– Governor Fayose accused the federal government of bias in treatment of Nigerians
– He advocated for all persons to be treated with equity
– The Ekiti governor said he was against the break-up of Nigeria
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti has said that he is not promoting the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) but called on President Muhammadu Buhari to govern with fairness.
The governor has been accused by the All Progressives Congress (APC) of sponsoring IPOB but the governor in a series of tweets on Sunday, September 24 said he that was not the case.
Fayose insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari need not initiate a war against the group before it can be defeated.
He advised that fairness and justice can help put an end to the Biafra agitation.
He tweeted, “I’m not for division of Nigeria. But FG should engage in more of dialogue with agitating groups; use carrot & stick approach instead of gunsguns”
“In every family,there are both the good & bad people. Agitation is normal in every society,but the way to go about it is to tread cautiously”
“Using brute force is not democratic. Running a democracy should not be by propaganda. Democracy is not autocracy.”
“What this government needs to do is to restructure and this matter should not be handled by the APC. It should not be a party affair.”
“Having said that, I am not promoting IPOB, but Buhari should lead Nigeria with equity and justice.”
“Let the use of brute force becomes the last option in matters of agitation. Battles can be won without the use of force.”
