The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has raised the alarm over what it called an illegal plot by some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to oust Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose.
Fayose, who has been having a running battle with the members of the State House of Assembly, had obtained a court order restricting the members from proceeding with the impeachment process.
The Acting Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, while addressing a retreat of elected lawmakers under the party holding in Port Harcourt Monday morning, said the Ekiti lawmakers “are presently camped at a location in Osun in preparation to be moved to Ekiti”.
Secondus said the party considered it illegal and a test of its patience if the Ekiti lawmakers and their backers will be allowed to make real their intentions.
“We call on President Buhari to intervene. As a party, we will not sit down and watch democracy being derailed. We have been working on deepening democracy for the past 16 years. We must continue to deepen it and I call on you to continue to depend democracy.”
