Ekiti Assembly Crisis: Fayose reiterates commitment to Elders’ peace move

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has expressed commitment to

the peace move initiated by elders in the state, led by Chief Afe

Babalola (SAN),  to find political solution to the crisis between the

two factions in the State House of Assembly.
Governor Fayose said in a statement personally signed by him that he

was committed to the peace meeting scheduled to hold on Thursday at

the Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti.
“The peace of
Ekiti State is far and above all other interests and therefore

everyone should support the elders peace efforts.”

The statement reads: “Ekiti elders under the leadership of our highly

respected legal icon, Aare Afe Babalola (SAN),  called a meeting

between the two factions of the State House of Assembly to resolve

politically the crisis in the House of Assembly and I, as the State

governor does not have any objection because the peace of Ekiti is far

and above all other interests.
“The meeting is scheduled to hold at Afe Babalola University, Ado

Ekiti at 11am on Thursday.
“I therefore call on everybody to support this peace move and no one

should do anything to undermine it.
“Knowing how agitated and concerned the people of Ekiti have been on

this crisis, I wish to urge our people to give this peace effort a

chance and I urge all security agencies in the State to see to it that

adequate security is provided before, during and after the meeting.

“I thank Ekiti people for their unflinching support for the government

and appeal to them to continue to maintain peace, bearing in mind that

no society can progress in an atmosphere of rancour.”
