The Social Democratic Party in Ekiti State strongly condems the shooting at the APC road walk embarked upon by the party and its candidate, Biodun Oyebanji at Ado Ekiiti, the Ekiti State capital yesterday.

This is a show of disgrace to the entire people of Ekiti State who are in high spirit to vote for the candidate of their choice in the forthcoming gubernatorial election.

How can a party and its candidate embark on such shooting right away from the Adetiloye hall where they converged before moving to the APC secretariat at Ajilosun, shooting sporadically to scare the good people of Ekiti State?

The show of shooting at yesterday’s road walk has further confirmed that the APC in Ekiti State and its candidate have been rejected by the people of Ekiti State.

“No amount of intimidation and harassment can change the mind and resolution of Ekiti electorate from forging ahead to transform it into reality in the forthcoming June 18 gubernatorial election.

The Social Democratic Party in Ekiti State advises the All Progressive Congress led government in Ekiti State to honour their electoral promises made to the people of Ekiti State without delay as resulting to intimidation will never change the mind of the electorate to vote for the popular candidate of their choice whom they believe will better their live again.

We now call on the security agents to be alert and proactive to check the violent excesses of these thugs in the name of politicking which we have been reporting them to the appropriate quarters right away from the attack on our candidate, Chief Segun Oni and SDP members at Efon Alaye Ekiti some weeks ago.
