The 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) legislators in the Ekiti State House of Assembly have said they would not back down from plans to impeach Governor Ayo Fayose.

The declaration was made by factional Speaker of the House, Adewale Omirin via a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media, Wole Olujobi.

The statement reads:

 “It will soon dawn on Fayose and his aides that the matter at hand goes beyond exuberant media skirmishes that are being deployed to rally support for the governor.”

“Attention of the world has shifted to Ekiti State following the leaked tape detailing electoral fraud perpetrated to give Fayose victory. After that, several issues in Ekiti State are being questioned on the place of the constitution in nurturing democracy in the country, and as responsible citizens, we must act right to make democracy work.”

“It is good that his men are talking in the media about the need to uphold the constitution in this matter even though they behave short of upholding the constitution in their conduct.”

“Even though the governor trampled on the same constitution when he led thugs to attack judges in court and tore court records in the Chief Judge’s office, our duty is to follow constitutional path in this impeachment process.”

“These men that are flying the governor’s banner will soon see the law in action. This impeachment process is real. We must rescue Ekiti State from lawlessness and fraud.”

Fayose, who has been served an impeachment notice, however dismissed the plot by the lawmakers as a joke.
