Fayose Condemns Removal of Gov Wike’s CSO, Says; “FG Planning To Subvert The Will Of Rivers People”


Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has condemned the removal of
the Chief Security Officer (CSO) to the Rivers State Governor, Mr
Nyesom Wike less than five days to the State’s legislative re-run
election, saying; “With this ignoble action by the federal government,
it is now clear that the federal government is out to subvert the will
of the people of Rivers State by whatever means in favour of the All
Progressives Congress (APC).”

Governor Fayose, who alerted the international community on the
imminent danger being posed to Nigeria by the APC-led federal
government, said; “Nigeria deserve total attention from the
international community at this time. The international community
should not look the other way while those holding power in Abuja
plunge the country into crisis of international magnitude.”

Special Assistant to the governor on Public Communications and New
Media, Lere Olayinka, quoted the governor as saying that it was
getting clearer that Governor Wike was right when he claimed that
there was a plot to assassinate him before Saturday.

The governor said President Mohammadu Buhari should be reminded that
he sworn to protect all Nigerians, irrespective of the party they
belong to.

He asked; “How can anyone tamper with security aides of a State
Governor without his consent? How can the Chief Security Officer of a
state governor be changed without the consent of the governor? Isn’t
it now clear that they actually want to kill Governor Wike before the
Saturday election?”

Governor Fayose, who said all steps being taken by the federal
government were geared towards turning Nigeria to a one party State,
warned that “Nigeria can never be turned to a one party State and if
care is not taken, by the time this house of democracy is destroyed by
the APC cabal, no one will be spared.”

He said those trying to impose their will on the people by whatever
means must leant from history, especially what happened in Nigeria
between 1979 and 1983 and where it led Nigeria to.
