Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) Chairman, Prof. Itse Sagay, SAN, has advised governor Ayodele Fasose to accept the results and not go to court over the outcome of 2018 Ekiti state governorship election.
Sagay said, “When the PDP rigged the election in 2014 Fayose did not complain but is now crying foul because the results don’t favor him. I think Ekiti people have restored their sense of self-respect and dignity because to have elected a Fayose was a self-inflicted insult and he insulted them by saying he won the election on the grounds of promising them stomach infrastructure.
“It was a very big insult because what he was saying is that the Ekiti people live solely for the sake of eating. That is why stomach infrastructure was a very big insult. And he insulted them for four years; he ran the state down. So, this election was a way of voting Fayose out because I don’t think his deputy was the real candidate. In voting out Fayose, Ekiti people have restored their sense of self-respect and we will no longer call them stomach infrastructure state but as a serious people who look at their progress instead of food.”
