Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state of calling for a coup against his government.

Fayose also denied making treasonable comments while criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari.

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

It reads:

“APC is obviously calling for a coup-de-tat against a governor democratically elected, whose tenure is fixed and mode of possible removal from office is stipulated in the Constitution of Nigeria.”

“There is no point wrestling with pigs. For people with sound, discerning minds, they would, no doubt, wonder why somebody with a decent background and sound mind would refer to the governor of his state as needing psychiatric attention or not been able to survive in a law abiding society?”

“Politics apart, this is madness taken too far and beyond redemption. Governo‎r Ayodele Fayose came and cleaned up the mess left by the APC government of Dr Kayode Fayemi and its hordes of blood suckers, who made Ekiti State to bleed to a point of coma. He has not only been alive to his duty as the indefatigable leader of the state, but has consistently put smiles on the faces of the people.”

“If the APC goons are piqued that Mr Governor is criticising the President, they can relocate to Abuja and denounce their indiqeneship of Ekiti State. They must know that Governor Fayose, like any other Nigerian, is exercising his constitutional rights of freedom of speech. He has not breached anybody's rights by constructively commenting on national issues.”

“It is obvious that having failed in their efforts to gained access to the Ekiti State Government through the backdoor, they now desired a situation whereby the State Government House will also be invaded by the DSS as it was done in Akwa-Ibom State, but on this one, they will fail as usual.”

“Governor Fayose clearly expressed his minds in the interview they are trying to capitalise on by warning that any attempt to destabilise his government could lead to the downfall of the APC government and he stands by what he said. The governor never said he was going to bring the government of President Mohammadu Buhari down.”

“Therefore, Nigerians do not need the apology of a group of shameless hypocrites like the APC in Ekiti State. Rather, what Nigerians need at this time is someone who can look at President Buhari in the eyes and tell him the bitter truth, and that’s exactly what Governor Fayose is doing.”

Fayose had warned Buhari that any attempt to harass him would lead to the downfall of his administration.
