Ekiti Drivers Warn Against Fayose’s Impeachment
COMMERCIAL drivers unions in Ekiti State have warned the 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State against impeaching Governor Ayodele Fayose, threatening to resist any plot to destabilise the state.
The unions said they were aware of the meeting held by eight of the APC lawmakers with a former president on Wednesday night and the one they have scheduled for Oshogbo, Osun State on Friday as well as the two dates they have picked to invade Ekiti, adding that; “all efforts by the APC lawmakers and their sponsors to throw Ekiti State into chaos will be resisted. We are following every of their moves and whatever funny move they make between now and the end of their tenure will be resisted.”
In a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday and signed by the Chairman, Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN); Comrade Samuel Agbede, Chairman, National Unions of Road Transport Workers (NURTW); Comrade Clement Adekola and Chairman, Pick-Up and Lorry Drivers Association; Hon. Atowoju Oluwatosin, the unions noted the involvement of a former Governor of the State and Deputy National Chairman of the APC and two APC serving Senators in the plot and warned those backing the lawmakers to be mindful of the fact that Ekiti people are watching them.
“We have voted and elected Peter Ayodele Fayose as our governor and we wish to assure whichever security agents they are enlisting to come and destabilise Ekiti State that we are ready for them. Their sponsors should also know that this is 2015, not 2006, we are wiser now,” the unions said.
