The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has slammed the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Muhammed for claiming that the Boko Haram sect has be defeated.
Fayose said that if the claim was true, Lai Muhammed should relocate to Sambisa without security operatives attached to him. Ayo Fayose commented the Nigerians would only believe the claim if the minster relocate his residence to one of the troubled states.
"Nigerians will only take the minister serious if he relocates to either Sambisa in Borno State or Yobe State and stay there till the end of March, next year without heavy military security.”
He said; “To show their level of confusion, two days after the Minister of Information declared that Boko Haram had been defeated, President Buhari said the government would persuade Boko Haram to abandon their fight. One then wonders how the same Boko Haram insurgents Lai Mohammed said were already defeated will have to be persuaded to abandon their fight.
“Interestingly, the same Boko Haram that Lai Mohammed said had been defeated reported attacked Kimba village in Gur ward of Biu Local Government Area of Borno State yesterday night. “Therefore, the Information Minister must show Nigerians how peaceful Borno and Yobe States have become after the defeat of Boko Haram by relocating to either Sambisa, Maiduguri or Yobe.”
The Ekiti State Governor also ridiculed the proposed reduction of fuel price, claiming that is was a deceitful move by the Buhari led administration.
