…advises Nigerians to limit their movements for their own protection.
Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has characterised the current situation in Nigeria as “appalling,” in which the Presidency is accused of employing and defending Boko Haram terrorists and armed bandits.
The former governor also urged Nigerians to limit their movements to avoid being victims of terrorists who have taken control of the entire country, expressing concern that no place in the country is secure.
The question of Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has further revealed the government’s hypocrisy and complicity, according to Fayose’s Media Aide, Lere Olayinka, who added that “it is saddening and worrisome that spokesmen of the president were the ones moving from one media house to another to defend someone who openly supported terrorists.”
“Over 300 Nigerians have been killed in the last three days across the country, with many others held captive, and this is still not enough for President Muhammadu Buhari and his men to wear sackcloth and cover themselves with ashes,” he lamented. Rather, they seem to be having a good time as if nothing has happened.”
The former Governor said it was painful that Nigeria was being governed by people who had been nominated as Boko Haram negotiators at one point or another, while their lieutenants have publicly opposed military action against the terrorist group and denied its classification as a terrorist organisation.
He claimed that those in power in Nigeria, especially at the federal level, were behaving as if the country was about the government and them, rather than the country and its citizens.
With the killings of Nigerians from the north, south, east, and west, Fayose said Nigerians must be eager to send the APC government packing in 2023, after making the mistake of electing this clueless individual in 2015. In reality, the wait between now and 2023 would be excruciating for Nigerians.
“It’s ironic that today, if those in charge of the country’s affairs aren’t telling us that armed bandits must be treated as innocent until proven guilty, they’ll argue that forgery is more serious than open support for terrorists.
“Nigeria is no longer safe for us to live in because of their failure to take decisive action against these terrorists with whom they seem to sympathise.
“Terrorists have taken over our highways, and Nigerians, including traditional rulers, are now being kidnapped from their bedrooms.
“As a result, my advice to Nigerians is to remain in their domains during this period and avoid travelling around the world. Many who are living in rural areas should try to relocate to a more populous region.
“I pray that God will bring our country back to peace and normalcy.”
