The crisis between Ekiti state Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose and the 19 All Progressives Congress, (APC) lawmakers seems to have ended with a meeting between the feuding parties Monday.
The meeting, which was held and Blissworld Hotel, Ijapo, Akure in Ondo state, had in attendance the embattled Speaker of the House of Assembly, Dr Adewale Omirin and his deputy, Mr. Orisalade, the Commissioner of Police in Ekiti and the Director of the State Security Service (SSS) among others.
Although, none of the parties spoke to journalists after the meeting, Governor Fayose simply said it was in continuation of finding lasting peace in the state.
Rumour has been high that the APC lawmakers were due to sit in Ado Ekiti, the state capital anytime this week to conclude the process of impeachment of Fayose. They fell out since October last year immediately after the inauguration of the Governor which led to the seven PDP lawmakers approving and passing resolutions from the executive.
Some leaders of the state led by the legal icon, Chief Afe Babalola (SAN) had earlier brokered a meeting between the two factions which was boycotted by the APC lawmakers citing insecurity.
Monday’s meeting in Akure caught APC leaders unawares as some of them claimed that they were not aware of such a meeting. Although Omirin did not talk to the press he agreed with the position of the Governor that it was in continuation of the peace process in Ekiti state.
The Governor had ordered the stoppage of salaries and allowances of the lawmakers since October last year following their refusal to sit and their relocation outside the state and sealed up their Gas stations which led to the election of another Speaker from among the seven PDP lawmakers.
