Fayose fires back at APC for calling him a threat to democracy

29 March 2016, 12:45

Ado Ekiti- Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has fired back at the All Progressives Congress (APC) for calling him a threat to the country’s democracy.

The governor said the party is the real threat to the security of Nigeria and its people.

The APC in Ekiti had in a statement on Sunday described Fayose as a threat to national security and asked the federal government to place him under serious security watch over his alleged comment to bring down President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.

But, Fayose in a statement released by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said no organisation is qualified as a threat to the security of Nigeria other than the APC that was compromising major government institutions, including Department of State Services (DSS) such that functionaries of the party were now the ones telling the security agency who to arrest and detained indefinitely in Ekiti State.

He said it is only in Nigeria that a party that ran Ekiti State aground in four years and was rejected in six straight elections by the people can still be talking.

Fayose said a party like the APC that its government kept silent when over 400 Agatus were killed by Fulani herdsmen in Benue State and women were raped, farmlands destroyed by the herdsmen in other parts of the country cannot be anything other than threat to national security.
