This is coming on the heels of the alleged invasion of the state House of Assembly by men of the Department of State Services (DSS).

The Secretary to the Ekiti state Government (SSG), Dr. Modupe Alade, in a statement said the people of the state will resist any attempt by the Buhari led administration to destabilise the state.

This is coming on the heels of the alleged invasion of the state House of Assembly by men of the Department of State Services (DSS).

Alade said it is glaring that the act was aimed at intimidating Governor Ayo Fayose, who she said has been a vocal critic of the government.

The SSG also claimed that she has been receiving calls from an alleged DSS operative, Paul Okafor, asking her to report to the agency’s office for her own good.

Alade also said  ” it is hoped that democracy and the rule of law will be allowed to thrive in Ekiti State and Nigeria as a whole. All attempts to truncate democracy in Ekiti State will be resisted by all means.

” It is quite unfortunate that the federal government has kept mute over this illegality. People now discuss in hush tones that DSS officials are in the state to arrest and bundle more legislators and some executive members, the SSG inclusive”

She said “I have no skeleton in my cupboard, but for them to be embarrassing me with phone calls, I will not accept that”

“we know all these are being done to Governor Fayose and those who are close to him because of his critical stance on the federal government and we are yet to see a constitution in Nigeria that makes speaking one’s mind on national issues a crime,” Alade said.

The party also added that Akanni is critically ill.
