The former Ekiti State governor and Chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has lamented that no part of the country is safe and called on Nigerians to restrict their movements to avoid falling victims of terrorists, who have taken over the entire country.
In a statement yesterday by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, the Ex-governor said that the issue of Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami has further exposed the government’s hypocrisy and complicity.
He said: “It is saddening and worrisome that spokesmen of the president are the ones going from one media house to another to defend someone who openly supported terrorists.
“In the last three days, over 300 Nigerians have been killed across the country, with several others in captivity, and this is still not enough for President, Muhammadu Buhari and his men to wear sackcloth and cover themselves with ashes. Rather, they are seen making merry as if nothing has happened.”
Fayose said it was painful that Nigeria was being governed by people who were at one time or the other nominated as Boko Haram negotiator while their lieutenants are those who have openly faulted military action against Boko Haram terrorists and rejected its categorisation as a terrorist organization.
He said, “It is funny that today, if those running the affairs of the country are not telling us that armed bandits must be seen as innocent until proven guilty, they will be saying offence of forgery is more grievous than open declaration of support for terrorists.
“Because of their inability to take decisive actions against these terrorists that they appear to have sympathy for, Nigeria is no longer safe for anyone to live in.”
