An octogenarian, Pa Owoeye Ajayi, on Wednesday urged politicians in Ekiti against creating chaos in the state in the bid to impeach Gov. Ayodele Fayose.
The News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) reports that supporters of the governor had on Tuesday disrupted human and vehicular movement in the state while protesting the impeachment bid.
But Ajayi told NAN in Ikole-Ekiti that many right thinking indigenes of the state were disappointed with the actions and utterances of the politicians irrespective of party affiliation.
“The performances of these politicians, in terms of constituency projects and poverty alleviation programmes since 1999 are not encouraging and Iis proof that they are not concerned about the welfare of the people.
“Ekiti people should be careful and caution themselves to avoid being used to cause violence by these politicians who might abandon them and stay away from the state when things get out of hand,’’ he said.
Ajayi, who claimed to be an active member of the defunct Action Group, appealed to the aggrieved lawmakers and Fayose to tread the path of peace to resolve all issues.
“I urge the leadership of the two major political parties in the state to put the interest of the state first and avert a repeat of the 2006 ugly scenario,’’ Ajayi said.
