Abuja - The Senator representing Ogun east senatorial district in the National Assembly, Buruji Kashamu, has berated Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state for calling President Muhammadu Buhari a dictator, Tribune reports.
Kashamu, reacting to Fayose’s condemnation of the alleged sealing off of the residence of the former Governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Kwakwanso, by the police, said the governor lacks the temperament and credentials to counsel anyone on democracy and the rule of law.
Kashamu, in a statement issued on Friday, August 26, in Lagos, said Fayose’s sudden posture as a latter-day human rights activist and advocate for the rule of law distorts the authenticity of civil rights advocacy.
He said the governor’s political trail is muddied by his inglorious acts of lawlessness, impunity and flagrant disregard for the rule of law.
The senator said Fayose’s crass lawlessness, impunity and flagrant disregard for democracy and the rule of Law are at the roots of the leadership crisis rocking the PDP.
Fayose had lashed out at President Muhammadu Buhari following his return to Nigeria in June according to News24.
He lambasted Buhari over his alleged harassment of officials from the People's Democratic Party (PDP) through persecution issued by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
