Fayose Unfit Advocate For Adherence To The Rule Of Law – Ekiti APC

APC-FayoseThe Ekiti State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has declared that Governor Ayo Fayose is unfit to advocate for adherence to the rule of law in Nigeria, saying “a lot of impunity and constitutional breaches have been committed under his watch” in the state.
The party, which was reacting to Fayose’s latest outburst against President Buhari to “tread cautiously” in his war against corruption since the country was not under a military regime, said “it is contradictory for a serial lawbreaker to suddenly become a self-appointed apostle and advocate of the rule of law”.
Fayose had alleged that he was aware of “sinister plots” to destabilize his government because of his “strong and truthful stands on national issues”.
He, however, vowed to continue speaking the truth no matter whose ox is gored, saying “any president or governor that does not want opposition will eventually become a dictator”.
But the Ekiti APC in a statement issued on Tuesday by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, described the “ceaseless attacks and insults” on Buhari by Fayose as a “devious bad-mouthing and reckless diversionary tactics to take away public attention from his many alleged constitutional breaches”.
He said “such petulant antics” cannot save the governor from facing justice over his many infractions on the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
According to Olatunbosun, the Ekiti chapter of APC was not surprised by Fayose’s antics in his relentless media attacks on President Buhari, noting, however, that “false accusations and sophistry would not distract the Federal Government from pursuing its anti-graft agenda and free the country of official impunity”.
Olatunbosun said: “Impunity has wreaked havoc in the polity resulting in some cases to crimes against humanity. Fayose as a promoter of impunity is only trying to employ his basket-mouth antics to blackmail the President in his witch-hunting accusation in the media to preempt dispensation of justice in his financial crimes, acts of impunity and crimes against humanity”.
“It is laughable and an insult on the intelligence of Nigerians for Fayose to accuse President Buhari of persecuting the opposition simply because he wants to recover funds stolen from the nation’s treasury and punish looters.
“Fayose has persecuted members of the opposition in Ekiti State to no end. He runs them out of town as promised by declaring them wanted over trumped-up murder charges”, he added.
