EKITI, OCTOBER 17, 2016 – The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ekiti state has noted that the state governor, Ayodele Fayose, has turned himself into a “lone enemy” of President Muhammadu Buhari, even as it revealed the reason behind Fayose’s unrelenting criticism of the Buhari administration.Ekiti APC, in a statement issued on Monday in Ado-Ekiti by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, stated that Fayose is attacking the federal government as a way of having a reason to accuse it of witch-hunt when the governor is made to answer for his alleged infractions on the law.
Before now, the Ekiti governor had explained that his constant attacks on Buhari was based on his sense of responsibility as the most senior governor in Nigeria.
Disagreeing with this position, Ekiti APC said,“It is unfortunate that the governor of a state known for decency and honour could utter such a horrible statement over a very sensitive national issue that borders on the lives of young school girls whose parents have been in agony in the last two years.
“Nigerians know that Fayose is a reckless talkative who plays politics with everything and anything but never in their imagination think he can be so heartless to say the girls were not missing.
“Now that the 21 girls were shown live on TV being reunited with their parents in an emotional ceremony, will Fayose still say it was stage-managed?
“Fayose is taking his pound of flesh from the Federal Government for his several infractions on the law over which federal agencies are investigating him and he believes that the best way to blackmail the Federal Government is ceaseless criticism so that he can accuse Buhari of witch-hunt when eventually the law beckons to account for his lawless conducts.”
