Governor, Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has denied Allegation by APC that his one of the sponsors of IPOB, In a new statement he claimed that he is interested in the unity of Nigeria.

He said,

“Nobody wants Nigeria to divide. I’m not for division. Nobody is promoting disunity or anarchy. But, the Federal Government should engage in more of dialogue [with agitating groups]; it should use the carrot and stick approach rather than guns.

“In every family, there are both the good and bad people. Agitation is normal in every society, but the way to go about it is to tread cautiously. Buhari should know that this is not 1984 [when the President ruled as a military dictator].”

“Using brute or suppressive force is not democratic. Running a democracy should not be by propaganda. Democracy is not autocracy. The issue is beyond IPOB.

“What this government needs to do is to restructure and this matter should not be handled by the APC. It should not be a party affair.

“Having said that, I am not promoting IPOB, but Buhari should lead Nigeria with equity and justice. Let brute force become the last option in matters of agitation. Battles can be won without the use of force.”
