The lawmakers described the military panel report set up on 2014 Ekiti governorship election as a calculated means by the ruling All Progressives Party (APC) to remove Fayose.

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 assembly, which passed a vote of confidence on Fayose over his contributions to national politics and criticism of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, accused the military of bias, for restricting its findings to Ekiti State and exonerating officers who participated in Osun and Edo States polls.

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