The communique of their meeting which was co-signed by the aspirants and read by the Deputy Governor Olusola reads in part: “That the Supreme Court in the case of APC versus PDP & ORS resolved that the first tenure of Governor Peter Ayodele Fayose was unlawfully terminated in a civilian coup-like manner and hence deserves redress.’’
NAIJ.com had previously reported that Fayose recently declared that he would rule Nigeria as President and commander-in-chief very soon.
