According to Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose has reportedly paid all transporters in Ekiti state to stop work today in order to prevent APC supporters from welcoming President Muhammadu Buhari into the state.

This is crazy. Fayose has paid all transporters in Ekiti to hand over all their vehicles so that there wonā€™t be any to bring the teeming supporters of our party from their various locations to receiveĀ MrĀ President.

All the vehicles as I write this are parkedĀ inthe premises of the Government House and local government secretariats across the state with the gatesĀ padlocked .Ā He has shut all markets and asked people not to come out to receiveĀ MrĀ President.

Alternative arrangements are being made to ensure we transportĀ everyoneĀ of our supporters to Ado Ekiti to giveĀ MrĀ President a befitting welcome.

This morning I feel like cursing every single person in our party and government who collaborated to truncate all efforts made by some of us to throw this guy out of our space before becoming a monster that he is today. I and my colleagues did everything legally possible at the inception of this administration to alert on the danger constituted by this fellow to our democracy and to our country.

We moved and made arrangements to impeach him when our party hadĀ majorityĀ in the house. Our party members and a number of the leaders betrayed us. Even when he installed a new set ofĀ lawmakers ,mostĀ of whom knew not their right hand from theirĀ left ,Ā I investigated them and came up with concrete evidence to show that 14 of his 26 lawmakers forged their school certificates to secure eligibility.

I haveĀ never ,Ā ever seen a situation where a governor has done this much to disrespect the President of his country no matter their political differences.

At theĀ heatĀ of the disagreement between Governor TINUBU and PresidentĀ Obasanjo ,Obasanjo paid a visit to Lagos State. Tinubu rolled out the red carpet and even sowed a uniform Aso Oke, for Obasanjo, himself and members of Obasanjoā€™s entourage with all the honors the President of the country deserved accorded him.

This was at a time Obasanjo refused to make Local Government allocations available to Lagos for almost two years.

From my vantageĀ positionĀ I want to say and stand to be corrected that no single allocation meant for Ekiti has been denied Ekiti since Fayose embarked on his war against President Buhari. EveryĀ programsĀ designed by the Federal Government toĀ reliefĀ the people of hardship has been made available to Ekiti.

In someĀ casesĀ it is the State Government that has been out of hostility refused to allow the citizenry to participate. A good example of this is the Home Grown Free School program that has so far benefittedĀ majorityĀ of school pupils across the country.

Fayose has serially abused theĀ president ,publicly wished him dead,Ā libeledĀ his wife andĀ children ,Ā insulted him outside the country and the President has not only refused to respond to him but has ordered all of us who work for him and could give Fayose in equal measure not to engage him.

What Fayose has done very sad and inexcusable. We hope he wonā€™t go ahead this morning and park trucks across the roads to block The President from having access to the venue of the rally. This fellow is capable of all that is indecent.

Sadly last week a band of rogues went to my house in Ekiti under the cover ofĀ night ,theygained access to my house by removing the burglaryĀ proof ,Ā broke down all the doors and carted away all my property and that of my wife. This is the first time since I built the house in 2003 that I will experience this. The police till now have not been able to fish out those responsible.

We shall not be deterred. We shall continue to work hard even at the risk of everything to bring sanity to our land.
