APC Alleges Over 200 Armed Policemen Protecting Ekiti PDP Lawmakers

The All Progressives Congress has raised an alarm over what it called the acts of impunity in the State, where only seven members of the House of Assembly reportedly conducted a plenary on Monday morning, a day the house does not normally sit in plenary.

The party in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said over 200 armed policemen are currently offering protection to the seven PDP members of the House, who convened purposely to impeach the Speaker, approve the list of Commissioners-designate as well as the Caretaker Committees for the local councils in the state.

Mohammed in his statement said, ”The issue of the Caretaker Committees, which Governor Ayodele Fayose plans to swear in on Monday after the illegal approval by the House, is sub judice, hence the House cannot even discuss it not to talk of acting on it.

“Also, while the Governor was advised by the Clerk of the House that seven members out of 26 do not form a quorum, he said after all, only eight of 24 members in the Plateau House of Assembly impeached then Governor Joshua Dariye in 2006!”

” APC also warned that while a lot of unconstitutional and illegal activities have taken place under the PDP-led Federal Government, including the impeachment of then Governor Joshua Dariye of Plateau State by only eight out of 24 members of the State House of Assembly, any decision taken by only seven PDP members in the 26-member Ekiti House of Assembly will not stand.”
