Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state, in his usual vocal manner has questioned the claim by the Buhari led government, that it has technically defeated Boko Haram.

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said “Isn’t it now necessary for the President to fulfill his promise of leading from the front and getting his Information Minister, Lai Mohammed to go and hold a press briefing in Sambisa forest unguarded by military men so as to show to Nigerians that indeed, they have defeated Boko Haram technically?”

This is coming on the heels of suicide bombings in Dalori village in Borno state.

The Ekiti state Governor also said “They keep telling us that they have defeated Boko Haram technically while Nigerians are still being killed daily by Boko Haram, with over 100 people killed in Dalori, less than 12km to Maiduguri, Borno State capital.”

Fayose has been in the eye of the storm lately, following startling revelations by the embattled former secretary of the Ekiti state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Temitope Aluko, who claimed that the Ekiti Governor used the Nigerian Army to rig the governorship elections in the state.
