In the wake of the impeachment drama currently rocking Ekiti State, Adewale Omirin, the impeached Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly has fired a note of warning to Governor Ayo Fayose, stating that nothing was going to save him from being impeached from office.
Speaking via a statement issued by his Special Adviser, Wole Olujobi, Omirin said it was evident that Governor Fayose had not learnt his lessons after he was impeached as Governor in 2006.
Omirin further accused Governor Fayose of blatantly disregarding the constitution and inimidating public office holders with thugs.
The statement read in part: “It will soon dawn on Fayose and his aides that the matter at hand goes beyond exuberant media skirmishes that are being deployed to rally support for the governor.
“It is good that his men are talking in the media about the need to uphold the constitution in this matter even though they behave short of upholding the constitution in their conduct.
“These men that are flying the governor’s banner will soon see the law in action. This impeachment process is real. We must rescue Ekiti state from lawlessness and fraud.
“We thought his impeachment trauma in 2006 would have thought him a lesson, but the governor has proved that he cannot survive in a society where the law works.
“We have again seen the resumption of state-sponsored terrorism with thugs attacking and maiming Ekiti people after a break in 2006 when the governor was impeached for fraud and attacks on opponents.
“The governor trampled on the same constitution when he led thugs to attack judges in court and tore court records in the chief judge’s office, our duty is to follow constitutional path in this impeachment process.
“Attention of the world has shifted to Ekiti state following the leaked tape detailing electoral fraud perpetrated to give Fayose victory. After that, several issues in Ekiti state are being questioned on the place of the constitution in nurturing democracy in the country, and as responsible citizens, we must act right to make democracy work.”
