The last few days in Ekiti state have been full of political tension over the forthcoming governorship election and I Go Dye feels Gov Fayose deserves being attacked.
The comedian made this known on his Instagram page on Thursday, July 12, 2018, after Gov Fayose of Ekiti state alleged that he was beaten and tear-gassed by police officers in the state.
"When pensioners protested this is what they got when we protest for fuel pump hike this is what we get when we protest against bad leadership this is what we get when we protest on power failure or increase of minimum wage this is what we get. This experience to you and it will serve as a lesson to others, that they should join Nigerians when they face hardship and speak against it, because of corruption and the ills of the political class.
"Please get up, this is just a small thing compared to the injustice and pains that corruption has caused in this country. Oga governor, you are still among those governors that shortchanged some of our youth's destiny, even the president is not exempted from any of such consequences. until all of us use our respective positions to promote what is right, every citizen of this country can face this kind of situation," he wrote.
He went on to appeal to the citizens of Ekiti state to be law abiding as they go out to vote this weekend in the governorship elections.
"However, I condemn this action because it violates the fundamental human right to liberty and I also use this medium to admonish the people of Ekiti State to remain peaceful as they choose who leads them on Saturday. what happens to the boys on the street, can happen to anyone. speak up, because our present status doesn't stop us from questioning our environment.
