Ado Ekiti - The Ekiti State House of Assembly has vowed to resist any attempt to remove the state governor, Ayodele Fayose from office, reports Daily Times.

The assembly, which hurriedly cut short its recess, which would have ended on January 25 for the special plenary presided over by the Speaker, Kola Oluwawole, accused the federal government of plotting to resort to extra-judicial means if the military panel fails to achieve its set target.

The lawmakers at the end of the sitting passed eight resolutions against the plot to remove Fayose.
