Ekiti State governor Ayo Fayose is speaking out regarding reports that members of the Ekiti State House Assembly are planning to impeach him.
He has dismissed the reports, stating that he has not been served any impeachment notice, and that he heard the news via online news platforms just like everybody else.
According to Premium Times, while speaking during a programme, Meet Your Governor aired on EKTV, Ekiti Radio, Progress FM and NTA, Ado Ekiti on Monday, Fayose stated:
I’m like Israel that is in the midst of enemies but will always prevail. Whoever wants to remove me will first have to impeach God.
They are doing all these just to get at me because of my support for President Jonathan and I have no regret for supporting the president.
Let me say it again, I have not been served any impeachment notice. The House of Assembly is also on recess and Dr Adewale Omirin is not the speaker of the State House of Assembly.
Omirin is in court, challenging his impeachment and he can’t be challenging his impeachment in court and at the same time laying claim to being Speaker,” he said.
