Former PDP national chairman condemns attack on Buhari

20 January 2015, 17:11

Ilorin - A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abubakar Baraje has chided Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State over alleged inflammatory comments on the health status of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.

Baraje in a statement made available to newsmen on Monday in Ilorin said the governors comments were capable of igniting crisis in the country.

He called on the Inspector General of Police, INEC Chairman, SSS and other security agents to take appropriate action to stop such "inflammatory statements originating from Fayose.''

Baraje, a former national chairman of PDP, described the statement credited to the governor as "not only reckless, uncalled for, but a statement that can cause anarchy and crisis in the country.

He noted with dismay that the comments were made few days after President Goodluck Jonathan and the APC presidential candidate signed a non-violence peace agreement.

"There is a limit to the tolerance of well meaning Nigerians to inflammatory statements such as that of Governor Ayo Fayose.

"Such statement have the tendency to cause anarchy and acrimony," he said.

Baraje advised Nigerians to be patient, law abiding as the nation moves towards a general election.
