Members-elect of the House of Representatives from Ekiti State, yesterday, warned the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) of the consequences of its relentless war against the state governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, saying the party should stop fighting against God and the people of Ekiti.
The lawmakers-elect, who said it was worrisome that after the failed plot by the erstwhile APC members of the State House of Assembly to impeach Governor Fayose, the party was still unrelenting in its fight against the governor.
In a statement signed by the six Reps members-elect, Ayo Oladimeji, Segun Adekola, Akin Awodumila, Olamide Oni, Thaddeus Aina and Kehinde Agboola, the lawmakers said it was imperative for peace to reign in the state.
The statement read in part: “Having fought for twelve months (July 2014 – June 2015), trying to get what they lost at the polls through the back door, the most sensible thing for the APC leaders to do now is to allow governance.
“Telling lies and engaging in childish criticism, like the one on academic qualifications of new members of the State House of Assembly is a sign that the APC won’t relent in its evil opposition against the people of Ekiti State, and our advice is that they should stop fighting Fayose, because he is God anointed”.
The lawmakers-elect, also stated that “if former President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had behaved the way the APC people in Ekiti State are behaving, Nigeria would be in crisis by now”.
While admonishing new members of the House of Assembly to learn from history, the reps-elect said they should never forget on whose back they rode to become lawmakers.
