Fayose who joined the PDP candidate Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) during the campaign tour of the state capital, led the supporters in solidarity songs with the cheering crowd.
He alleged that the federal government was planning to rig the election for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN).
He said: “You have to stand strong on Saturday. Votes must be counted in your presence. There is a difference between a struggle and a movement. Both are different from (political) parties. The movement is that Eyitayo must be governor of Ondo state.”
Meanwhile, the Ondo state government has declared Friday (today) as public holiday to enable workers to prepare for Saturday’s governorship election.
The government, in a statement issued by the state Head of Service, Toyin Akinkuotu, directed the heads of the MDAs to inform workers in their offices.
