Fayose urges Lai Mohammed to relocate to Sambisa Forest

28 December 2015, 06:23

Ado Ekiti - Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has challenged the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed to relocate to Sambisa Forest in Borno State or at best, Maiduguri, the state capital and move around there without heavy military security if indeed he was sure that Boko Haram had been defeated, reports Punch.

Fayose was reacting to Thursday’s comments by Mohammed that Nigeria has won the war against Boko Haram.

The governor described the claim by the Information Minister that Boko Haram insurgents had been defeated as strange.

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka,  Fayose noted that Nigerians will only take Mohammed serious if he relocates to either Sambisa or Maiduguri and stay there till the end of March 2016 without heavy military security.

The governor also called on Nigerians to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari for God to give him the necessary wisdom to find solution to the country’s economic and security problems.

Fayose said only God’s intervention can save Nigeria from the present economic and security problems as it is glaring that President Buhari does not have any answer to the problems.
