Fayose To Oshiomhole: “Go and Die”, Governor Should Keep Shut


These our leaders ehn! From jumping fence to trading words. I don’t know exactly what’s going on between these two governors – Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state and Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State. Yesterday Governor Oshiomole blasted Governor Fayose saying;

“If the Ekiti Governor is too lazy to read and too politically illiterate to know what is happening in Edo State House of Assembly, we expected his psychedelic media aides to simply shut their loud mouths rather than behave like capering neophytes.”

Biko what is capering neophytes? Anyway, governor Fayose has replied Oshiomhole via his Special Assistant on New Media. See the press statement after the cut…

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has told the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole to keep his mouth shut and stop meddling in Ekiti State issues.

The governor said Oshiomhole lacked moral rights to comment on happenings in the Ekiti State House of Assembly, having locked up the Edo State House of Assembly for over six months.

A statement issued by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka read; “It is unfortunate that we are in a country where people who should naturally bury their heads in shame still speak.

“Aides of a supposed Comrade Governor, who look a hapless widow in the eyes and told her to “go and die” ought to know that they lack moral rights to speak in a saner clime.

“However, because we are in a Nigeria where anything goes, aides of a governor like Adams Oshiomhole, who relocated the sittings of his State House of Assembly to his bedroom in the Edo State Government House can open their oppressive mouths and defend the indefensible.

“Is it proper for a State House of Assembly to sit in the Government House? Should a State House of Assembly complex be put under locks and keys for six months? And can actions taken in the sitting of a House of Assembly held inside the Edo State Government House be said to have stamp of legality?

“Here we are with a supposed progressive Comrade Governor perpetuating ilegalities in Edo State with lawmakers of his party, APC sitting exclusively in the Government House where he resides with his wife and children, and instead of his aides to remove the timber in their boss’ eyes, they are getting concerned with the toothpicks in another person eyes.

“The reality is that whether the APC lawmakers are 15 or 5, the lawmakers cannot sit anywhere else apart from the State House of Assembly. Or are they saying that the National Assembly can also relocate to Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos?

“It is our advise that Governor Adams Oshiomhole should solve the problems in the Edo State House of Assembly and stop meddling in the Ekiti State affairs because on June 21, 2014, the people elected their governor in person of Peter Ayodele Fayose, and millions of APC evil machinations cannot stop him from governing Ekiti State for four years.”


  1. i stay in Benin. it was hell for us all in Benin then. Every morning, we would have to trek as far as 500 metres b4 we could get a bus to our destination..Oshiomole used thugs to barricade d state’s house of assembly so as to prevent PDP lawmakers from entering into plenary sessions and here he is advising Fayose. I think Fayose should have insulted him more because that serves him right 4 claiming to be a saint that he is not
