The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, on Monday in Ado Ekiti appealed to Nigerians to bear with Ekiti people over Governor Ayodele Fayose’s seditious remarks threatening to bring down President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
It said the governor treasonable acts was threatening the survival of democracy in Nigeria and urged security agents to closely beam their search light on the governor.
The party in a statement by its publicity secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said the governor must have been acting under psychological stress. It added that his remarks should not be misconstrued as the opinion of the people of the state.
Fayose was at the weekend quoted to have said that, if anything happened to him or his government, following the release of military panel report on Ekiti governorship polls, he will bring down President Buhari’s government.
“Fayose is emboldened to try and bring Buhari’s government down because he got away with similar impunities in the past. Fayose should be taken seriously over his threat by the security agents as his boast to bring Buhari’s government down is not an empty threat”

“Now a new sheriff is in town to re-order the affairs of the nation to the path of sanity and so we should expect a fight back by the agents of the old order who ruined Nigeria, but yet are not willing to allow Nigerians reconcile their destiny within the context of constitutional representative governance that guarantees liberty and happiness for all,” .
Noting that Fayose had realised that his political doom is at hand, Olatunbosun said: “We all know that in both private and public life, Fayose has destroyed himself as shown by his several alleged criminal acts. That is why he is desperate in his power-drunk attempt to bring down the nation to save his head, but we will not allow him to destroy Ekiti state and Nigerian nation.”
Meanwhile the organized labour in Ekiti state, has expressed confidence that governor Ayodele Fayose will not renege on his promise that workers would not be sacked or their salaries reduced on account of the dwindling federal allocation to the state.
Trade Union Congress (TUC)chairman in the state, comrade Odunayo Adesoye and the secretary, Joint Negotiating Council, comrade Ayodeji Oladele, said they believed the governor would keep his end of the bargain.(Leadershipng)
