Elected House of Representatives members from Ekiti State have warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State of the consequences of the party’s relentless war against the State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, saying the party should stop fighting against God and the people of Ekiti.
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.
Having fought for twelve months (July 2014 – 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 to 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 won’t 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 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 be in crisis by now, thy said.
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.
