Ekiti Reps members-elect caution APC against continued feud with Fayose
ELECTED House of Representatives members from Ekiti State have warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state to stop fighting Governor Ayodele Fayose and allow peace to reign.
The lawmakers-elect, who said it was worrisome that after the failed plot by the APC members of the state House of Assembly to illegally impeach Governor Fayose and his deputy, Dr. Kolapo Olusola, the party was still unrelenting in its fight against the governor.
In a statement signed by the six Reps’ members-elect, Ayo Oladimeji, Segun Adekola, Akin Awodumila, Olamide Oni, Thaddeus Aina and Kehinde Agboola, APC and its leaders in Ekiti State were admonished to let peace reign in the state.
They said: “Having fought for twelve months (July 2014 to June 2015) trying to get what they lost at the polls through the backdoor, the most sensible thing for the APC leaders to do now is to allow Governor Fayose run his government while the party prepares for 2018.
“Telling lies and engaging in childish criticism, like the one on academic qualifications of new members of the state House of Assembly is no doubt a sign that the APC doesn’t want to relent in its evil opposition against the people of Ekiti State, and our advice is that they should stop fighting Fayose because he is God’s anointed.
“If former President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had behaved the way the APC people in Ekiti State are behaving, Nigeria would have been in crisis by now.”
While admonishing the in-coming lawmakers in the state to learn from the way the APC lawmakers ended their tenure in ignominy, the National Assembly members-elect said they should always remember the ladder with which they climbed to the House of Assembly.
“The in-coming lawmakers have seen how the APC lawmakers ended their tenure in shame. They should learn from this and remain loyal to the state and the governor on whose back they rode to the House of Assembly,” they said.
