Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, has fired back at the All Progressives Congress, APC, for saying he is a major security threat to Nigeria.
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor said on Monday, March 28, 2016 that the APC is the real threat to the nation considering the way the nation is going under their administration.
He said: “The major threat to national security is a party that lost election since June 21, 2014 and still trying to get back to power, using crude means including turning itself to the mouthpiece of the Department of State Services, DSS.
“It is only in Nigeria that a party that ran Ekiti State aground in four years and was rejected in six straight elections by the people can still be talking.
“The question that Nigerians must ask the APC Spokesperson in Ekiti State, Taiwo Olatunbosun is whether he now doubles as the DSS spokesperson.
“In the last three weeks, everything the APC speculated that the DSS was going to do was exactly what the security agency did and that has reinforced the belief that the DSS was working in collaboration with the APC in Ekiti State to destabilise the Fayose-led government.
“It is also a fact that the chairman of APC in Ekiti State, Chief Jide Awe who is standing trial for murder was hosted to a dinner in the Presidential Villa while TKO Aluko on whose bench warrant was issued for alleged perjury is going about with armed security men.
According to him, the APC-led administration proved they are a real threat to the nation with the silence towards the recent genocide by the Fulani herdsmen in Agatu Benue State and women were raped, farmlands destroyed by the herdsmen in other parts of the country.
He added: “Or what should Nigeria call a party that caused the murder of over 20 Nigerians, including Youth Corps member in Bayelsa and Rivers States just because of desperation to win elections?
“When you try to truncate democratically elected government, deny Nigerians rights to fair hearing by detaining them indefinitely and disobey court orders, while also failing to conduct free and fair elections, what is such a government inviting other than breakdown of law and order? And what should such a party in power be called other than security threat to Nigeria.”
