Ekiti people troop out for Buhari, Fayemi, defy Fayose’s orders
 News photo Hi 247  - The people of Ekiti state gave an indication of their voting intention on Tuesday when they defied the orders by outgoing Governor Ayodele Fayose of the Peoples Democratic Party, ordering busesand taxis off the roads and urging residents in the state capital of Ado-Ekiti to stay at home and snub visiting President Muhammadu Buhari.

Buhari was in Ado-Ekiti to attend the grand finale of All Progressives Congress candidate Dr. Kayode Fayemi’s campaign for the governorship seat, in the election holding on Saturday 14 July. Fayose’s deputy, Prof. Kolapo Olubunmi Olusola-Eleka is Fayemi’s main challenger.

NAN reports that many residents of the state capital ignored Fayose’s orders made in a broadcast earlier in the day.

The governor had directed commercial drivers and motorcyclists to withdraw their services, until 4pm, from the roads. He also ordered that public offices and major markets in the city be closed and residents to stay indoors to slight the visiting president.
