Former Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on Thursday said that some soldiers were willing to testify in support of the leaked audio recording on how top government officials connived with the military to rig the June 21, 2014 governorship election in Ekiti State.
The audio recording, first released by Sahara Reporters, purportedly had conversations on how Ekiti Governor, Ayodele Fayose; former Minister of State for Defence, Mr. Musiliu Obanikoro; Sen. Iyiola Omisore; Minister of Police Affairs, Mr. Jelili Adesiyan and the military allegedly rigged the poll.
Speaking on a live programme, “APC Change Hour,” on Akure based radio, Adaba 88.9 FM, Fayemi said: “We are taking every step to ensure this does not go unpunished. There are many soldiers willing to testify.
“There are many Captain Sagir Kolis who are willing to give evidence in the court of law. I am just appealing to all Nigerians to be patient as events unfold.”
Stressing that the All Progressives Congress would resist militarisation of the forthcoming elections, Fayemi added:“We in the APC will not allow the use of the military to oversee the conduct of the elections because we know and we are aware that they have sown fake police uniforms, they have sown fake army uniforms but we will not allow them”
