Out-going governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has said Nigeria’s democracy is dead following the outcome of Osun state rerun election.
The Ekiti governor in a tweet on Friday, said the governorship election and the rerun were a show of shame.
The Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) declared the All Progressives Congress(APC) candidate, Gboyega Oyetola winner of the contest yesterday .
The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) almost clinched victory having led in the September 22nd governorship election until it was declared inconclusive by INEC over some irregularities .
Fayose in his tweet said it was safe to deduce from the just concluded Osun polls, that democracy is now dead in Nigeria.
With the show of shame that happened in last Saturday’s Osun state governorship election in general and the Thursday rerun in particular, there is no other conclusion to draw than that democracy is now dead in our beloved country.
