Governor Ayo Fayose


A group, Coalition for Good Governance has urged the National Assembly to impeach Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose within 14 days.

The group also said that refusal to impeach Fayose will lead to a mass protest.

“There is proof that the Ekiti State House of Assembly can no longer perform its functions and the National Assembly should consider taking over those functions to ensure that the needful is done,” the group’s National Secretary, Comrade Audu Joseph told journalists in Abuja.

“To the National Assembly, we demand that a declaration of the doctrine of necessity to waive Fayose’s immunity is non-negotiable at this point such that people enjoying immunity can be allowed to answer to criminal charges like the current situation where security funds were embezzled and millions of Nigerians including the armed forces had to pay the supreme price.

“In the last quarter of 2016, details emerged of how N4.7 billion naira being part of the stolen $2.1 billion meant for arms purchase found its way into Ayo Fayose’s bank account after the money was ferried across the country in a private jet and bullion vans, according to Obanikoro’s testimony after he turned himself in to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).‎

“Just a few days ago, on December 29, 2016 another audio surfaced of Fayose with his partner in crime, Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, in which both men discussed without remorse, about how they compromised the December 10 legislative election re-run in Rivers state.‎

“Not once did either of them acknowledge the magnitude of the crime committed, which included the murder of some policemen in addition to the now habitual sabotaging of the wishes of the electorates," he added.

Joseph was referring to an audio recording in which Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike allegedly told Fayose “You have to kill anyone you can kill” while discussing the December 10 elections in the state.
