Produce the real Shekau, Governor challenges APC

Fayose stated this in response to a statement made by the party that the Federal Government was planning to produce a fake Shekau to deceive Nigerians into thinking that the war against terror had been won.

The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose has challenged the All Progressives Congress (APC), to produce the real Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.

The Ekiti State governor also accused the opposition party of showing hatred towards Nigeria and its people.

Fayose made the comments via a statement released by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka.

It reads:

“It is obvious that APC does not want the insurgency to end.”

“Up till today, the APC has not made any statement, commending our gallant soldiers that are laying down their lives to save Nigerians from the Boko Haram insurgents.

‪”Instead of commending the soldiers and encouraging them, what the APC people are doing is to blackmail the military and one wonders why a party will want to take over power by supporting killing of innocent Nigerians.”

‪Speaking further, the governor said; “With the onslaught on the Boko Haram by our gallant soldiers, the APC appears to have lost the game of using the insurgency to campaign against President Goodluck Jonathan.

‪”Instead of them to face this reality, they have come up with this criminal assertion that a fake leader of Boko Haram, Ibrahim Shekau, was being presented before Nigerians by the government, in order to claim winning the war on terrorism.

‪”They are also claiming the fake Shekau might become a tool to blackmail members of the opposition, by coaching the phantom terror chief to say he was working for its presidential candidate, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari, in order to link him to terrorism.

“With this statement coming from the APC, it is clear that the party knows what we don’t know about Boko Haram.”

“It also indicates that the APC people do not want the Boko Haram insurgency to end so that they can continue to make political gains from it.”

“Therefore, APC should simply produce the original Shekau that they know because you can only recognise fake when you know the original.”

President Goodluck Jonathan assured Nigerians, during a recent interview, that Shekau would be arrested before the March 28 elections.
