PDP Chieftain, Adeola Ogunrinade said that the protest was staged to raise support and awareness of the attempted plot against Fayose.

"The people trooped out in the last election to vote for Governor Ayodele Fayose because he did well in his first coming. Although they truncated his tenure, we won't allow that this time," said Ogunrinade.

News24 Nigeria reported that a Federal High Court in Ado-Ekiti declined the request by Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose to de-freeze his account frozen by the EFCC.
