“Nigerians will also recall that one of the known opposition voice apart  from some individuals and governors of our Party that has exposed the  APC led administration for running the Country aground in the last one  year is the former spokesman of the PDP Presidential Campaign  Organization, Chief Femi Fani Kayode; and he is now standing trial for receiving campaign funds from the Director of Finance of the Campaign.

“It’s now the turn of the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose who has  been consistent in condemning the woes the APC government brought upon  Nigerians and for remaining critical of the APC and President Buhari’s  administration.

“The Party condemns the freezing of Governor Fayose’s personal account  and asked the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, to free the  bank account immediately saying that the action violates Section 308 of  1999 Constitution as a sitting Governor cannot stand trial until after  office.

“President Buhari and his Party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) has  introduced a dangerous trend in our policy and if this is not checked or  curtailed immediately, Nigeria may be heading to an imperial rule where  the leader of the nation is a supreme ruler dictating who survives at  the expense of Nigeria Constitution” Adeyeye said .
