APC Leaders Responsible For Trouble In Ekiti– Fayose
Ayodele Fayose has described the comment of
human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) that
some people plan to relocate from Ekiti State
after the inauguration of the governor-elect.
Fayose, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi
on Tuesday described the claim by the
lawyer as baseless and out of place,
adding that the APC
leaders are the trouble makers.
“Those causing trouble in the state in the last
two weeks are leaders of the All Progressives
Congress and their thugs. If people like Jaruu
and Apase, who have murder cases hanging on
their necks, are leaving the state, security
agencies know how to handle their cases.
Falana was recently quoted on a news platform
as saying some people in the state are planning
to relocate from the state after Fayose’s
inaguration slated for October 16, as he said
Ekiti State was gradually gaining the status of a
The statement however dismissed Falana’s
comment. “Ekiti is as peaceful as any other
state,” according to the statement.
“It is people like Falana who are beating the
drum of war and propaganda that are having
nightmares and sleepless nights over the return
of Fayose as the governor of the state.
“If trouble makers and people that the Bible
calls ‘the troublers of Israel’ are relocating, then,
it is good riddance to bad rubbish.
“If those who have looted the state’s treasury
and are afraid of probe have decided to
relocate, they should know that the long arm of
the law will catch up with them.
“It is common sense that it is only the guilty that
are afraid. Anybody who does not have any
skeleton in his cupboard will not be running
helter skelter when nobody is pursuing him.
“Falana and his cohorts should know that they
are not in any way better than thousands of
Ekiti teachers, artisans, bike riders,
businessmen, council workers, professionals
and others who cast their votes for Fayose to
lead them for the next four years,” he added.
According to the statement, the people of Ekiti
who voted Fayose as their governor on June 21
knew what they wanted, and are eagerly waiting
for his inauguration.
“We know for sure that as our Lord lives, that
expectation will not be cut short.
Adelusi, in the statement therefore urged the
people of Ekiti and Nigerians at large to take
Falana’s claims with a pinch of salt.
