Impeachment: Ekiti lawmakers direct Chief Judge to probe Fayose

Ayodele Fayose, Governor of Ekiti state

Ekiti State lawmakers have directed the state Chief Judge to immediately set up a committee to investigate Governor Ayodele Fayose, inching closer to impeaching the governor.

Sixteen members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Thursday directed the Chief Judge to commence the process of probing allegations of gross misconduct against the governor and his deputy governor, Ojo Eleka.
Since coming to power in 2014, Mr. Fayose and the lawmakers have been locked in a row. The governor later reportedly staged a purported impeachment of the speaker of the assembly, Wale Omirin.

If Mr. Fayose is eventually sacked, it will be the second time he is removed from office having been impeached in 2006.

The governor said Tuesday those attempting to remove him will first of all have to “impeach God”.

      Its the Yorubas in Tinubu and Obj that want to play God in Nigeria——————-we shall see if Obasanjo is God or Lucifer–its a shame that this is what APC has come to represent in the wild wild west——————Is this the way Awo would have handled the slef induced crisis—–by APC in the west—————–Buhari should not think he will live forever————————–as president of Nigeria—–aware the Americans who put him there via Obama—-are watching him very closely–if the Democrats dumped an ailing Buhari on us–the Republicans can as well remove him like a piece of maggot-one day

    This is the APC government that the USA and Britain imposed on Nigerians—My question is this when will Buhari Obj and tinubu give Nigerians a chance for peace—————This was how the civil war started—-with the backing of the Fulanis for Akintola–against Awo————-The same Fulanis were the ones who used Abiola against Awo then later killed Abiola the winner of June 12 election—and his wife Kudirat- The Fulanis are back in the South West again—Those who refuse to learn from history would have history haunt then to their death–Nigeria is heading towards gradual separation——————whether we like it or not—-the unity of the country is dead——————–and will be finally buried with the coming of the BLOOD SUCKING monsters in APC—————

    Buhari Can’t Take Nigeria To The Promised Land, Says LP Chieftain – A chieftain of the Labour Party, Hon Chibuzom Aghalibe, has mentioned that the president-elect, Basic Muhammadu Buhari, cannot take Nigeria to the Promised Land, as he cannot transform into the modern president the country deserves.

    Aghalibe, who stated this in a chat with newsmen in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, mentioned Buhari, who ran for the Presidency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has not changed a bit from what he used to be when he took over as military head of state in 1983.

    He said, “I have to be frank with you I do not see Common Muhammadu Buhari taking Nigeria to the Promised Land. I do not see that. I have watched him I was in the secondary college when he came on board the very first time and I have grown to see that Muhammadu Buhari has not changed. He is nonetheless the Muhammadu Buhari we knew in 1983. I am yet to see how he is going to transform into the modern day president Nigeria deserves at this point of our development.”

    Aghalibe, who is contesting the Mbaitoli Constituency seat in the Imo State House of Assembly on the platform of LP, stated that even though majority of Nigerians expected President Goodluck Jonathan to complete his eight years in office, the outcome of the Presidential election, which saw the emergence of Buhari may have been the wish of all Nigerians.

      Monkey that is the reason he was elected, cos he has not changed in certain some people. You brain is really tasking you I see….lol

      Someone contesting for Imo state house of assembly seat under the dead and buried Labour Party is now a chieftain to you.see how low you can go. Since the day I noticed your fake burning spear handle I knew you were a Fayose boy. The earlier you get the fact the your mentor is a goner and face the realities to follow,the better for your daft self.

        …stop replying this individual.
        You are only encouraging him.

        Say the truth always, agreed fayose misbehaved, the APC legislators are they saint. I disagreed with fayose behavior. I also suspect that. The APC wants fayose out so that their secrets will not be found.

    After the court has denied him to stop the impeachment proceeding, the next step has been taken in two weeks fayose is a gooner. Thug like him don’t what to be a governor in a sane country.

    Come what may,rule of law must be allowed to take its rightful course in Ekiti State after the lawlessness and impunity rule of Ayo Fayose which has turned Ekiti State to lawless and impunity dungeon.Ayo Fayose was installed governor of Ekiti State against the provision of Nigerian INEC constitution which forbids an impeached governor/president from running for elective office for ten years.Upon that Ayo Fayose invaded Ekiti State court-rooms and gotten two judges beaten up by his thugs,vandalized Ekiti court’s documents and harassed lawyers and workers.Ayo Fayose must be impeached to restore decency in Ekiti State public sector and restore the respect and dignity of Ekiti governor’s position.

    Nigerians must rise and condemn the APC TOTALITARIAN ABUSE OF POWER.
    Wherever APC loses the governorship seat and controls the parliament, the next
    instinct of APC is IMPEACHMENT of the governor. This is bad. It is a grave threat to
    stability. The courts of law must pronounce on abuse of power when an impeachment
    case is brought before it the next time. Ayo Fayoshe should thus file a lawsuit to stay
    proceeding pending the determination of the open question, whether:

    • ‘gross misconduct’ for impeachment under the 1999 Constitution
    can be for as trifle a thing as a governor not smiling broadly enough
    in the opinion of the State House of Assembly, or, a governor sneezing
    or coughing over dinner, in the opinion of the State House of Assembly.

      You are a joker ,it is my sincere prayer that God Almighty will run your life the way Fayose is running Ekiti since October, God will make 7 > 19 in your life , overrun your life as Fayose & his Thugs overran the Court of Justice.
      Your emotion & sentiment will not stop the Train of impeachment that has already left the Station.

        • “apostle” of lawlessness, don’t you think that the below mentioned acts deserve more than ‘epe’ and ‘afose’ and impeachment, they deserve imprisonment of the perpetrator.

          “Ayo Fayose … has turned Ekiti State to lawless and impunity dungeon.Ayo Fayose was installed governor of Ekiti State against the provision of Nigerian INEC constitution which forbids an impeached governor/president from running for elective office for ten years.Upon that Ayo Fayose invaded Ekiti State court-rooms and gotten two judges beaten up by his thugs,vandalized Ekiti court’s documents and harassed lawyers and workers.”
