Amaechi, Oshiomole Prevented from travelling to Ekiti
Two All Progressives Congress (APC) governors were on Thursday prevented by security officers from travelling to Ekiti. The governors were scheduled to attend Governor Kayode Fayemi’s final gubernatorial campaign rally on Friday.
The affected governors were Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State and Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State.
Oshiomhole’s chartered helicopter was allegedly prevented from taking off from Benin Airport; while Amaechi was reportedly stopped on his way from Akure to Ekiti.
The Governorship election, which is billed to be a close contest between incumbent Fayemi of APC and former governor Ayodele Fayose of PDP, is scheduled for Saturday. Opeyemi Bamidele of the Labour Party also has an outside chance.
