Asked specifically on the alleged plan to declare a state of emergency in Rivers and Ekiti, he said, “They have been insinuating that too in Ekiti. We have been waiting for them. Power has gone beyond the leaders, power has gone back to the people.
“There certain things leaders will do today, you will ‘eat’ it tomorrow. You want to declare state of emergency, declare it and we will tell you that the state of emergency will not work too.’’
“Like I said to some people yesterday, if say Ekiti election nobody was slapped, nobody died, the person defeated congratulated the winner, do we now call this Rivers election, Rivers of Bloodgate?
“Because for a peaceful election in Ekiti and in Rivers, the military has got no business in our election.
