FINALLY REVEALED: The Hidden Secrets Behind Ekiti State Crisis (LOOK)

As the political crisis in Ekiti deepens, allegations are rife that the plan to judicially stop governor-elect, Ayodele Fayose, from taking over the reins of power, is a self-preservation battle.

A senior citizen of the state told newsmen that he was already making efforts to open the eyes of Governor Kayode Fayemi to the alleged agenda of those involved, which he said was purely selfish.

The elder statesman who said he never supported Fayose, disclosed that some of those behind the plot had allegedly been managing properties belonging to the state in the last four years, without allegedly remitting any money into the coffers of the state.
Though he was convinced that the state could still re-elect Fayemi after Fayose’s tenure, he disclosed that the fear of imminent probe of the handling of funds accruing from the properties was the underlying objective of the suit seeking to stop Fayose from being governor.

Days after his re-election, Fayose had said he would not probe Fayemi’s administration. The commercialised public property were said to have been built by Fayose during his first tenure and he had expressed his disappointment with their handling in the course of Fayemi’s tenure, fuelling the suspicion that a probe might be in the offing. It was learnt that it was almost certain that Fayose as governor would take these property from those currently managing them and a probe into their finances might follow.

It was also learnt that moves have commenced to reconcile the Chief Judge of Ekiti State, Justice Daramola and Fayose for harmonious working relationship in days ahead. An involved source revealed that both men would need to sit together and iron out differences before commencing inter-governmental relationship. Daramola shut all courts down after he and two other judges were allegedly manhandled by Fayose’s supporters.

Those behind the reconciliation move reportedly reasoned that it was certain both men would work together and a frosty start to their working together could further deepen the crisis in the state. The source debunked insinuations that Daramola would be a willing tool in the hands of the majority members of Ekiti House of Assembly, who are allegedly waiting in the wings to impeach Fayose at the slightest opportunity, with Daramola being expected to play along.

It was learnt that a deep-seated mistrust between Fayose and Daramola, could also end the jurist’s career prematurely.
