Fayose ‘Falana should wait till 2018 to try his luck with Ekiti governorship,’ Governor says

Falana has called for Fayose’s prosecution over allegations that he rigged the June 2014 elections in the state.

  • Published:

Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has said that the frequent attacks launched on him by prominent lawyer, Femi Falana are due to the latter’s pain and frustration from a failed ambition to govern the state.

Fayose made the comments via a statement released by his media aide, Lere Olayinka.

It reads:

“Oga Femi Falana is fast turning himself into a jester with his obsession to jump to the roof top to make noise over anything Ayo Fayose.”

“He (Falana) can come to Ekiti and stand for election again and let's see if he can win even house of Assembly election in Ilawe-Ekiti, his hometown.”

“During the APC government of Dr Kayode Fayemi, 10 indigenes of Ekiti State were murdered by agents of the government. In one of the murders, Foluso Ogundare’s killing in Emure Ekiti, the APC government tried so hard to frustrate the trial of the suspects and it was a public knowledge that Certificates of Occupancy were hurriedly signed to effect the suspects’ bail.”

“When all these were happening in Ekiti, Falana was not in the moon, he simply opted to keep silent because it was not Fayose that was the governor.”

“The same Falana said in an interview in Punch newspaper on July 15, 2014 that Ekiti governorship election was not rigged and that Fayose won fair and square, only to come back close 18 months after to say that the election was fraudulent.”

“Honestly, Oga Femi Falana must be told in clear terms that his hypocrisy on Ekiti State politics, especially concerning Governor Fayose is fast turning to sound from a broken record. If he is pained with Fayose as his governor, he should wait till 2018 to try his luck and let’s how far he will be able to go.”

Falana has called for Fayose’s prosecution over allegations that he rigged the June 2014 elections in the state.
