The governor of Ekiti State, Mr Peter Ayodele Fayose has applauded his South-Eastern counterparts and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB], Mr Nnamdi Kanu over their recent meeting in a bid to resolve the agitation for a sovereign state of Biafra rocking the zone.
Governor Fayose made the commendations in a series of tweets on his Twitter handle @GovAyoFayose on Thursday.
Fayose, however, did not hesitate to knock President Muhammadu Buari, whose utterances and actions, he said, ‘were against the unity of this country’.
He argued that “For Nigeria to move forward and in unity, there must be no sectionalism, there must be no oppression & there must be justice and equity,” qualities which are evidently lacking in the Buhari administration.
The latest being the appointment of 15 new managers for the NNPC which has two from South South zone, three from South West zone, ten from the three Northern zones, and ZERO from the South East zone.
In the tweets, Fayose wrote:
“I commend Govs of the South-East states for their yesterday’s meeting with leader of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
“The meeting has provided platform, which all Igbos must key into otherwise they will remain guinea pig as long as this country exists as agitations are normal and must not be ignored, although the approach should be handled with caution.”
“I’m particularly glad that S/E govs have come to the realisation that they cannot ignore their own.”
“A father figure rallies even the bad boys in his house. Utterances and actions of the President were against d unity of this country.”
“The father figure of this country is Buhari. If his language does not represents unity, there will be agitations like we have now.”
“How can a president say that he will only attend to the needs of those who gave him 97% vote & neglect others who didn’t vote for him?”
“For Nigeria to move forward and in unity; there must be no sectionalism, there must be no oppression & there must be justice and equity.”
“I appeal to the FG to allow political solutions to agitations by Nigerians as against the use of brute force, which, regrettably, has become the hallmark of this administration.”
“Even though it is too late for Nigeria to disintegrate, we do not need APC kind of restructuring.”
“Once again, I salute my brother govs from the SE for their historic meeting of yesterday and I urge them not to relent in their efforts to bring lasting peace and harmony to their region.”
“While I also commend the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu for his display of humility and commitment to peace by attending the meeting, I remain committed to the call for full and total restructuring of Nigeria through dialogue and negotiation.”
“I enjoin him to cooperate with leaders of the region going forward.”
The said meeting, nonetheless, was not as successful as envisaged as Nnamdi Kanu remained adamant in his quest for “No Election in Anambra” come November 18, 2017.
He reiterated his stance during the meeting and equally reject pleas to drop his agitation for Biafra or at least change his approach.
