Impeach Fayose and Face Dire Consequences- PDP Warns APC

Ayodele Fayose, Ekiti Governor

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has warned the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC to stop its alleged plot to impeach Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose or attract dire consequences.

PDP alleged that the impeachment plot against the Ekiti state Governor was being arranged in connivance with the Police but warned that such move was a recipe for crisis in the peaceful state.

A statement Thursday by the party's National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said the plot was a desperate bid by the APC to rush into the Ekiti Government House to remove and tamper with the party's evidence of rigging by the APC in the last election.

"The PDP is aware that the plot is a desperate bid by the APC to rush into the Ekiti Government House to remove and tamper with documents and evidence confirming the rigging of the July 14 governorship election, ahead of the sitting of the election tribunal.

"Having realized that there is no way their daylight robbery at the poll can stand in the court, the APC is now employing all desperate means to subvert the course of Justice.

"This explains why a detachment of the Police can be hurriedly deployed to besiege the Ekiti State Assembly Complex last night without a formal request by the Speaker, the Clerk or the Sergeant-at-Arms, who is the chief security officer of the complex.

The PDP warned that any resort to underhand measures to impeach Fayose, without the constitutionally required 2/3 of the members of the House, particularly at this time, when the lawmakers are currently on their annual recess, will surely be resisted by our members.

Accusing the APC of plotting crisis all over the nation and resorting to the use of harassment, intimidation and brute force against the people and our democratic institutions, PDP warns that these dispositions of APC and its Federal Government portend grave danger for our nation.

"Now that the political and parliamentary establishment of the Ekiti House of Assembly has loudly declared that they do not require the services of the detachment of policemen, PDP charges the APC to immediately withdraw their armed agents from the premises of the House of Assembly.

It urged the judiciary to be firm in standing by the truth on the Ekiti election and not be cowed or intimidated by the threats and pressure coming from the APC.
