Ekiti Condemns Attack On Fayose

Ekiti state government has condemned what it calls sponsored protests against governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose, few hours after he emerged Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum at the weekend.

Some protesters under the aegis of “Patriotic Mothers Without Borders”, at the weekend stormed the EFCC Abuja headquarters calling for the “arrest, investigation and prosecution” the governor of over his alleged involvement in the $2.1 billion arms deal scandal.

In a release signed by the Special Assistant to the governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the state government accused the EFCC and the state All Progressives Congress, APC, of sponsoring the protests.

Describing the so-called protest as petty and an afterthought, the governor’s spokesperson said; “It is obvious that Fayose’s emergence as Chairman of PDP Governors’ Forum has unsettled
the APC cabal because they fear that he is capable of using the platform against President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term ambition.

“Ridiculously, in their desperation and fear of the unknown, EFCC shamelessly turned itself to the mouthpiece of the protesters by issuing press statement on their behalf.

“If they are having headache because of Governor Fayose’s rising profile, especially his emergence as Chairman of PDP Governors’ Forum, their headache will soon turn to migraine that will be difficult to
cure.”
He reminded Governor Fayose’s detractors that he is a sitting and well rooted governor that cannot be prosecuted, saying; “Those whose only
daily business is to run after Peter Ayodele Fayose should just keep their gun powder dry and wait till 2018.”
Olayinka advised “APC leaders to rise above pettiness and stop fighting a lost battle, saying; “It is funny that they still believe they can use the same strategy that they used in 2006 to wrestle power in 2017.”

Fayose on Friday took over the chairmanship of the PDP Governors Forum from Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State who exits office next month.
