The former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole has accused the governor of Ekiti State and presidential aspirant, Kayode Fayemi of asking him to commit electoral fraud while in office as party chairman.
Oshiomhole stated this while speaking on his days as the national chairman in an interview on Channels TV.
He claimed that Fayemi asked him to impose candidates whenever he says this is the person he wants to emerge.
According to Oshiomhole, he told Fayemi that he can not be used as an instrument of fraud.
The former Edo State Governor claimed that he left his position as the Chairman of the ruling party with honour.
Oshiomhole said, “I said it in one of the meetings I had with governor Kayode Fayemi who told me bluntly to my face that, “chairman, what we are saying is, you can go and conduct an election to fulfil all righteousness, but when we say this is the person that should emerge, just make sure he is the person that emerges’.
“And I told governor Fayemi that, ‘that would be your own portion, not me’. I cannot be used as an instrument of fraud, to invite people to buy forms when I have already decided, regardless of how people will vote, this is the man that will prevail.
“You want to use me for such a purpose, I said no, I said at worst, if you find the number to get rid of me, I will rather leave the job with my honour than sacrifice my honour to keep the job.”
