Addressing the protesters, Kemisola Olaleye, the Ekiti State APC deputy chairperson, said residents of the state were tired of the Fayose-led governmen.

In her words, “We are tired of the one day, one problem of [the] Ayodele Fayose-led administration in Ekiti State and we also don’t want him as our governor anymore. We are raising our support for President Muhammadu Buhari for his war against corruption.”  

In the same vein, an official of the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) at the protest asked Fayose to submit himself for investigation while demanding the  submission of members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly accused of certificate forgery for prosecution.

Fayose’s bank account was blocked by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday, June 20, 2016.
