Ekiti - Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has accused the DSS of leaking the audio of the conversation between him and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State in which both men discussed Wike’s sharp maneuvers during the December 10, 2016 rerun of legislative elections in Rivers State, Punch reports.
In the telephone call, Fayose congratulated Wike on the Peoples Democratic Party victory in the rerun polls, praising the Rivers State governor for his courage in daring the soldiers on election duty to visit a collation centre during the polls.
Wike, in his response, dismissed the military, saying, the “Nigerian Army does not exist again now.”
The acting Director, Army Public Relations, Brig. Gen. Sani Usman, however, dismissed the mockery of the soldiers in the audio tape.
“Both know that the Nigerian Army exists,” he replied in a text message.
But the Ekiti State Governor, in his reaction to the leaked audio, advised President Muhammadu Buhari to resign because he had failed Nigerians who voted him into power.
