The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has described the broadcast made on Friday, to the people of the State by Governor Kayode Fayemi, on the political unrest in the State as a further demonstration of the governor’s wickedness and heartlessness.
The party said it was only a wicked leader that would address the State without at least, mentioning the name of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Chief Omolafe Aderiye that was murdered and sympathising with his family.
In a statement issued on Saturday and signed by the PDP State Publicity Secretary, Pastor Kola Oluwawole, the party wondered how what happened in the State High Court premises on Monday and Thursday could be more important to Governor Fayemi than the murder of an Ekiti son.
The party said; “Fayemi could not even pray for the repose of the soul of the slained Omolafe Aderiye in his so called state broadcast. He did not every mentioned his name. He just said someone was killed.
“So, in the wicked mind of Fayemi, Omolafe Aderiye, a prominent son of Ado-Ekiti, who led the NURTW for years was just someone?
“Instead of showing concern for the soul already lost, Fayemi’s concern was ‘Court Cases’ with which he intends to remain in power despite that Ekiti people rejected him totally on June 21, 2014.
“This is the height of wickedness!”
While describing Fayemi’s statement that he had “directed the Attorney General of the state to issue a legal advisory to the Chief Judge of the state and all the parties to the existing cases in the State High Court and the Ekiti State Governorship Elections Petitions Tribunal, on the desirability of seeking an alternative venue for the hearing of these cases outside Ekiti State” as an aberration, the PDP spokesperson said; “Obviously, Fayemi has lost it all.
“The governor has allowed himself to be taken over by desperation to remain in power such that he could not understand that what he asked the Attorney-General to do simply amount to interfering in the workings of the judiciary, a separate arm of government.”
