Harassment Of PDP Leaders, Nepotism, Buhari’s Greatest Achievements So Far, Says Fayose

Published

on

Ayo Fayose-BuhariGovernor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, on Sunday advised President Muhammadu Buhari to heed to the wise counsel of the National Peace Committee led by former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, which has advised him to tread cautiously on the ongoing anti-corruption campaign.
According to a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose noted that the National Peace Committee tactically told President Buhari to tread cautiously and be mindful of the fact that Nigeria is not under a military regime.
The governor, who said he was not unaware of the sinister plot to destabilise his government because of his strong and truthful stands on national issues, vowed not to be cowed by threat from any quarter.
His words: “opposition is one of the roots on which democracy stands and any President or Governor that does not want opposition will eventually become a dictator. I want to state without fear or favour that I will continue to speak the truth no matter whose ox is gored. Nigeria belongs to all of us and no one can intimidate me or the good people of Ekiti State who freely and overwhelmingly gave me their mandate. Democracy as a form of government thrives on our ability to ask questions and get answers from leaders”.
Fayose added that “the Peace Committee has reminded the president that he is not heading a military government and with the calibre of Nigerians in the Committee, their wise counsel should not be ignored. These are Nigerians who don’t need personal favours from the President and he should get the message very clearly that he is being told not to act as a dictator”.
Noting that Nigerians are not interested in any honeymoon, but their well-being, Gov. Fayose said: “Rather than concentrate and make a difference within his 100 days in office, the president’s greatest achievement so far is harassment of PDP leaders, appointment of his in-law and kinsmen into sensitive positions, selective fight against corruption and arrest and detention of INEC officials who worked in States won by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)”.
The Ekiti governor, however, declared his support for the fight against corruption as long as it is not done on the pages of newspaper.
“Fighting corruption should not be synonymous with convicting Nigerians on pages of newspapers. Rather, the judiciary and other relevant agencies should be allowed to do their jobs without any direct or indirect interference from the President and his party.
“Corruption must be fought in accordance with the laws of the land because going against the laws of the land and the oath taken by the President to respect the constitution in itself is corruption”, he said.

“In the first place, the reason, why everybody should join politics, is to serve the people. The essence of government is to shield the poor masses and ensure justice,” he said.

“My main mission of joining the APC is because I have seen justice, I have seen development and I have seen the desire for the leadership at the highest peak to sacrifice their personal comfort just to make the poor people feel good. So I am in the APC to deliver, I am into the APC to help the people.”

The lawmaker promised to work to make sure the APC takes back Adamawa State from the PDP in 2023.
