Ekiti: Fayose Expresses Readiness To Negotiate With The APC Lawmakers Threatening Impeachment

Ayo Fayose

After successfully holding off the 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers who are trying to impeach him, Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose says he is now willing to negotiate with the lawmakers.

The lawmakers who are pushing for the impeachment of the governor, had already directed the state Chief Judge, Justice Ayodeji Daramola, to constitute a panel to investigate allegations of gross misconduct levelled against him and his deputy, Dr. Kolapo Olusola.

Speaking on Friday during a thanksgiving service at Ansar ud Deen Mosque, Ado Ekiti on his victory at the Supreme Court, which affirmed his election, Fayose said he was ready to sit with the lawmakers and negotiate.

However, he clarified that he was making peace on the condition that they were ready to embrace the move in the overall interest of the state.

“I am not opposed to anything that can bring peace; peace cannot be wished away. I’m ready to accommodate everybody. Whatever they want, we can sit down and talk”, the governor stated.

“There is no perfect man. They should allow peace to reign. All I want is peace that will energise development”.

The governor said he had received calls and appeals for an amicable solution to the lingering crisis by eminent Nigerians, religious leaders as well as traditional rulers.

He apologized to those he might have offended one way or the other, in the course of carrying out his duties as governor. He said no man is perfect, only God is.
