Mr. Governor should stop seeking unnecessary negative media attention and focus on governance.
The former speaker of the Ekiti House of Assembly, Femi Bamisile, in a statement, said fayose has a penchant for mischief.
Bamisile said “For Governor Fayose to label President Buhari as a sectional president is a reflection of a state of mind possessed by a pathological penchant for mischief.”
He also called on Nigerians to ignore Fayose’s constant criticisms of President Buhari.
An excerpt of a statement issued by Bamisile’s media aide, which was obtained from Daily Post, reads, “Mr. Governor should stop seeking unnecessary negative media attention and focus on governance. Here is a governor that barely one year into his misrule, already has so much problems on his hands.
“Ekiti has regressed into the days of social and economic enslavement. I wonder how a governor who has suddenly turned himself to public enemy number one among his people can claim any moral justification to constitute himself a judge on President Buhari’s policies.
“It is unfortunate that the governor who is preaching principle of equity and fairness failed to realise that of the 12 national electoral body chairmen that have been appointed between 1960 and 2015, only Prof. Attahiru Jega, who took over in 2010, has come from the Northern extraction.
“It, therefore, amounts to either a characteristic deliberate miscarriage of fact or unimaginable ignorance of history on the part of Governor Fayose to claim that the South-South, South-East and South-West, who have had at least two shots each at the position are being marginalized.”
This is coming on the heels of Fayose’s comment on the appointment of Prof. Mahmud Yakubu as Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman, by President Buhari.
