They set up tents, music and fire! Fayose supporters bombard Ekiti state assembly’s complex entrance (Photos)

Supporters of the Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)  have blocked  the state assembly’s complex entrance, setting up tents, music and fire.
 This mini carnival is in a bid to waylay Ekiti state APC law makers and stop them from alleged impeachment plot against  governor Ayo Fayose

According to reports by the Nigerian Tribune  the supporters’ action followed “strong, credible rumours” that
the APC members of the assembly were planning to hold a sitting  yesterday in order to impeach Governor Fayose.
Supporters of the PDP, literally took over the roads leading to the state house complex, pitched  tents, and set up a mini carnival in order to waylay any event from the rumoured plan.
They were at the venue
under the watch of policemen, as well as men of the Department of State
Security (DSS), who were in a total of nine Toyota Hilux vans and who took strategic  positions at the entrances of the Assembly’s complex.
Some notable members of the PDP who spotted at the  funfare included the
deputy governor, Dr Kolapo Olusola, former Speaker, House of Assembly, Mr Tunji
Odeyemi, Special Assistant to the Governor on Information, Mr Lanre Ogunsuyi,
his colleague in the Public Communications, Lere Olayinka, among others.
One of the members of the party
told said that, they
“heard that the APC
lawmakers planned to sneak into the assembly and we had to move our picnic
to the Assembly complex and bring the deserted streets to life with our music.”
Ogunsuyi also said that, “The new Nigeria which
President Goodluck Jonathan and Major-General Muhammadu Buhari all campaigned
for is the one that would respect the rule of law. With this convergence, you
can see that the people are standing by their governor. They are ready to
defend their mandate.
“Nobody asked Omirin
and other APC lawmakers not to come to the Assembly, they only decided to
abdicate their duties since last year November 17. Impeachment procedure does
not start and end with Assembly alone. The Judiciary is involved; so, this plan
is highly condemnable.
“We want to emphasise
that they are welcome, as long as they are concerned about making laws for the
progress of the state, but if it was meant to come and impeach Governor Fayose,
we won’t allow that.”

We found where Patience Jonathan has been hiding, following results of March 28 polls

Patience Jonathans' Stylist
It appears that Patience Jonathan has gone into hiding since the announcement of the March 28 presidential election results which did not favour her husband President Goodluck Jonathan.

Mama Peace who has not been seen in public since this announcement is hibernating somewhere in the United Kingdom away from  public gaze.
She was noticeably absent from the Good Friday service which held
inside the Aso Villa Chapel, neither did she show up for  the Easter Sunday service.

Well, we can not blame her, can we?

After  series of  rigorous campaigns with no result, the body sure needs some rest ;)

A former government official told Punch newspapers that: “After
meeting the President in the new Banquet Hall located...

In the words of Winston Churchill: "Never,
never, never give up."

I'm aware of the intimidation that a lot of you
might be facing as we head into the final stretch of this election campaign. I
get it. I understand what you are going through because I also had to face it
in the course of this campaign, if this serves as any consolation.
One thing I've learnt in life, however, is that the
people who threaten you, knowingly or unknowingly, further validate your
importance and underscore advantage. I would like...
