Fayose during his visit to Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adeyemo Adejugbe

LAGOS JULY 18TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose on Tuesday appeared in public for the first time since his deputy, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, lost the governorship election held on Saturday.
Olusola, who contested as the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, was defeated by the governor-elect, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, who ran on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Fayose visited the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adeyemo Adejugbe, on Thursday at his palace where he alleged that he and his supporters were still being persecuted by the Federal Government after losing election on Saturday.
The governor alleged that his security aides who were withdrawn on the eve of the election are yet to be restored, a situation he said has exposed him to danger.
He also claimed that about 400 PDP members are still being detained saying harassing him is not in the interest of democracy.
Fayose further told the Ewi that the Government House was invaded by security forces and his wife prevented from gaining access to their official residence after election on Saturday.
The Ewi sympathized with Fayose and promised that the traditional rulers would intervene and make representations to the appropriate authorities.
