From Tade Oludayo, Ibadan
Special Assistant to the Ekiti State Governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka has told the factional Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Dr Adewale Omirin and his All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers to desist from what he termed “their voyage of self-destruction”.
According to him, “fighting against Governor Ayodele Fayose is like fighting against the wind.”
The governor’s aide, who was reacting to claim by the APC lawmakers that there was plan by Governor Fayose and himself to kidnap them and members of their families, added that; “the APC lawmakers must have concluded plans to kidnap themselves or their own children and blame it on the governor.”
Olayinka who noted that “having reached a dead and confused end in their Governor
Fayose’s impeachment project, the APC lawmakers might have concluded arrangements to use phony kidnap of themselves and some of their children to heighten tension in the State.”
The governor’s aide, who called on security agencies in the country and all Nigerians to be mindful of this plot by the APC, noted “between 2008 and 2010, APC used organised armed robbery and kidnapping to discredit the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
government of the then governor, Segun Oni.”
The governor’s aide wondered why using the Facebook to inform the public on the sinister movements and plots of the APC lawmakers should amount to threat to kidnap them.
He said; “Omirin and his co-jesters should rather seek forgiveness from God and Ekiti people who now see them as enemies of the State saying the APC legislators have reached a confused end.
“When you shunned peace meeting called by Ekiti elders and attended by such personalities like Aare Afe Babalola, Chief Ayo Ogunlade, Chief Deji Faduan, Dr Kunle Olajide and others, you are simply saying that Ekiti and its people do not mean anything to you. He concluded
