Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has alleged that a cabal of the All Progressives Congress, APC, is out to destroy Nigeria’s democracy.
In a statement issued by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, the governor noted that should the “APC cabal” succeed in destroying the nation’s democracy “no one will be spared.”
Fayose made the claim while reacting to the recent removal of the Chief Security Officer, CSO, to the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike by the Federal Government few days to the rerun elections in Rivers.
According to Fayose, “With this ignoble action by the federal government, it is now clear that the government is out to subvert the will of the people of Rivers State by whatever means in favour of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
“How can anyone tamper with security aides of a State Governor without his consent? How can the Chief Security Officer of a state governor be changed without the consent of the governor? Isn’t it now clear that they actually want to kill Governor Wike before the Saturday election?”
Warning that Nigeria can never be turned into a one party system, the governor said, “Nigeria can never be turned to a one party State and if care is not taken, by the time this house of democracy is destroyed by the APC cabal, no one will be spared.”
Fayose, who alerted the international community on the imminent danger being posed by the action of the APC-led Federal Government, said; “Nigeria deserves total attention from the international community at this time. The international community should not look the other way while those holding power in Abuja plunge the country into crisis of international magnitude.”
