Politics Fayose Makes Fresh Accusations Against President Buhari



Hours after President Muhammadu Buhari arrived Nigeria from London, Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose convened a press conference accusing him of plotting to impeach him.

According to Fayose, the Federal Government plans to use the EFCC to hatch the plan. He said there are clandestine plots to arrest key members of his administration and detain them indefinitely until they say something to incriminate him.

“I called you here to intimate the public through your various medium, of the new clandestine plot by the President Muhammadu Buhari led All Progressives Congress, APC, Federal Government to destabilise the Ekiti state government, using the instrumentalities of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

“A few days ago, we got it on good authority that there was a meeting with some politicians from Ekiti state, including an Ekiti born Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN and self-professed human rights activist by agents of the Federal government, with the agenda solely, on how to bring down my administration as the governor of the state.

“Activities of these elements that are obviously afraid of facing another electoral defeat in 2018 are being coordinated through the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Mr Babachir Lawal and the Attorney General of the Federation.

“Certain top functionaries of the Ekiti state government and some important members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ekiti state, and some associates of mine, have now been penciled down for arrest and indefinite detention by the EFCC under the guise of investigating the funds spent by the PDP on the June 21, 2014 governorship election and the Presidential election.”

“The game plan is to detain those to be arrested indefinitely, force them to make statements incriminating me, while at the same time feeding the public with orchestrated fake reports, using their usual media organs.

“The plot is to arrest and detain indefinitely my Chief of Staff, Chief Dipo Anisulowo and four honorable members of the state House of Assembly for treason.

“To achieve this sinister plot against the government and people of Ekiti State, we have been informed that some of their trusted allies in the EFCC have been mobilised to move to Ekiti any moment from now” he alleged.
