*Alleges witch-hunt of opposition, demands investigation
Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has hailed the international community, especially the United States of America and the United Kingdom over reports on President Muhammadu Buhari.
He hailed them for joining lovers of democracy in Nigeria to speak out against the All Progressives Congress (APC) government of President Buhari.
He accused Buhari of using state security apparatus to oppress opposition.
He called on the British Government to investigate the allegation of the use of British foreign aid given to Nigeria to help combat Boko Haram terrorists.
Fayose claimed it was used to fund a witch-hunt against opposition politicians.
He said the investigation is with a view to preventing continuous use of fund belonging to the country wrongly.
Governor Fayose spoke through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka.
He said the international community must focus attention on Nigeria under President Buhari.
According to Fayose, “rights of Nigerians are now being trampled upon with impunity.”
In its report, the United States Department of States, accused the Nigerian police, DSS and the military of gross abuse of power.
It includes citizens brutality, arbitrary detention, bribery, among other scandals
Also, the United Kingdom based Telegraph newspaper released a publication this week on Nigeria.
It said that hundreds of millions of pounds of British foreign aid given to Nigeria to help combat Boko Haram terrorists was instead being used to fund a witch-hunt against opposition politicians.
Governor Fayose is presently in Guangzhou, China to attend the 119th China Import and Export Fair otherwise known as the Canton Fair between April 14 and 19.
He said the United Kingdom Telegraph newspaper was right in its report.
The report says that the Buhari’s government was using British aid money to target his political opponents.
That, particularly, through anti-corruption agencies and the Department of State Services (DSS).
He said only the international community could help prevail on President Buhari to respect the rule of law and stop ruling Nigeria like a military dictator.
The governor described the United States Department of States report as another vindication of his position on the Buhari-led government.
He alleged that Buhari’s government is laced with abuse of the rights of Nigerians.
He said: “Everything I predicted about Buhari is coming to pass and the international community must assist the country to sustain democracy.”
