Fayose Begs As APC Lawmakers Reject Forgiveness Plea

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti has explained why he
begged forgiveness from the opposition lawmakers in
the state just as the lawmakers have rejected the
Governors plea.
Fayose had been involved in an impeachmemt tussle
with the 19 All Progressives Congress lawmakers in the
state House of Assembly.
The governor spoke on Sunday at the thanksgiving
service organised for him at the Cathedral Church of
Emmanuel, Anglican Communion, Ado Ekiti, to celebrate
his electoral victory at the Supreme Court.
Fayose said, “I asked for forgiveness for reconciliation
and to pursue genuine peace. Waiving the olive branch
does not mean cowardice, it is for peace.
“Conspiracy is against God’s will. What better way
could one seek peace other than asking for
forgiveness.”
The governor advised the APC to emulate President
Goodluck Jonathan who conceded defeat and saved
Nigeria from disintegrating.
“When I contested for Senate they said I lost and I did
not fight anyone. I did not go to the tribunal and I was
saying good things about the government then. The
opposition should be courageous enough to accept
defeat. I follow Jonathan in and out of office. Jonathan
gave up for survival of Nigeria. Jonathan prevented the
prophecy that Nigeria would break up in 2015.
“I’m enjoying the mandate of God through his people
and that cannot be controverted. My sin is because I
allowed the common man to breathe the air of hope.
“The people have spoken (governorship election), they
said it was military intervention. They spoke the second
term (presidential election), is that one photochromic?
And they spoke again the third time (House of Assembly
election).
“If God that gave me victory cannot defend me, I better
go home. If the people cannot defend the mandate they
gave to me, I better go home. Power doesn’t come from
man. Power belongs to God. Anyone against the voice
of God is following Satan’s way.
“In a democracy, you need a simple majority to win
elections, but I enjoy total majority. They want to take
government by force, firing shots at people; that is coup
against the people. They said they are coming again
tomorrow, we are waiting for them.”
But the APC lawmakers advised Fayose to stop inciting
the people, saying his Sunday broadcast had
demonstrated that he was not committed to genuine
reconciliation.
The APC lawmakers in a statement on Sunday accused
the governor of inciting the people against them in the
broadcast.
A statement by the Special Adviser on Media to Speaker
Adewale Omirin, Wole Olujobi, said the governor in his
broadcast demonstrated that he was never committed
to the peace he preached barely 24 hours before his
inciting broadcast.
“How do you reconcile this inciting broadcast with a
plea he made for peace not quite 24 hours earlier, which
Ekiti people and indeed Nigerians thought was a good
move by the governor to thaw the frozen relationship
between him and the lawmakers?
“This is a confirmation of what Dr. Omirin said i n
his Sunday Punch interview that the governor can’t be
trusted in any peace move.
