“We, however, wish to tell the plotters of evil against the government of Ayodele Fayose and by extension the people of Ekiti State that we, members of the State House of Assembly are not interested in their evil plot. “We are prepared to spend the rest of our tenure in DSS cell, instead of joining people that we roundly defeated in five straight elections to cause another political instability in Ekiti State.
“These agents of destabilisation should be reminded of the 2006 episode, which was responsible for Ekiti State having six governors in three years! “Most importantly, Governor Fayose is our benefactor. He is our leader on whose political strength we are members of the State House of Assembly. We can even be called his stooges, we don’t mind. We will never do anything to jeopardise his interest and be extension, interests of Ekiti people. “We therefore wish to state unequivocally that we are not interested in any $1 million. “We won’t because of any blood money join forces with enemies of our State, who are desirous of destabilising the State just because they lost power.”
