Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)/Presidential aspirant, Atiku Abubakar has disclosed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) should be ready to taste from the cup of defeat in the July 14 Ekiti State Governorship elections.
Atiku made this assertion on Monday when he met with outgoing Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose alongside with some members of the PDP Governorship Campaign Council at Government House, Ayoba Villa, Ado Ekiti.
Some of the key members on board include
Deputy President of the Senate, Ike
Ekweremadu, former Senate President, David Mark, former Kano State Governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, his Ogun State counterpart, Gbenga Daniel and Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe.
He said: “We are satisfied that the PDP is prepared for this election. We hope that the APC will accept the outcome of the election. They should be democratic for the first time.
“We have seen how democratic they are, but for the first time in 2015, we have opposition party taking over from the ruling party. We expect them to do the same.”
Fayose alleged that the APC was planning to rig the election “having been rejected by the people,” saying the PDP had already won the election.
He said: “They (PDP leaders) are here because they know that PDP has won this election. Everyone is on the same page with us. The only thing the APC is holding on to is to rig the election. We have told INEC that this is a pointer to the 2019 election. They should save their image.
