Ekiti State Crisis: APC Lawmaker Absent From Peace Meeting With Afe Babalola.

The peace move led by Chief Afe Babalola (SAN), to find a lasting political solution to the crisis between Governor Ayodele Fayose
and the two factions in the State House of Assembly seems to be dead on arrival as the meeting failed to hold because the All Progressives Congress lawmakers did not show as planned.
A source close to the meeting said the APC lawmakers said they will not meet with Fayose at Afe Babalola University, Ado EKiti, Ekiti state capital because of security reasons.
They source said they will only meet with him for peace talks at a neutral venue as they claimed that the governor has constituted a task force to monitor their movement within Ekiti state.
Although Fayose had stated that he was committed to meet with the lawmakers in the interest of the state but the presence of thugs at the State House of Assembly was cited as one of the reasons for the boycott by the lawmakers.
It would be recalled that since he was sworn in as governor of the state on 16 October 2014, Fayose has been having a running battle with members of the state House of Assembly elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Matters heated up when seven lawmakers purportedly impeached the Speaker, Dr Adewale Omirin and 18 other members of the state House of Assembly and elected their own speaker.
Fayose and the factional lawmakers made the state too hot for Omirin and his 18 colleagues and they fled to Lagos last year.
They regrouped in Ekiti after APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, won the 28 March election.
They immediately served a notice of impeachment on Fayose. The outrage that greeted the plan to impeach Fayose has thrown the state into crisis with
stakeholders calling for an end to impunity and lawlessness in the state.
