APC have perfected plans to deactivate Voters Cards through a phony organisation – Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has alleged the All Progressives Congress (APC) that it has devised plot to disenfranchise thousands of eligible voters in the state through a phony organisation who will successfully deactivate Voters Cards.

In a statement personally signed, Fayose said that the APC was working to use the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) as a decoy and targeting Ado Ekiti, the State capital and Ikere Ekiti where the PDP candidate comes from.

He said: “The APC did not stop at this; they are currently distributing fake Empowerment Forms and cash to unsuspecting electorate, using a phony organisation, with the aim of deactivating Voters Cards, thereby disenfranchising thousands of voters.

“They are also putting pressure on INEC to use Incident Forms as alternative to the Smart Card Readers, so as to be able rig the July 14 election.

“It should be noted that Incident Forms not used during the Anambra election is being contemplated in Ekiti. The question is; what has changed?

“To heighten their game, the APC in collaboration with INEC are planning to heavily preload the Smart Card Readers and also release ballot papers to their members for ballot stuffing to justify the preload.

“The whole world is therefore placed on alert on the desperate bid of the APC to circumvent the will of Ekiti people at all cost, not minding the danger it portends for democracy in the country.

“We are raising this alarm to save this country from major consequences in the buildup to the 2019 general elections because the planned rigging of the Ekiti State election will serve as a prelude to their planned rigging of the elections, which is capable of plunging the country into avoidable anarchy.”
