Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has said, contrary to the rumour being peddled, President Goodluck Jonathan has never asked him to resign from office.
Fayose, who appeared on a monthly programme tagged “Mr Governor Explains” on the state media, called on his supporters not to be rattled by the impeachment fever, saying he would defeat the APC this time round.
According to him, the impeachment threat flying around in the state does not rattle him in any way, saying the plot against him is against the people of the state, who put him in the present position.
Fayose said what the APC wanted was to take over the state and plunge it into crisis the way they did after he left in 2006.
Fayose, who quoted from the Bible, said the plan to impeach him won’t be successful the way it happened during his first term.
“What actually infuriated the APC is that during the June 21 election, I gave them 16-0. Again, during the presidential election, I gave them 16-0 again. They know that I will give them 26-0 in the next Saturday election.
“Major Gen Muhammadu Buhari emerged due to the Grace of God. If President Goodluck Jonathan had won, would he have gone to impeach Governor Rauf Aregbesola in Osun State or Senator Ibikunle Amosun in Ogun State?
“Buhari’s emergence can only be a threat to my sit when there is no rule of law, because Nigeria is a federation. Even the former Speaker, Hon Adewale Omirin is not the speaker, so he cannot carry out any impeachment against me”.
Fayose urged the people of the state to come out en masse during the April 11 election and cast their votes for the PDP to stem the tide of violence in the State.
“My Government is people’s government and no power of darkness can remove me from office because we are doing what is right. Must I be in the APC for me to be governor? They were in the opposition before they took over and we will continue to exist together”, Fayose said.
