Armed Thugs Surround Ekiti, as Fayose dares Lawmakers
by Senami Adaba
All roads leading into Ado Ekiti have been blocked this morning by armed thugs and supporters of Governor Peter Ayodele Fayose in an attempt to stop the strong impeachment threats trailing the Ekiti state governor by the APC lawmakers at the state house of representatives.
In an earlier development, Governor Fayose had openly dismissed the impeachment notice posted online by the All Progressives Congress (APC) law makers in the state house of assembly, saying as far as he was concerned no one had served him any impeachment notice.
The somewhat controversial governor made this known publicly while speaking on a TV programme “Meet Your Governor”, aired by EKTV and National Television Authority (NTA) on Monday, 6 April 2015.
Nineteen APC lawmakers in the State had issued a notice of impeachment to the governor, giving him 7 days to respond to the allegations of gross misconduct against him and his deputy.
Governor Fayose identified those plotting his impeachment as the same enemies of Ekiti State that plotted his exit from office in 2006. But denies that he had been served any notice directly: “Nobody served me any impeachment notice. I only saw the notice online like every other person.”
Fayose, who described himself as an Israeli, said: “I’m like Israel that is in the midst of enemies but will always prevail. Whoever wants to remove me will first have to impeach God.”
He insisted that APC members were trying to get at him because he wholeheartedly supported President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election bid.
“They are doing all these just to get at me because of my support for President Jonathan and I have no regret for supporting the president.
“Let me say it again, I have not been served any impeachment notice. The House of Assembly is also on recess and Dr Adewale Omirin is not the speaker of the State House of Assembly.”
Governor Fayose stated and also added that come April 11, APC will be defeated.
