Fayose lambasts DSS, gives car to detained lawmaker


Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose yesterday said that the Directorate of State Security (DSS) only succeeded in tarnishing its own image by attempting to coerce members of the state Assembly to act the script of his detractors, which is to impeach him.

Fayose, who rewarded Afolabi Akanni who was detained for 18 days by the DSS, with a car gift, said this while hosting the lawmakers yesterday at the Jibowu Hall of his office.

His words: “This House of Assembly is very unique and exemplary. You have refused to be bought over. My detractors have money and influence, but Power of God starts where that of men stops. I’m so proud of you. You have shown that you can see beyond today. Wealth is not the amount of money in your bank, but your level of integrity. You represent and carry yourselves as responsible Nigerians. The Old testament has to give way to the new testament.
