All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ekiti State has written to the National Assembly pointing at a claimed “avalanche of propaganda” by Governor Ayodele Fayose in the media to mislead them and the general public on Ekiti State crisis.
In a petition by the state secretary of the party, Ayodele Paul Omotoso, to the Senate president, Bukola Saraki, speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and copied to the Senate leader, Senate majority whip, Senate minority leader, the Embassy of the United States of America, the British Embassy and delegation of the European Union, the party said its action became imperative in the face of “ceaseless lies and propaganda by the governor on Ekiti crisis
to mislead the people in order to extract public sympathy and paint the APC government in bad light.”
He specifically cited the governor’s allegation that APC instigated DSS to arrest PDP lawmakers preparatory to alleged impeachment of the governor, adding also that the governor’s allegation that the DSS offered PDP lawmakers $1million to impeach him was a calculated attempt to set Nigerians against APC and paint the DSS in bad light.
The APC accused Fayose of habitual stoking of violence to cause crisis in the state, pointing the attention of the lawmakers to the report of the State Security Service panel set up by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to probe political murders in Ekiti State between 2004 and 2006, which “conclusively established that Governor Fayose had zero tolerance for the opposition.”
Omotoso regretted that in spite of the deluge of petitions to the security agencies on the governor’s alleged brutality and flagrant disregard to the rule of law, the party’s complaints had not been addressed by the appropriate authorities.
“We have not seen anything to suggest that our complaints are being addressed as we speak, and we want to believe that this inaction by these agencies has further emboldened the governor to be more daring, boundless, seemingly untouchable and above the law,” he concluded.
