The Governor of Ekiti State , Mr . Ayodele Fayose, has written the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria , Justice Walter Onnoghen , alleging fresh plots by the All Progressives Congress to compromise a section of the judiciary to remove him from office .

Fayose said this was aimed at silencing him as the voice of opposition in the country because he had bluntly rejected all overtures to to defect to the ruling APC or stop talking .

The governor , who warned against any plot to destabilise Ekiti State , wondered how long the Ekiti APC and its collaborators would pursue their clandestine agenda of reversing an election they lost over 30 months ago and validated by the tribunal , appeal court and the Supreme Court .

In a letter to Onnoghen , Fayose stated , “ Certain APC chieftains are again making subterranean moves to manipulate and compromise a section of the judiciary , particularly some judges , to get through the backdoor what they failed several times to achieve through the ballot box as well as in the open court , even in matters already decided by the Supreme Court .

“ At a recent meeting held in Ado Ekiti , the state capital , at which several stalwarts and chieftains of the APC were in attendance , two former governors of the state and members of the APC , namely Mr . Segun Oni and Dr. Kayode Fayemi , now a federal minister, boasted that there is no going back on the latest plans to subvert the will of the people of Ekiti freely given; wrest the governance of Ekiti from me at all costs before the expiration of my tenure in October 2018 through orchestrated but dubious legal process ; and thereby render nugatory the sacred mandate of the people given unto me openly and unequivocally when I won in all the 16 local governments of the state while the then incumbent governor , Kayode Fayemi , recorded zero . ”

Fingering the hands of the Presidency in the latest plot , with Oni and Fayemi as the local arrowheads , the governor alleged that a concocted fresh suit was being rehashed and to be filed against him on the same “ old allegation” that had been trashed up to the Supreme Court .

According to him , this time , the plotters of the plan to procure the services of a compromised or malleable judge to get self - serving ‘ jankara ’ and kangaroo judgment with the intention of having the Supreme Court reverse itself on the June , 2014 Ekiti election .

“ Segun Oni and Kayode Fayemi boastfully claimed that they have enlisted the assurances of Justice XYZ and one or two other judges in the concocted fresh suit, hinged on the report of a useless , senseless and orchestrated military report not known to the electoral law , ” he added .

Fayose prayed that the judiciary would not succumb to devious plots to undermine its independence and integrity and rubbish its good name and hard - earned reputation any more .

But the Special Assistant on Media to Fayemi , Mr Yinka Oyebode , said he would rather not dignify Fayose’ s ranting with a response .

Describing the allegation as “ purely a cheap blackmail that will not fly , ” Oyebode added that , “ It is simply a case of the wicked running when no one pursues.

“ It would appear Governor Fayose wakes up daily in search of new controversies and making one spurious allegation after another; and it does not really matter to him whether such allegations are reasonable , logical or sensible .

“ This allegation is not only irresponsible ; it is quite unfair to the two former governors of the state .

“ And one is not surprised at this, because under Fayose falsehood has been elevated to the level of statecraft , sustained by the machinery of state .

“ My advice to him is : Let the governor go and honour the promises he made to the Ekiti electorate ( if he ever made any ) . Let him pay workers their salaries , take governance more seriously and make the state safe for lives , property and investments.

“ If he can do these , then , he needs not fear no one.

“ However , this is certainly a poorly contrived alibi for his ineptitude and apparent low capacity for the serious business of governance. ”

Also on Wednesday at a news conference in Lagos , Fayose restated his position that the APC was plotting his removal from office because he refused to join the APC and his persistent criticisms of the government .

Fayose also insisted on his allegation that Fayemi and Oni were making moves to compromise some judges to remove him from office before the expiration of his tenure in 2018 .

“ There is a fresh plot by the APC to compromise a section of the judiciary and muzzle democracy in their desperation to oust me from office . The essence is to silence me as the voice of the opposition in the country because I have bluntly rejected all overtures to defect to the ruling APC or stop talking ,” he said .

Fayose said the APC leaders denied that they asked him to join the ruling party because “ if a lady turns you down, you hardly say she did . ”

Condemning the Federal Government for failing to address the killings in Southern Kaduna , Fayose said it was unfortunate that Christians were the major victims of the attacks.

He said the gory pictures of Christians killed in Southern Kaduna had made him sleepless , adding that it was more disturbing and worrisome because “nobody had been brought to book . ”

The governor added , “ Christians are seriously endangered in Kaduna and they are hiding without food because the moment they reveal their identities, they would be killed . I could not sleep when I saw the gory pictures .

Irrespective of whether we are of the APC or the Peoples Democratic Party , we must rise up to defend the helpless .

“ Where are all those talking when former President Goodluck Jonathan was in government ? It is regrettable that all have been silenced by the authoritarian President Muhammadu Buhari administration . Rather than waste their time plotting my removal, they should go and prepare ahead of the 2018 governorship election in Ekiti . ”

Fayose declined to speak on whether he was part of those behind the proposed mega party , stating that talks about the emergence of the mega party had justified his prediction .

The Ekiti State governor disclosed that he had petitioned Justice Onnoghen on a fresh suit being planned against him “ on the same allegations that have been trashed by the Supreme Court . ”

The governor insisted that no Chibok girls had been rescued , arguing that the failure to release the rescued girls to their parents for the Yuletide showed that something was amiss .

He slammed the military for claiming to have recovered Abubakar Shekau ’ s flag and Quran , noting that anybody could hire an artist to design the flag .
