Buhari-Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, on Monday, dared President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in Rivers State over the bloody election re-run that took place over the weekend.

“You want to declare state of emergency, declare it and we will tell you that the state of emergency will not work too. This country belongs to all of us,” the Ekiti governor said shortly after the economic retreat organised by the National Economic Council inside the old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Fayose said he was aware of the president’s ‘state of emergency’ plan for Rivers and a similar plan for Ekiti State.

“They have been insinuating that (state of emergency) too in Ekiti. We have been waiting for them. Power has gone beyond the leaders; power has gone back to the people,” he said.

“If you watch the trend, PDP has always won all the elections after the annulment. Which means what happened in Rivers is just a service of ego of some individuals who believe they have Nigeria in their pockets and they can call the President at will to deploy the military.

“It is unfortunate that somebody would allow the military to kill his own people.

“I strongly condemn the elections in Rivers and charge that we sustain the legacy of transparent elections.

“For me in Ekiti, we learned from that and we are prepared. We prepare for election every day and we are fully prepared,” he added.

Fayose urged Buhari to sustain the legacy of free and fair elections which his administration inherited.

    Ayodele Fayose, believe me, you’re running your mouth faster than your legs. Is Rivers State where you govern? With all this sometimes unintelligent utterances you make, am not sure if you don’t need a medical attention.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his nationwide broadcast over the ongoing #EndSARS protest rocking the country.

Recall that Buhari in his speech called for an end to the protest, adding that his government had already accepted and started implementing demands of the protesters.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.

Reacting in a statement on Thursday night by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbodinyan, the PDP said Buhari’s address was depressing and failed empathy test.

The party appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youth, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of the nation.
