What are the issues?
What are the factors that characterized the election?
I schooled at University of Ado-Ekiti.
Worked in Ado Ekiti
Married in Ado Ekiti.
I witnessed Fayose-Oni-Fayemi-Fayose administrations.
So, i am rooted here.
So, i am at a vantage position of analysing voting behaviour/pattern of Ekiti people.
So, omo una kan o le wa ma pa iro mo wa l'ori.. Hell No.
Yes, it was on record that Prince Dayo Adeyeye stepped down for Fayose. But an insider told me that Fayose never committed himself of supporting Adeyeye in 2018.
Why did Fayose then changed his mind three years after that statement?
After PDP primary, Eleka emerged via Fayose's structures. Dayo Adeyeye left for APC. He did not just leave. He left with some bigwigs.
Cyril Fasuyi from Ido wws another big factor.
One is called Paso Osoko. The guy does not even know what is a "bill"
One is Olasca from Ido. That one nah Fuji musician.
Iya je wa oo.
Attempt to do something similar with Senator Raji Rasaki (Central) and Senator Olujimi (South) was met with stiffed opposition.
Again, Senator Raji Rasaki could not work with Emperor Fayose.
Thus, in just 3.5years, Emperor Fayose had lost
Prince Dayo Adeyeye
Senator Raji Rasaki
Barrister Owoseeni (His former attorney)
Sir/Ma, that decision did not go down well with most PDP members. E.g. Tosin Aluko became aggrieved in Ado.
They will tell u "who is Deji"?
Yes, she did not decamp but her body language speaks volume. Her supporters got her message loud and clear.
Ba ba nla scam.
Ise Ekiti people simply came out and carried out a protest votes against Fayose for denying their son twice: 2014/2018.
Adeyeye was a GAME CHANGER.
Dont forget, Eleka is not a politician. In fact, he is not even popular in Ikere if not because he was made the DG.
They were ready to spoil the votes in Ikere for APC. But that was not the major factor of Eleka's poor performance in Ikere.
It was the issue of Olukere vs Fayose tussle.
Fayose had issues with Olukere and at a point Emperor Fayose locked the king inside prison for 54days.
That was Eleka's problem in Ikere. Eleka too during this period was silent. Your king was dehumanized yet u keep quiet. Who does that pls?
What do u expect, the game was over.
BAFEM is from Omuo Ekiti. The rest was history.
Emperor Fayose lost a key figure there. Cyril Fasuyi. My brother and sister, that was all. Couple with how Fayose betrayed Baba Adeniran (Orin), Ido-Osi was lost 4 d 1st time.
Is politics not LOCAL?
From Ayo Arise in Oye
Dayo Adeyeye Ise
And hosts of others, Fayose became an isolated child.
You dare not challenge his authority.
See, all these factors got some people angry and the were waiting for July 14 to pay back.
In fact, they were patient with him. But at a point, they were tired of his gimmicks and lies on EKTV
LG 9months salaries
State workers 6months
They could not STOMACH the INFRASTRUCTURE again.
Pensioners could not give him their bloc votes.
Old citizens who were enjoying 5k from JKF 4yrs ago which Fayose stopped could not give him their bloc votes.
Meat sellers tax was increased. At a point, they went on strike in Ekiti. For one cow, u pay 1k. Imagine how many cows they kill everyday.
The application form does not even has a column showing which position u are applying form.
What kind of madness is that.
He sent the applicants 1,500 each to come to his rally so as to deceive the likes of Atiku that he has the state lock down.
And my SE brothers fell for it. Sad.
Pls, what do u guys expect?
4k each. Yet the idiot could not pay salary.
So, both parties shared money.
Was that the defining factor?
People were hungry. People collected part of their stolen money from both parties.
Am i justifying financial inducement during election? No.
But don't let us treat this issue of inducement in isolation. Something led to it.
I dey come.
At least, since 2003, i know that the Igbiras mostly from Kogi always support Fayose during election. And if there is any place u need to manipulate election in Ekiti, u have to go to those farm settlements populated by Igbiras
Again, emperor Fayose lost out.
However, the town witnessed a new life when JKF invested on Ikogosi project. New hotel was built. Actors/Actresses started visiting the place.
Boom. U can imagine the economic activities that greeted those towns around Ikogosi. Jobs were created.
My brothers and sisters, after emperor Fayose took over, that place is now DEAD.
Those villagers waited till July 14 and do the needful
Yes, u heard me LOUD and CLEAR.
Pls how do u convince them to vote for u.
He just doesn't care.
They lost the moment one ARROGANT, SELFISH, GREEDY and TYRANT man made the election about himself.
He is called AYODELE FAYOSE PETER THE ROCK
