Fayose blasts, says "I Don’t Need Police, DSS Protection Again"

Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose on Wednesday declared that he does not need the officers of the Nigeria Police and the Department of State Services (DSS) to give him protection again.

He called on the Federal Government to withdraw the police and DSS men accusing the two security agencies of working for the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government.

Fayose made the outbursts during this year’s International Women’s Day celebration held at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium in Ado Ekiti, the state capital.


He boasted that the APC-led Federal Government cannot capture power from him in the 2018 governorship election.

Addressing a mammoth crowd that thronged Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, Ado Ekiti, venue of the rally, Fayose declared that he has the support of the people to defeat the APC and its federal might in the 2018 polls.

He also reiterated his support for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) National Caretaker Committee Chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, saying he does not recognize the National Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.

The governor dared the Federal Government to remove officers of the Nigeria Police and Department of State Services (DSS) protecting him saying “I have local people behind me giving me protection...
“Anybody moving against my government will be removed; anybody that wants to topple me will not finish their government.

“Tell them, I don’t need their policemen, I don’t need their SSS. Let them come and remove their policemen and SSS. I don’t want APC police, I don’t want APC SSS, these people are my police.”
