Fayose Seeks To Contest 2018 Gov Poll
Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose is not ruling out options to contest 2018 governorship poll in the state as his campaign posters spread across the state.
In a live broadcast on Ekiti State Television in Ado-Ekiti on Monday, Fayose said that his impeachment in 2006 was illegal, he would then have to approach the same court to interpret what that ruling meant and also consider seeking a re-election in 2018.
He said, “The continuity poster you see my image in and which is spreading across the state can be interpreted in two ways. First is the need for me to ask the apex court to explain its 2014 ruling that my so called impeachment in 2014 was illegal, null and void and consider a re-election in 2018 so that I can complete my term.
“Second is for me to get our own man, one who is like Ayo Fayose to continue after my tenure in 2018.”
Mr. Fayose was sworn in for the first term tenure in May 2003, but his tenure was terminated through impeachment on October 16, 2006.
