The Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola has urged President Goodluck Jonathan to caution his wife over some inciting comments attributed to her.

Fashola also challenged Jonathan to dissociate himself from other hate speeches being made by his aides to show that he was not in support of them.

The governor stated this on Tuesday, March 11, while receiving the Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, Chidi Odinkalu at the State House.

“When some people say if the president did not win an election, this will happen and the president kept quiet, what message is he sending to Nigerians?” Fashola asked.

“He is telling us that we are not safe if he doesn’t win. The president must speak up and reassure Nigerians that the country must be safe no matter the outcome of the election. That is his responsibility,” the governor added.

“It is not enough to sign a peace accord but to act it. If the president wants to campaign in any state 24 hours, he is allowed but there are things he must publicly dissociate himself from,” Fashola said.

“He must publicly dissociate himself from his wife’s inciting comments, he must. He must disown them and his leadership will be defined by whether he does it himself or ask his aides to go and say it. When all is said and done, this election will define his tenure for many reasons,” he added.

Mrs. Jonathan had recently described the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as brain-dead and also urged her supporters to stone members of the APC during a rally in Calabar, Cross River State.
