Fayose Speaks On SSS ‘Raid’ In Ekiti, Alleged $1m Bribe To Impeach Him

The EKiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has spoken I the
recent ‘raid’ by SSS in Ekiti saying his enemies can only try but will always
fail stating God is his backbone.
According to a press statement issued by the Governor’s
Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, the Governor who was reacting to the SSS
raid, said he remained resolute in his determination to criticise obnoxious
policies of the president in the interest of Nigeria and democracy.
The statement said the state commissioner for finance, Toyin
Ojo, who was also arrested by SSS was released late Tuesday night.
“The Bible says people with God are in majority. This is not
the first time people will harass me. It is a conspiracy and it will collapse
like other attempts before it. I will remain critical of the activities of the
Federal Government, especially when they do things that are inimical to the
welfare of Nigerians,” Mr. Fayose said.

“Imagine the questions they asked my Commissioner for
Finance, they asked him if the Federal Government has reimbursed the state
government on works done on federal roads. But the records are with them in
Abuja, can’t they check? We have nothing to hide and they are only chasing
shadows and are time wasters.
“Telling the Federal Government that the economy is in
trouble and that the president should stay at home to face governance is not a
crime and is part of my rights as a citizen of this country. I am like a tree
planted by the bank of a river that brings forth its fruits in due season,” he
While also speaking about claims that Ekiti lawmakers were
offered $1 million to impeach him, the governor expressed confidence in the
lawmakers saying;
“I am just coming from Abuja and I know that our lawmakers
are solid guys and their future and mine are tied together. When the APC was at
its peak in the state and they wanted to use 19 lawmakers to impeach me, they
failed woefully and they will still fail again. This is a storm in a tea cup.
They are not just starting; I defeated them in all courts in the land. I won’t
deter from saying the truth about the FG.
“We are in the morning we have not seen what the night is
going to be. If it is me that brought myself here they will succeed, but if it
is God, they will have to first overcome God before overcoming me,” the
governor said.
