Governor Ayodele Fayose has said the allegation of treasonable comments against him by the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is ridiculous and from those he called unsound minds.
Fayose also cried out in a statement that “APC is calling for a coup d’etat against an elected governor, whose tenure is fixed and mode of removal from office is stipulated in the Constitution.”
The party urged security agencies not to underestimate Fayose, saying the governor made the latest threat because he got away with alleged impunity of the past.
In a statement by its state Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, APC urged security agents to protect the integrity of the Constitution being challenged by Fayose’s alleged seditious remarks, which constitute a threat to the nation’s democracy.
The party accused Fayose of recruiting 10 thugs in each of the 16 local government areas for “training” in Ifaki with Toyota Hilux vans allegedly put at their disposal for undisclosed purposes.
It berated Fayose, saying the governor “must have been acting under psychological stress that had denied him emotional sanity”.
APC said the governor was also being haunted by his sordid past, especially the rigging of Ekiti election.
The party demanded investigation into the latest outburst from the governor, adding that his threat to bring down the President Muhammadu Buhari administration should be dealt with if found treasonable.
