Governor Ayo Fayose has warned his detractors
not to take his recent offer of peace as a show
of cowardice.
Fayose also stated that God had put him in
office and anyone against the voice of God is
following Satan’s way.
The governor made the statements on Sunday,
April 19, 2015, during a thanksgiving service
organized for him at the Cathedral Church of
Emmanuel, Anglican Communion in Ado Ekiti, to
celebrate the recent Supreme Court verdict which
upheld his victory in the June 2014 elections.
“I asked for forgiveness for reconciliation and to
pursue genuine peace. Waiving the olive branch
does not mean cowardice, it is for peace.
Conspiracy is against God’s will. What better
way could one seek peace other than asking for
forgiveness,” Fayose said.
“The opposition should be courageous enough to
accept defeat. I’m enjoying the mandate of God
through his people and that cannot be
controverted. The people have spoken
(governorship election), they said it was military
intervention. They spoke the second term
(presidential election), is that one photochromic?
And they spoke again the third time (House of
Assembly election),” the governor added.
“If God that gave me victory cannot defend me, I
better go home. If the people cannot defend the
mandate they gave to me, I better go home.
Power doesn’t come from man. Power belongs
to God. Anyone against the voice of God is
following Satan’s way,” Fayose said.
Fayose also accused the opposition to plotting
to take power by force.
“In a democracy, you need a simple majority to
win elections, but I enjoy total majority. They
want to take government by force, firing shots at
people; that is coup against the people. They
said they are coming again tomorrow, we are
waiting for them,” he said.
The governor is currently embroiled in
impeachment proceedings brought against him
by the 19 All Progressives Congress (APC)
lawmakers in the state.
Upon winning in the Supreme Court, Fayose
urged his opponents to forgive him and embrace
peace but the lawmakers have said that the
impeachment plans would proceed as the
governor must be made to answer for his
actions.
