The Chairman , House Committee on Information in the Ekiti Stat House of Assembly, Hon Gboyega Aribisogan, has denied the allegation of ganging up with those opposed to Governor Ayodele Fayose within the‎ Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and beyond to derail his administration.
Aribisogan said he had displayed unflinching loyalty and commitment to the Fayose’s political empire, even at the most difficult times, adding that those peddling the rumour were not only plotting to divide the assembly, but had begun desperate moves for the 2019 elections.

The Deputy Speaker, Hon Segun Adewumi and Aribisogan, narrowly escaped impeachment and subsequent suspension on Tuesday for allegedly hobnobbing with Senator Buruji Kashamu, presidential Adviser on Political matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu and an eminent lawyer, Femi Falana, to heat up the polity and create atmosphere of crisis in the state.

Despite that the duo of Adewumi and Aribisogan, representing Ekiti West and Ikole constituencies 1 respectively, escaped being suspended over the allegation, a source in the assembly hinted‎ that the assembly members were still plotting to suspend the lawmakers .

They were also alleged to be fraternizing with the embattled PDP secretary in Ekiti, Dr Tope Aluko, a former PDP Chieftain and now APC Stalwart, Yinka Akerele and others to pull the government down.

At a press conference in Ado Ekiti on Friday, Aribisogan denied ever holding any meeting with Senator Buruji and other suspected enemies of‎ the government, saying he would never betray the confidence reposed in him by the governor.
