The Kayode Fayemi Campaign Organization has accused the Ekiti State University and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of aiding Governor Ayodele Fayose to rig the Ekiti State governorship election scheduled for Saturday.
A statement on Thursday by the Director of Media and Publicity of the Fayemi Campaign Organization, Wole Olujobi, said Fayose had concluded to sack the Vice Chancellor of Ekiti State University (EKSU) unless he delivers 10,000 votes to PDP from the school.
He warned the EKSU VC and INEC against cooking up figures in favour of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Kolapo Olusola.
Alleging that the leadership of the university was under strict instruction by Fayose to deliver 10,000 votes to PDP, Olujobi said: “We are in possession of credible information that the unnecessary shifts in students’ examinations schedule was informed by fraudulent plot to manipulate election results in EKSU to make the figures that will emerge from the school look real and credible.
“Students are supposed to conclude their examinations on July 12 and immediately vacate the campus for their homes before the election on July 14.
“But because of the sinister motives by Governor Ayodele Fayose, he forced the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Samuel Oye Bandele, to shift the remaining parts of students examinations till after July 14, the day of the governorship, to enable him carry out his plan to deliver the planned 10,000 votes and justify the figures with the presence of students on campus.
“We are also in possession of information bordering on threat that if the Vice Chancellor hopes to keep his job, he as the head of the school must deliver 10,000 votes to PDP and it is on the basis of this that examinations dates were altered to carry out the plot.
“By this statement, we put both Prof. Bandele and INEC on notice that we are aware of the plot and we want to counsel both INEC officials and the vice chancellor that they should not get themselves involved in a crime that will make them end their careers in jail.”
Boasting that their interactions with students and staff of the university suggested that they would vote against Fayose’s candidate, Olujobi further read: “Our interactions with both staff and students have suggested that they will vote against Fayose’s candidate, Prof. Olusola Eleka, because of alleged anti-people policies of Fayose’s administration, including tax burden on varsity staff, non-payment of salaries and allowances, exorbitant school fees, non-payment of subvention and infrastructure decay, among others, which Eleka hopes to inherit and sustain.”
Warning Fayose to stop daydreaming that Eleka would be the next governor to protect him after leaving the office, Olujobi said the success of Fayemi’s mega rally, on Tuesday, had proven conclusively that Fayose had lost grounds.
He called on security agencies and observers to pay attention to elections in EKSU and urged voters to be vigilant and guide their votes against manipulation.
Celebrity Butt-enhancement Surgeon, Dr Bumbum Arrested Over Death Of Patient (Photo)
His mother, accused of being an accomplice, was also arrested. Furtado was considered capable of performing magic on women’s bodies, in particular their bottoms, and became known throughout the country for his expertise.
The 45-year-old’s Instagram account reflects his popularity with 650,000 followers. But he had been on the run since Sunday over the death of a bank employee named Lilian Quezia Calixto, who perished hours after a buttock enlargement procedure at Furtado’s home in the upmarket Barra de Tijuca neighbourhood of Rio.
Calixto had travelled 1,250 miles from her home to see the surgeon. She underwent surgery on Saturday and started feeling sick soon thereafter.
Upon arriving at hospital on Sunday, she was suffering from a racing heart-beat and hypertension, and after four heart attacks she died.
Soon after, Furtado disappeared. He now faces charges of homicide and criminal association. Furtado used a controversial technique in his buttock improvement surgery, injecting a substance called acrylic glass.
The news has caused shockwaves throughout the industry Brazil is second only to the United States for the number of plastic surgeries carried out.
The Brazilian Plastic Surgery Society (SBPC) was quick to denounce Furtado, saying “the growing invasion of non-specialists in the specialty has provoked more and more fatalities like this one.”
“You cannot perform plastic surgery inside an apartment. Many people are selling a dream, a fantasy to patients in an unethical way and people, weakened, are often attracted to low prices, without considering whether or not the conditions are adequate,” SBPC president Niveo Steffen told AFP.
Steffen said the injection of synthetic biopolymers or polymers, like acrylic glass, is very dangerous and has caused dozens of deaths among women in Latin America, especially in Venezuela.
Buhari ‘Begs’ Saraki Not To Leave APC
During his meeting with Senate President Bukola Saraki, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and some All Progressives Congress (APC) governors on Thursday, President Muhammadu Buhari begged the nation’s number-three man not to leave the ruling party, THISDAY is reporting.
Kayode Fayemi, the soon-to-be Governor of Ekiti State, attended as well.
In its report on the meeting, THISDAY said the President appealed to Saraki, believed to be the arrowhead of the impending mass movement, to stay back in the party.
The paper reported that Saraki’s meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa was set up by APC governors, including Alhaji Aminu Masari (Katsina State), Senator Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun State) and Senator Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi State), who, after initial discussions with the Senate President at his Abuja residence on Wednesday night, prevailed on the President to meet with him and persuade him not to defect from the party.
It said Adams Oshiomhole, the APC National Chairman, also spent much of Monday at Saraki’s house trying to straighten things out, followed by another meeting with Saraki in Ilorin on Wednesday by the Deputy National Chairman (South), Chief Niyi Adebayo, who led a delegation on a fence mending mission.
Buhari is also expected to meet with Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House of Representatives, around the weekend.
Saraki is still expected to join the PDP next week. Expected to move with him are Governors Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State and Ahmed Abdulfatah of Kwara State.
Samuel Ortom of Benue State, who was looking good to defect as well having already announced his departure from APC on Monday saying he had been “red-carded”, made an about-face on Thursday after meeting with Oshiomhole.

British police identify Skripal attack suspects
British police believe they have identified the suspects responsible for the attack on former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter with the nerve agent Novichok, the Press Association (PA) reported Thursday.
Several Russians were involved in the attempted murders, a source with knowledge of the investigation told PA, adding that their identities were confirmed by cross-checking security footage with records of people entering the country around that time.
Britain has repeatedly accused Russia of being responsible for the attack, which Russia denies.
The report comes ahead of an inquest into the death of Dawn Sturgess, 44, who died earlier this month after coming into contact with a Novichok-type nerve agent on June 29.
The nerve agent was present in a bottle found at the Amesbury home of her partner Charlie Rowley, 45, who remains in critical condition in hospital.
Skripal and his daughter were found collapsed in Salisbury – about 10 kilometres from Amesbury – in March after they were poisoned with Novichok. Both later recovered.
