State Independent

Electoral Commission is in doubt. A man suspended as Chief Judge of

the state due to his professional misconduct lacks moral standing to

conduct a free and fair elections,” the statement read in part.

The PDP leadership in Ado Local Government also alleged that the State

Independent Electoral Commission was peopled by card carrying members

of the APC, who were under strict instructions from Dr. Kayode Fayemi

to declare all APC candidates as winners of the elections and thus will not embark on a journey to nowhere.

The statement said Ado Ekiti PDP leadership frowned at Dr. Fayemi’s plan to siphon Ekiti State to the tune of N5 billion, using EKSIEC as a conduit in a predetermined exercise.

“We also frown at the ridiculous amount of money which is said to be about N5 billion purportedly allocated for this shoddy exercise. We will not participate in an exercise which is solely aimed at siphoning the state’s scarce resources”, it read.

Describing the emergence of APC candidates as an action erected on

need for political patronage, Olomofe said Ado Local Government PDP

will resist the attempt to use it to assert credibility on a venture

aimed at looting Ekiti people.

“The issues surrounding the outcomes of the primary elections in APC

suggests that Governor Fayemi handpicked his ward coordinators during

the last governorship elections as councillorship candidates of the


“An election predetermined to payback supporters of Fayemi in APC

cannot enjoy our participation. We will not give unnecessary

credibility to an  election with a predetermined outcome”.

Citing its resolve not to endanger the lives of its members as another

reason the PDP will not be participating, Olomofe charged PDP members

to continue to prepare for the 2022 governorship election, which will

attract the attention of men of conscience from across the world, a

factor that will limit to a large extent APC penchant for electoral

manipulations and violence.

“APC members in Ado-Ekiti have reliably informed us that the governor

has directed his political thugs especially transport workers to

matchet, shoot or kill anyone that stands on their way before, during

and after elections.

“The aggrieved APC members told us that the party leadership is aware

of the non-popularity of their chairmanship candidate who is renowned

for her Kleptomaniac life style. Although we were urged to participate

because of the overwhelming popularity of our party in Ado-Ekiti, but

we will not endanger the lives and properties of the innocent

residents of Ado-Ekiti because of an election with a predetermined


“We therefore urge our members to continue preparing for 2022governorship elections which is our focus and allow Kayode Fayemi and

his political thugs continue their peculiar mess which by the grace of

God will come to an end very soon”, the statement read.
