Nigerians no longer safe under Buhari – Fayose
Immediate past Ekiti Governor Ayodele Fayose has lamented the worsening security challenges facing the country under President Muhammadu Buhari.
Fayose said the security of lives and property of Nigerians, irrespective of tribe ethnic and religious leanings is no longer guaranteed under the current administration.
The former Governor, in a statement by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, said the country is under serious threats from terrorists whose activities have made every place hellish for Nigerians, including traditional rulers.
He called on Nigerians to be security conscious and restrict their movement to avoid falling prey to kidnappers, bandits and terrorists holding the country at jugular.
Fayose said the alleged ties of Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, to terror groups has further exposed the hypocrisy and complicity of the Federal Government in the war against terrorism.
He lampooned the presidency for allegedly defending the terrorists and their salafist philosophy, describing such it “appalling and shameful”.

Fayose stated: “It is saddening and worrisome that the spokesmen of the President were the ones going from one media house to another to defend someone who openly supported terrorists.
“In the last three days, over 300 Nigerians have been killed across the country with several others in captivity and this is still not enough for President, Muhammadu Buhari and his men to wear sackcloth and cover themselves with ashes. Rather, they are seen making merry as if nothing has happened.
“It is funny that today, if those running the affairs of the country are not telling us that armed bandits must be seen as innocent until proven guilty, they will be saying offence of forgery is more grievous than open declaration of support for terrorists.
“Because of their failure to take decisive actions against these terrorists that they appear to have sympathy for, Nigeria is no longer safe for anyone to live in.”
The ex-Governor said the unimaginable security and socio-economic challenges befalling the country has vindicated his earlier position that President Buhari and his team are clueless and incompetent.
He said waiting between now and 2023 to vote out the APC from power will remain a pain in the heart of Nigerians because they are living under the yoke of poverty, insecurity and other vulnerabilities caused by the APC’s government ineptitude.
