Nnamdi Kanu: Buhari should stop mocking democracy --Governor Ayodele Fayose

Nnamdi Kanu: Buhari should stop mocking democracy --Governor Ayodele Fayose

Published By Family Writers

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has charged Nigerians to prevail on President Muhammadu Buhari to purge himself “of the blood and water of dictatorship flowing in his veins”.

He stressed that the Federal Government’s attempt to secretly try the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, by using mask-wearing prosecution witnesses is a mockery of democracy.

The Governor, in a release issued on Saturday by his spokesman, Lere Olayinka, said “it is shameful that the Federal Government could approach the court for witnesses in a criminal matter it is prosecuting to wear mask and be seen through screen.”

He added that even the prosecuting counsel, who filed the application, should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be used as tools to subvert democracy.

According to the statement, “They want Kanu tried secretly. They also want the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd) tried secretly. What are they afraid of?

“How can the Federal Government asked the court to allow ‘ojuju calabar’ (masquerade) as prosecution witnesses when we are not under military rule?

“How would such witnesses be cross-examined by defence lawyers and can their real identity be ascertained?

“Should anyone make allegations that he cannot be bold enough to defend in the law court? Why are the witnesses afraid to testify in an open court if truly they are witnesses of truth?

“Clearly, this is mockery of democracy and the rule of law and Nigerians should know that it is their duty to purge President Buhari of dictatorship,” Fayose stated.

While applauding the judiciary for rising in the defence of democracy by saying no to the anti-democratic plot of using masquerade as witnesses, he said; “As it is now, only the judiciary can save Nigeria from the full-blown dictatorship that this Buhari-led APC government has become.

“Interestingly, they are not even sparing the bench from their regime of blackmail and dictatorship, and it has become necessary for our men of the bench to continue to stand firm against enemies of democracy and rule of law.”

  1. For me THE PROBLEM WE HAVE IN NIGERIA IS THE YORUBAS. This is my personal opinion. THEY ARE LIKE LONDON OF NIGERIA, RESOURCES AND HUMAN CAPITAL PROVIDED BY THE IBOS. THAT IS WHY SO CALLED ON-NIGERIA IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THEM. BUT THEY HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT UK IS DEFERENT FROM NIGERIA. ONE DAY NIGERIA WILL DIVIDE AND THEY WILL FIND OUT THAT THEY HAVE HAD A LASY GENERATIONS. AT THAT POINT BIAFRANS WILL HAVE THE LAST LAUGH.

  2. @Charles Ridg - I concur 100% that the Yoruba are the main problem we have in Nigeria. Igbos and Hausas/Fulani can get along pretty well. The Yoruba are the traitors, instigators and complicit in every squabble between Igbo and Hausa/Fulani. However, I must give a thump up for Gov. Ayodele Fayoose. He's one Yoruba leader who has consistently spoken out against the fanatic and dictator that Tinubu and his conspirators foisted upon the country. I cannot wait to see Biafra liberated - and how Britain and the West will deal with Islamic Nigeria.

  3. Shut up!!!!! And how did you arrived at the conclusion with your illusion? Yorubas are traitors while Awusa-Fulanis are murderers.. Among the two.. None are good.. We can not live with them. They are all devils alternative.. And if you are one of the imbeciles Igbos that have building in the north.. You should prepare to forfeit it or lose your life.. That is only option left for you.
