The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has alleged that the All Progressive Congress, APC, is plotting to impeach Ayodele Fayose, Governor of Ekiti State.
According to the party, the impeachment plot is being arranged in connivance with the police.
The PDP warned that “any resort to underhand measures to impeach Fayose, without the constitutionally required 2/3 of the members of the House, particularly at this time, when the lawmakers are currently on their annual recess, will surely be resisted by our members.”
The party described the alleged impeachment plot as a “recipe for crisis in the peaceful state.”
“The PDP is aware that the plot is a desperate bid by the APC to rush into the Ekiti government house to remove and tamper with documents and evidence confirming the rigging of the July 14 governorship election, ahead of the sitting of the election tribunal,” the party said, in a statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary.
“Having realized that there is no way their daylight robbery at the poll can stand in the court, the APC is now employing all desperate means to subvert the course of justice.”
Kolapo Olusola, candidate of the PDP in the last gubernatorial election, lost to Kayode Fayemi of the APC.
