Lagos - Gov Ayodele Fayose is in a fresh trouble.

Akingbolu is asking the court to declare that Fayose has lost his position as governor of Ekiti State.
He also sought, among others, an order directing President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in Ekiti State to avert breaking down of law and order, since there is a vacuum in governance.
Joined as defendants in the suit are the state’s Attorney General, Accountant-General of the Federation, and the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
