Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele
Fayose, has asked for forgiveness
from those he might have offended
and expressed his readiness to
dialogue with his opponents to
bring peace to the state.
This is as the speaker and head of
the All Progressives Congress 19
state legislators, Dr. Adewale
Omirin expressed their willingness
to dialogue with the governor if he

prayer session organised for him by
the Ansarudeen Mosque, Atikankan
in Ado-Ekiti to celebrate his recent

The 19 All Progressives Congress
lawmakers of the Ekiti State House
of Assembly have issued a notice of
impeachment to the governor,
citing eight impeachable offences.
The embattled Speaker, Omirin,
had last week Thursday requested
the state Chief Judge, Justice
Ayodeji Daramola, to raise a seven-
man panel within seven days of
receipt of the letter to investigate
Fayose and his deputy, Dr. Kolapo
Olusola, over allegations of
impunity, violence and stalking
among other constitutional
Fayose said, “If they say someone
has enemies, I’m number in the
world. But God has been merciful
and has been helping me to
overcome my challenges.
“I need your prayers because it will
strengthen me more. I’m here in
the mosque to thank God. All I want
is peace. I have a constitutionally
guaranteed tenure. A governor is
judged by his achievements in
office. All I’m interested in is to
bring development to my people.
My opponents know if I have a rest
of mind I will achieve my

forgive me for the sake of the
masses and orphans. They should
know people gave me the
mandate. Nobody is above mistake;
they should forgive me.”
The governor said a lot of people in
the state had been living in
palpable fear of the unknown
before the judgment of the
Supreme Court.
“We are here to thank God and pray
for peace. I’m appealing to those
aggrieved to please allow peace to
reign. There is no perfect man. They
should allow peace to reign. All I
want is peace that will energise
“Anything that can bring peace
cannot be wished away. For me, I’m
ready to accommodate everybody.
Whatever they want we can sit
down and talk.”
But Omirin in a statement said, “We
are ready too for dialogue; if he is
ready to toe the path of peace. He is
the one causing trouble. He is the
one that has brought
inconvenience to us and our
“He has stopped our salaries and
other entitlements. It is not that we
don’t want to work with him, but
he is the one refusing to allow
peace to reign in the state.”
Earlier before leading the prayers
for the governor, the State
Missioner of the Ansarudeen
Movement, Mr. Liadi Adebayo,
called on politicians in the state to
settle their differences.
He canvassed for peaceful co-
existence of the entire people of
the state, irrespective of their
political differences.
The cleric urged residents to live
together in harmony as politics was
not supposed to be a do or die
Meanwhile, the state Peoples
Democratic Party chairman, Mr.
Idowu Faleye, has urged the 19 APC
lawmakers to listen to the people

would incur the wrath of the
people if they continued with the
