Ekiti gov polls manipulated, says Fayemi’s wife

The wife of Ekiti State Governor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, has said that events unfolding after the June 21 governorship election in the state suggest that the election was manipulated from ‘‘source.’’

Wife of Ekiti State Governor Mrs Bisi Fayemi 360x225 - Ekiti gov polls manipulated, says Fayemi’s wifeIn due course, she said that the full story of how the election was allegedly manipulated against Governor Kayode Fayemi would be revealed.

She bared her mind while delivering a keynote address at the 50th anniversary public lecture and award ceremony of the state chapter of the International Federation of Women Lawyers.

The theme of her address was “Women yesterday, today and tomorrow – the Ekiti experience.”

On the occasion, Governor Fayemi; a legal practitioner, Mrs. Funmi Falana; and the immediate past state President of the National Council of Women’s Societies, Mrs. Nike Obatayo, were given awards for their exemplary contributions to women rights and empowerment.

According to the governor’s wife, many armchair analysts and commentators have opined that the electorate embraced patronage, popularly known as ‘stomach infrastructure’ as opposed to sustainable development during the last elections.

She said, “I would like to state that we have not heard the last about the election. Two weeks after the immediate confusion and hysteria of the June 21 election, a picture has begun to emerge.

“This will, hopefully, reframe the debates emanating from and about Ekiti and the choices they allegedly made on that day.

“In due course, the full and real story of how the Ekiti election of June 21 was manipulated from source will be revealed. There are many implications for Ekiti people having voted the way they supposedly did.”

    I am not surprised. Wasn’t the overbearing influence of this woman in affairs of Government said to be one of the nemeisis of Governor Fayemi?

    She has acted true to type. Madam, your husband has conceded. Stick with your man as a good housewife with proper Africa upbringing and stop this divergent opinion. You are not the governor but the governor’s wife.

    Apart from that, quickly start to prepare for life outside first lady because Fayose will not divoice his wife for you. Adaptation is key here.
