Fayose Exonerates Buhari From His Political Troubles As He Inaugurates New House Of Assembly

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has held a victory procession round Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital yesterday after a new House of Assembly was inaugurated signaling the end of his battle with 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers who wanted him impeached.

The governor’s happiness is not unexpected as the new State House of Assembly is entirely composed of his associates in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). The new speaker, Pastor Kola Oluwawole, a former Chief of Staff to Fayose during his first advent, promptly pledged to toe a different line from the antagonism that characterised the relationship between Fayose and the immediate past House of Assembly controlled by the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The governor said he had forgiven the 19 former APC lawmakers who instigated the impeachment motion against him. He also absolved President Muhammadu Buhari of complicity in the political battles that were recently waged against him in the state.

Supporters of the governor including commercial motorcyclists and other hangers-on had for days laid siege to the House of Assembly complex to prevent the 19 APC members from having access to the chamber. Other supporters also mounted roadblocks at strategic entry points into the state with the express determination of stopping the legislators who were allegedly based in Oshogbo, Osun State from entering the state.

“I am a man destined for greatness and with the power of God, nobody can bring me down. I have defeated my enemies during elections, and now I defeated impeachment,” Fayose told the crowd.

“The President had said that he had no enemy to fight. He said he has put the past behind him and why are the APC lawmakers still bent on impeaching me? What is their own in this matter?” Fayose asked.

“I won’t behave like them. I am going to give to all that is due to them, not only the G7 alone,” he said.

Fayose pledged to work with the new Assembly for the overall interest of the people of the state.
