Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has advised the 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) members in the State House of Assembly to stop acting like jesters, following speculations that they are set to commence impeachment proceedings against him.
“The script being acted by the APC is a failed one because no one, no matter how highly placed, will be allowed to test the will of Ekiti people”, Fayose said.
The governor, who described the purported impeachment notice posted online by the APC lawmakers as “joke of the century”, pointed out that the authentic speaker of the state legislature is Hon Dele Olugbemi and not Dr Adewale Omirin.
In a statement issued on Saturday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said; “Omirin is already in court, challenging his impeachment and common sense dictates that when you are challenging an action already taken in court, you have accepted the consequences of such action pending the determination of the suit you filed”.
He said the APC lawmakers should stop advertising their ignorance and crudity in the market place by posting impeachment notice online.
“Since last year November, these so-called lawmakers abdicated their duties and ran to Lagos only for them to resurface on Wednesday, but they hurriedly ran away again.
“Now they are posting notice of impeachment signed on March 9, 2015 and Ekiti people are asking; was the motion for impeachment moved and adopted in Lagos or Osun State House of Assembly?
“Is impeachment of a governor done along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway inside a moving bus?
“Rather than going about advertising their ignorance and crudity, the APC lawmakers should wait for the court to adjudicate on the case they filed because even the President-Elect, Major General Mohammadu Buhari (rtd) will respect the rule of law when he assumes office”, the governor said.
