Ekiti Governorship Election: Goodluck Jonathan Urges Caution

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has called for caution on the activities of security agencies deployed in Ekiti ahead of Saturday’s Governorship election.
His appeal followed Wednesday’s alleged manhandling of many people, such as the Governor of the State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose in Ado-Ekiti, the State capital, allegedly by security operatives.

In a statement  issued by his spokesman, Mr. Ikechukwu Eze, the former President enjoined security personnel to do something within the ambit of the laws of the land, adding that the clear presence of armed security operatives was meant to provide voters the confidence in the future from election day and vote for candidates of the choice, and to not intimidate them.

He explained:  “I am appealing to the security agencies deployed to Ekiti State for the Governorship election to carry out their duties according to the laws of the land by securing the state in a manner that will enable a peaceful electoral process.

“If it is true that the State Governor Mr. Ayodele Fayose was assaulted as reported in the media, my appeal is that such should not be allowed to happen again, since the Governor’s constitutional immunity guarantees that he should be given official protection to freely conduct the business of governing the State.”

The former President further charged the Security agencies to keep law and , along with, prevent any development that can negatively affect the procedure of deepening the nation’s democracy.
