Ahead of June 21st Governorship election, Fayemi & Fayose share rice to electorates

Two prominent contenders of the upcoming Ekiti State Governorship election, incumbent Governor Kayode Fayemi and former Governor Ayo Fayose decided to show the people of Ekiti some love by sharing cooked and uncooked rice. Pictured above is an Ekiti State University student smiling with a bag of rice from Ayo Fayose...

Really? Sharing cooked rice? It tells you a lot about the state of the country if votes can be bought with cooked rice!

How about creating and sharing JOBS so we dont have to line up for cooked rice!

Oh Lord, please deliver us Nigerians... when you get votes because you gave the constituents rice, how will they ever rise up to voice their issues... I cant with all these politicians..
I never comment Linda, I just read but with the boko haram issue and many other simple problems that our politicians refuse to resolve, I had to say something.
What does your rice distribution have to do with how you will ensure good jobs, good roads, electricity, security and other basic amenities for the constituents????

Many are selling their destinies and future because of a bowl or bag of rice. Poverty stricken people.

chimaroke2000 said...

this is just a clear case of politicians taking advantage of the poverty in the land! when parents continue to produce kids they cannot cater for... this is always the result. Illiteracy, poverty and religion has always being the stumbling block to our democracy. It all starts from our diffrent homes, when there is no more, why wont someone smile when politicians give you rice bought with stolen monies... I quite sympathise with this country. Our politicians will continue to take advantage of the ignorance... If you educate your child and reduce the unecessary burdens that would impede it,... in future, we would have a crop of vibrant Nigerians who would stand up for their rights and take charge of their destiny. How I wish we would just emulate China and stop all these barbaric and wicked acts of bringing children in this world and leaving them to suffer... The multiplier effect is what we are seeing everywhere. SMH!

So nice of them to climb down from their high horses to share rice. The second anyone of them wins, it's 15 car convoys splashing mud on the common man while their overzealous security operatives harass people with impunity.

But of course, they're sharing rice....

Bribery and corruption smh for my country, if leaders and followers do the right things and everyone has access to the necessary things a government should give its people, sharing rice would be an insult to the people of Nigeria. Well corruption will not stop if we keep accepting rice, but you can't tell a hungry old lady or a woman who has hungry kids not to collect rice. Even if you don't collect they will still rig the election but remember let God and their dead conscience be the judge. At the end of your life, what would you gain if you collect all the rice and loose your soul... is it worth it?

Anon@5.50 I agree u with u. In addition these are elderly people, it seems very, very wrong that they have to queue up for a plate of food. It just makes me feel so sad for them and Nigerians in general. What sort of suffering will force an elderly person who has paid their dues to come and queue for rice aluminium plate in hand. God forbid evil. Was there no other dignified way to treat these mama and papa. Sharing food indeed. More like sharing poverty plus insult. Nonsense !

Anonymous said...

I beg to dissagree with this idea that both candidates are sharing rice. Though am no fan of Fayemi nor a supporter of Fayose I think the truth must be told. As for Fayemi he has been giving food and money to the Elderly for close to 3 years now. So we should not say he is just doing it during election because he has been doing his Owo and Ounje Arugbo since. For Fayose this is also one of the reasons the poor in Ekiti won't see that he is bad because he share money, food and other items to them. So do you blame the people for following Fayose who will give you half bag of rice, you eat and you are good as against Fayemi who is not doing so rather he prefer to be using the money to do road construction, poultry and many other developmental stuff which will not translate into. Food in the belly immediately. Fayemi's agenda is a long time thing and its rubish in our present day Nigeria.

Very funny! Jollof rice witout meat......na dat one be bag of rice? Na 3cups of rice I see oh

Giving rice and other items are part of campaign during electioneering period,bt d cooked one being shared is what I seems not to be totally subscribed to.....and the foolish ones who doesn't know the source w eat it....kai,poverty na wahala o

It is so sad that Nigerian politicians haven't grown beyond this poverty driven campaign. you only share rice to people when you are empty in all aspects and cannot rise above the populace to see where you must lead them if you eventually rig yourself into power.

This I guess is the first time I am seeing such in Nigerias politics. Sharing cooked and uncooked rice. I hope that rice will do you guys for the next four years. Nigerians! We are not ready for change that I can perceive! We let them buy our freedom, we let them buy our integrity! Challenge these politicians, surprise them! Let's be one! Reject their gifts and show them we are in for serious business. Because we have collected rice, we see the wrong things and behave like we haven't seen any. I don't blame them though, they believe we can be bought so they just decide to give us less than half a bag of rice! Well, no change is ready to begin!
