President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the last governorship election that produced the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, was characterised by “hanky-panky,” describing it as an unfortunate saga.
He, therefore, called on the leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress to do everything possible to ensure that they did not allow any subversion of the will of the people again.
Buhari said this while hosting the members of the APC South-West caucus to a dinner at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
All aspirants that contested the party ticket in Ekiti State with the winner, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, were also present at the dinner.
Buhari said it was not in his character to interfere in the internal workings of the APC because it was the responsibility of the party to conduct primaries for elective positions.
He said now that the party had completed that assignment and a candidate had emerged, the job of party leaders was to build a united front that could propel the party to victory in the election that he described as all important.
