The national leadership of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party has said Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State will reply to the impeachment notice allegedly served him by members of the State House of Assembly.But the party said the notice must be properly served on the embattled governor.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Olisa Metuh, stated this while answering questions from journalists at the party’s national headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday.
Metuh, however, said it was disheartening that the members of the State House of Assembly whose tenure would expire soon, were bent on causing crisis in the state with their action.
He said, “Fayose would reply accordingly to the impeachment notice if the lawmakers follow due process.
“The governor will respond accordingly when they (lawmakers) do it properly.
“But why are these lawmakers, who have less than one month to leave, in a hurry to sack their governor?
“They have grown wings as soon as the result of the Presidential election was announced. It is immoral and undemocratic for a group of 19 lawmakers to put a state in chaos.”
He appealed to the President-Elect, Maj.Gen. Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), to intervene in the crisis rocking the state in order to show that “he is truly a born again democrat.”
