|Fayose Begs For Forgiveness by ijaola(m): 2:55pm On Apr 18, 2015|
Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said he is ready for dialogue with his opponents to bring peace to the state.
He also asked for forgiveness from those he might have offended, saying “nobody is perfect.”
Fayose spoke on Friday at a special prayer session organised for him by the Ansar-udeen Mosque, Atikankan in Ado-Ekiti to celebrate his recent electoral victory at the Supreme Court.
The 19 All Progressives Congress lawmakers of the Ekiti State House of Assembly have issued a notice of impeachment to the governor, citing eight impeachable offences.
The embattled Speaker, Dr. Adewale Omirin, had last week Thursday requested the state Chief Judge, Justice Ayodeji Daramola, to raise a seven-man panel within seven days of receipt of the letter to investigate Fayose and his deputy, Dr. Kolapo Olusola, over allegations of impunity, violence and stalking among other constitutional breaches.
Fayose said, “If they say someone has enemies, I’m number one in the world. But God has been merciful and has been helping me to overcome my challenges.
“I need your prayers because it will strengthen me more. I’m here in the mosque to thank God.
“All I want is peace. I have a constitutionally guaranteed tenure. A governor is judged by his achievements in office. All I’m interested in is to bring development to my people. My opponents know if I have a rest of mind I will achieve my objectives.
“All those I have offended should forgive me for the sake of the masses and orphans. They should know people gave me the mandate. Nobody is above mistake; they should forgive me.”
The governor said a lot of people in the state had been living in palpable fear of the unknown before the judgment of the Supreme Court.
“We are here to thank God and pray for peace. I’m appealing to those aggrieved to please allow peace to reign.
“There is no perfect man. They should allow peace to reign. All I want is peace that will energise development.
“Anything that can bring peace cannot be wished away. For me, I’m ready to accommodate everybody. Whatever they want we can sit down and talk.”
Earlier before leading the prayers for the governor, the State Missioner of the Ansarudeen Movement, Alhaji Liadi Adebayo, called on politicians in the state to settle their differences.
He canvassed for peaceful co-existence of the entire people of the State, irrespective of their political differences.
The Cleric urged residents to live together in harmony as politics was not supposed to be a do or die affair.

He's now starting to make sense. He should have taking this part of peace from the inception of his government instead of running his mouth and abusing everybody. I just hope the APC on their part will consider the general interest of the people of the state and sheate their sword. Enough of all this crisis.

Peace to reign.Tomorrow another governor rigs his way in,gets 3 members to override a house of 50;_intimidates opponents, prevents people from willingly exercising their franchise in order to win elections and after achieving all these turns around to beg d same people he had used unconstitutional means to displace to give peace a chance.
There cannot and should not be peace for d wicked.
