affront on the constitution and a brazen conduct
suggesting that democracy was dead in Ekiti

unto himself and a threat to democracy in
Nigeria, showing contempt for the law and would
do anything to undermine the integrity of the
supremacy of the constitution.

law, Fayose has demonstrated several times that
he has no respect for the nation’s constitutional
democracy and the rule of law.

present the budget has confirmed our earlier

home with which he unleashed terror on the
opposition during the Presidential and National
Assembly elections,” he explained.
