Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, has mocked the disruption of Saturday's All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primaries by thugs allegedly loyal to one of the aspirants.
The voting exercise in the governorship primaries of the APC in Ekiti was disrupted on Saturday by some protesters at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, Ado-Ekiti, venue of the exercise.
The protesters had alleged that attempts were being made by some party officials to compromise the process.
Reacting, Fayose took to his Twitter handle to describe APC members as "hypocrites and enemies of democracy" adding that the party is a house divided against itself.
He wrote, "The whole world can now see the so-called progressives. Ordinary primary election, the APC could not hold here in Ekiti. These people are hypocrites and enemies of democracy, masquerading as progressives.
"Their party is a house divided against itself, its center will never hold.
"If they could be this violent during their own primary election, won't they do worse things during the election proper?
"INEC must be mindful of being used to manipulate the July 14 election in favour of APC. More so that they have by their conduct today, failed themselves."
