Hausa Sallah Message: Fayose accuses Buhari led govt. of dividing Nigeria
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has accused the Buhari led administration of ”dividing Nigeria” and thus responsible for various agitations across the country.
He said ”it is the legitimate right of the people to agitate if they feel they are wrongly treated”.
He alleged that the Igbo have been made to suffer forever because of their role in the civil war.
While appealing to the federal government to be fair and just to all ethnic identities in the country, Fayose also advised the federal government to dialogue with Nnamdi Kanu,the IPOB leader, instead of using force in its bid to address the ongoing agitations for Biafra republic.
He asked the acting president Yemi Osinbajo to put in more effort to be able to address some daunting challenges confronting the nation.
“The Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is doing his best but that is not enough. We must remember that those who make positive change impossible make violent change inevitable. A situation where a section will be suffering forever because of their role in the civil war is not fair,” he said.
“As much as secession is not an option, the handlers of our democracy must be equitable, fair and just to everyone. The Igbo have continued to suffer because of the perceived role of Emeka Ojukwu. If we say past governments didn’t do well what has the present government done differently?
“I agree that secession is not desirable but there must be justice and equity. When people are being killed or vilified, you must expect a reaction. No region should begin to use power to oppress another. If Nigeria is truly one, it will not get to a stage that one region will openly call on another to leave its land” he said.
