Read the press statement from Ekiti state governor below…
Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has hailed
the international community, especially the United
States of America and the United Kingdom for
joining lovers of democracy in Nigeria to speak out
against the All Progressives Congress (APC)
government of President Buhari’s use of State
security apparatus to oppress opposition.
He called on the British Government to investigate the
allegation of the use of British foreign aid given to Nigeria
to help combat Boko Haram terrorists to fund a witch-hunt
against opposition politicians with a view to preventing
continuous use of fund belonging to the country wrongly.
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public
Communications and New Media, Governor Fayose said the
international community must focus attention on Nigeria
under President Buhari, saying; “rights of Nigerians are now
being trampled upon with impunity.”
In its report, the United States Department of States,
accused the Nigerian police, DSS and the military of gross
abuse of power which include citizens brutality, arbitrary
detention,bribery among other scandals Also, the United
Kingdom based Telegraph newspaper published this week
that hundreds of millions of pounds of British foreign aid
given to Nigeria to help combat Boko Haram terrorists was
instead being used to fund a witch-hunt against opposition
Governor Fayose, who is presently in Guangzhou, China to
attend the 119th China Import and Export Fair otherwise
known as the Canton Fair between April 14 and 19, said the
United Kingdom Telegraph newspaper was right in its
report that the Buhari’s government was using British aid
money to target his political opponents, particularly through
anti corruption agencies ans the Department of State
Services (DSS).
He said only the international community could help prevail
on President Buhari to respect the rule of law and stop
ruling Nigeria like a military dictator. The governor
described the United States Department of States report as
another vindication of his position on the Buhari-led
government’s abuse of the rights of Nigerians, saying;
“everything I predicted about Buhari is coming to pass and
the international community must assist the country to
sustain democracy.”
