Ekiti lawmakers are thugs and school dropouts – APC

The APC in Ekiti state has described the lawmakers in the new state House of Assembly as miscreants and school dropouts.

According to the APC, Governor Ayo Fayose deliberately selected his cronies and people with questionable characters as lawmakers in order to satisfy his selfish ambition.

The state Publicity Secretary of the APC, Taiwo Olatubosun, released a statement on Sunday, June 7, saying that “only a few of them are worthy of the exalted position of legislators.”

“We all saw the intrigues that characterised the primaries that returned the new members. It was ballot snatching and violence on a massive scale during the April 11 Assembly poll.

“Fayose just selected his cronies across the state above well-educated members and imposed them on the party. Most of them are miscreants and school dropouts who Fayose compensated as honourable members.

“Fayose’s public declaration of political death for any member who works against his interest points to where Ekiti people are headed in the business of law making in the next four years.

“We saw the first public declaration of loyalty by the Assembly members on the day of inauguration when they all prostrated for Fayose in the chambers, stating he is their father.

“Because of their inadequacies, they will legitimise and encourage illegality and impunity because they won’t understand the nitty-gritty of lawmaking process and independence of mind required in making laws that benefit the larger society outside the narrow interest of the governor.

“We cannot compare this fifth Assembly with the outgoing Assembly in terms of composition of members. The last Assembly was composed of members who have seen it all. They are professionals, such as lawyers, medical doctors, pharmacists, architects, policy makers, public analysts and retired top civil servants.

“These are the educated people Fayose will not work with because of their courage and independence of mind. In their place are Fayose’s thugs and those that helped him to undermine the law to always have his way.

“Ekiti people should brace for many surprises and bizarre legislations from this assembly mostly composed of the people of questionable character working with the governor to achieve predetermined ends.”
