The Fayose Campaign has dismissed insinuations by the APC that Vice President Namadi Sambo claimed that the Ekiti and Osun gubernatorial elections would be prosecuted like a war.

The director-general of the Ayo Fayose Campaign, Chief Dipo Anisulowo told Vanguard that the vice-president never made the statement attributed to him even as he flayed the Kayode Fayemi campaign for allegedly importing foreign hands to bolster its campaign.

“The Vice President is a responsible person and he never used the word ‘war’. I am very much aware of that and he did not use the word capture,” Ansulowo said.
“They should disabuse their mind. We are going to win but I can assure you that it is going to be through a free and fair election.”

Accusing the incumbent administration of monopolizing the state’s facilities including stadia for its reelection campaign and importing foreigners to bolster its ranks, he said:
“It is very unfortunate that the governor refused to grant that request in the first instance. Having regard to the fact that the stadium was built with taxpayers’ money.”

“The last time he (Fayemi) hosted people there, most of those who came were foreigners, they are not even from Ekiti state. So, why should he deny us of the usage of the stadium?”
