The 26 members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly have declared that they do not have any apology for showing absolute loyalty to the State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, saying that “nothing will forever prevent them from standing by Ekiti people and Governor Fayose, because it is through the grace of God and his (Fayose) grace that we are here.”

The State House of Assembly members said “instead of having sleepless nights over how Governor Fayose chooses to dress, the few elements remaining in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State should face issues, especially the government of inconclusiveness being ran in Abuja by the party.”

Speaking with journalists in Ado Ekiti on Friday, the House Committee Chairman on Information, Hon Gboyega Aribisogan said the APC should know that the House of Assembly is not one that will collaborate with the executive to run the State aground as done under the APC government of Dr Kayode Fayemi.

The lawmakers, who described the APC spokesperson, Taiwo Olatunbosun as a shameless hypocrite, said; “When as Deputy Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Fayose made him Acting Governor; he accepted the position and acted as governor. If in his own estimation, Fayose was not wrong then, is it because he is now in the APC that has made it wrong for Fayose to dress the way he dressed when he made him (Olatunbosun) Deputy Speaker and later acting governor?”

Speaking further, the lawmakers said; “Instead of them to face issues, especially concerning their party that is almost going into extinction in Ekiti and the cluelessness going on in Abuja, they have turned themselves into Governor Fayose’s advisers on mode of dressing and public presentation.

“Is it our fault that APC does not have a single member in the House of Assembly? And what has what Governor Fayose wears got to do with governance? What did Ekiti people gain from the four years ‘agbada wearing’ government of APC apart from monumental debt that will take the State up till year 2036 to pay?

“The reality that those in APC must face is that if they are waiting for us to confront Governor Fayose on issues of governance, they will wait till eternity.”
