Immediate past governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose has criticised the decision of president Muhammadu Buhari to kick-off of his Southsouth campaign, in Akwa Ibom state.
President Buhari will on Friday, kick off his campaign at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo, a state governed by a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP member.
Fayose, in a tweet on Thursday accused the president of being able to make just ‘telephone calls’ to a state where Nigerians are killed daily, yet would be kicking off his campaign in Akwa Ibom, a peaceful state.
The former governor queried the president for not kicking off his campaign, in one of the volatile Northeastern states or even Zamfara.
Nigerians are being killed in Zamfara, President Buhari could only make “phone calls”. But he is going to Akwa Ibom, a state made peaceful by the PDP Govt of Mr Udom Emmanuel to flag off his campaign.
Why can’t he do the flag off in Zamfara, Yobe or Borno?
