Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State [below] is a study in juvenile delinquency in governance and opposition!
He is loud mouthed, irritant, infantile, unreasonable and irrational in his argument and perspective to the extent that he tries to politicize, sectionalise and trivialize every policy drive of the Federal Government all in a desperate frenzy and bid to score cheap political points and project and promote himself as an opposition leader!
Governor Fayose does not talk like a serious political leader of this country who ought to reflect and ruminate on what he says taking into account the implication on the polity and its security well-being!
His recent outburst on the Financial Regulatory Council of Nigeria Governance Code which prescribes that stipulates 20 years for heads of religious groups and civil society groups in the country!
Pursuant to the Financial Regulatory Council of Nigeria , the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG),Pastor Enoch Adeboye last Saturday announced his stepping down and the appointment of Pastor Joseph Obayomi as the new leader of the Church in Nigeria .
Characteristically in his usual style of brusque politicking and playing to the gallery Governor Fayose has twisted the whole thing to score cheap political points!
He carelessly and groundlessly suggested that the Financial Regulatory Council of Nigeria Governance Code is aimed by the Federal Government to be used as an instrument to attack the Church and tamper with its administration.
Governor Fayose untruthfully told an audience during a Church service to mark the 53rd birthday anniversary of his wife, Mrs Feyisetan Fayose on Sunday in Ado Ekiti that the Federal Government wants to subdue the Church and that Christians are being slaughtered in South Kaduna!
This is unfair and lies from the pit of hell calculated to mislead and instigate Christians against the Federal Government.
In the first place, the Financial Regulatory Council of Nigeria Governance Code was enacted during the time of former President Goodluck Jonathan contrary to the impression created by Governor Fayose that it was a creation of President Muhammadu Buhari!
It is settled that under the present Constitution which the country operates, the power of law making is exclusively vested on the National Assembly; so it is a misleading and patently wrong for Governor Fayose to suggest that the Financial Regulatory Council of Nigeria Governance Code was enacted by President Muhammadu Buhari regime to undermine the Church !
Secondly, it is unfortunate and grossly irresponsible for Governor Fayose to create the impression that the crisis in Southern Kaduna is a religious matter or that Christians are deliberately targeted for elimination there!
We all know that ,despite the spirited efforts to change the narrative, that the crisis by some mischievous people the crisis in Southern Kaduna is Not a religious one in any ramifications!
This crisis has been recurring since 1987 !
I do not know what the likes of Governor Fayose aim to achieve by playing such dangerous Politics with such delicate matters!
