I will contest in 2018 to complete my truncated first term – Fayose

By  | 

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State on Monday, said he would contest the 2018 gubernatorial election ‎so that he could serve his term which was truncated in 2006.

Fayose was impeached in 2006.

However, the Supreme Court in 2014 nullified the impeachment that ousted him from office about seven months to the end of his first term.

Speaking in a live broadcast on Ekiti State Television in Ado-Ekiti on Monday evening, Fayose who was explaining why he chose to put his image on a campaign poster currently circulating the nooks and cranny of the state, said that since the apex court had said that. His impeachment in 2006 was illegal, he would then have to approach same court to interprete what that ruling means and also consider seeking a re-election in 2018.

” The Continuty poster you see my image in and which is spreading across the state can be interpreted in two ways. First is the need for me to ask the apex court to explain its 2014 ruling that my so-called impeachment in 2014 was ‎illegal, null and void and consider a re-election in 2018 so that I can complete my term.

“Second is for me to get our own man,  one who is like Ayo Fayose to continue after my tenure in 2018.,”
