Outgoing Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, has disclosed what recently transpired between him and the former DSS boss, Lawal Daura.
While speaking in Abuja on Sunday night at a send-off party organised for him by his colleagues in the PDP Governors’ Forum, outgoing Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, disclosed that the former DG of the DSS, Lawal Daura, twice asked him to support the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to Nigerian Tribune, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, on Monday, he quoted Fayose as saying that it was for that reason that Daura coordinated the security onslaught against him and his supporters during the July 14 governorship election in the state.
“If I had agreed to the proposal and operated like a bat, who has the features of an animal and a bird, they would not have attempted to muzzle me. I am not one of those that would be silenced or who will go and take cover under his wife’s bed because some people want to play God.
”I cannot deceive you, I can fight but rather than fight the PDP, I will deploy my energy to fight those holding our country hostage and retarding its growth by their incapability. The time is up for them and they know this,” he said.
