Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose can finally heave a sigh of relief as the impeachment threat against him seems to finally be over.

This is due to the tenure expiration of the 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) legislators who have been seeking to remove the governor.

Fayose, on Thursday, June 4, 2015, said goodbye to the lawmakers adding that he had forgiving them for attempting to impeach him.

The governor’s comments were contained in a statement released by his media aide, Idowu Adelusi.

The statement reads in part:

“The last few months have been traumatic, especially this week. I was not given room for concentration, but I had left the battle for God to fight. I told those planning to impeach me that they will succeed if they can impeach God.”

 “I did not bring myself back to power; my coming back after eight years was divine. I defeated the APC totally in all the elections, still they did not want to concede victory easily until when the Ekiti people rose to defend that June 21 mandate. I will now squarely face the business of governance.”

The bitter war between Fayose and the lawmakers began after they accused the governor of witch-hunting them when he came into office.

The APC lawmakers began to fight back after President Muhammadu Buhari won the March 28 election.

The legislators’ tenure will end today, Friday, June 5, 2015.
