The Campaign organization of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Prof Kolapo Olusola, has condemned the attack on teachers in Emure Ekiti by thugs allegedly working for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
It said the miscreants were allegedly imported into the town by the APC candidate for the July 4 election, Kayode Fayemi.
Spokesperson of the Kolapo Olusola Campaign Organisation (KOCO), Lere Olayinka said one of the attacked teachers, Mr. Babalola, was beaten to stupor on Friday.
Olayinka, who noted that no amount of intimidation and harassment can stop APC from losing the poll next week, added that “Fayemi is further demonstrating that he hates teachers and will do anythingto make their lives impossible.”
He said, “Having been confronted with reality that teachers in the State won’t vote for Fayemi because of his demonstration of hatred against the teachers, they have now opted for attack, harassment and intimidation so as to scare the teachers from voting.”
He stated that it was funny that Fayemi, who desired votes from Ekiti people, was either arresting and detaining them or sending thugs to attack them.
“Is it those teachers that he is sending armed men of the DSS to arrest or thugs to brutalise that will vote for him?
“May be he does not need votes because what they have been saying is that they already have assurance from INEC for results to be writing and announced not minding results from polling units.
“However, we wish to call on Ekiti people, especially teachers to see this show of desperation by Fayemi as a phase that can never last.
“They should therefore go out to cast their votes on July 14, bearing in mind that these Egypt we are seeing today, by the end of July 14, we will see them no more,” he said.
