THE Chief Whip of the Edo State House of Assembly, Mr Kabiru Adjoto has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in Ekiti State, asserting that the recent actions of Governor Ayodele Fayose was a great threat to the nation’s democracy and corporate existence of the nation.
President Muhammadu Buhari during the Federal Executive Council Meeting held at the Council Chamber State House Abuja.
The lawmaker posited that the governor’s solidarity visit to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kalu and his statement encouraging the latter to continue to fight a secessionist war against the Federation has made the governor unfit to continue to occupy the position of the governor of Ekiti state”.
Stressing that Governor Fayose’s continuous stay in office will pose as a great security risk for the nation, Adjoto stated that “his action is already sending wrong signals to the younger ones that the struggle for secession is good, that Nigeria should be divided since the support is coming from a governor.
“He has crossed the red line. As a governor there are certain things you should not do. If you are paying solidarity visit to somebody who wants Nigeria to break up, he wants the Igbos to leave Nigeria and a governor of a state is supporting such an idea, such governor does not warrant to be in office.
“Millions of Nigerians died during the civil war and today it is still affecting the Igbos, so does not Fayose and his friend want Nigerians to die again. What Fayose has done is an impeachable offence and I urged members of the Ekiti state House of Assembly to commence impeachment moves against the governor. Going to pay solidary to someone who wants Nigeria to divide is treason and he should be removed.
