Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress has reacted to the tweet by the outgoing Governor of Ekiti State, Chief Ayo Fayose who recently using his tweeter handle to boast of how he will import “Thugs from Rivers State” to Ekiti State for the election!
Though, we know Governor Wike as someone who doesn’t care about the well-being and security of our people in Rivers State but we will no longer tolerate or keep quiet and allow him to continue to jeopardize the life of any Rivers State man be him a Militant or a Thug as Fayose have described our people in his tweet.
I therefore plead with Gov Wike to bury the thought or plot of sending more sons and daughters of Rivers State to Ekiti to act as a thug or Militant as being envisaged and plotted as the 30,000 Police Personnel sent to Ekiti by the Police Force is not for a jamboree or sightseeing.
Sadly some of the militants earlier sent as advance team have been caught making it imperative for Governor Wike as a matter of urgency to act fast by withdrawing any Rivers State son still staying in Ekiti State acting as a thug or as a militant, Chief Eze pleads.
The APC Chieftain and erstwhile National Publicity Secretary (NPS) of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) further reiterated that any Rivers State blood spilled in EKITI State because of the 14th July 2018 will be very unfortunate as the blood of any son or daughter of Rivers State is very precious to be wasted in an election that Fayose and his Team have already given up as losers.
Chief Eze recalled with nostalgia how Ayo Fayose under the influence of Aso Rock powers in 2014, supervised by Dr Goodluck Jonathan and his security goons did not only stop Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi then Governor of Rivers State from entering Ekiti State to join Dr. Kayode Fayemi, then incumbent Governor of Ekiti State during the APC campaign, but ordered those stern looking, gun wielding soldiers to shoot Gov Amaechi should he move an inch into the state. It was a horrendous situation as Amaechi eventually escaped death by the whiskers.
In this regard, Chief Eze blasted Governor Ayo Fayose who apart from the above sad scenario once boasted that he is a rock that is capable of crushing both President Buhari and leaders of APC to stop turning himself as a horrendous comedian and concentrate on how to hand over the reins of the State to a better equipped Dr Kayode Fayemi who has a blueprint on how to emancipate and develop Ekiti State. “I wish to assure Fayose and his Team of jesters that nobody is interested in his death or comic acts and antecedents. He will live to account for all his atrocities and misappropriation of both Rivers State and Ekiti Funds”.
What is happening in Ekiti State should teach Nigeria politicians that there is a cosmic power that rules the affairs of men. No matter how long it takes, what you sow is what you reap. Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and others in league with him should learn and retrace their steps accordingly, Eze enthused.
Chief Eze further stated that the administration of Fayose was a disaster and by refusing to pay the salaries of Civil Servants and Pensioners for over six months causing severe hardship to the entire people of Ekiti State will mark the end of PDP in that State after the 14th July gubernatorial election.
Eze thanked all the PDP bigwigs and key government officials of the administration of Fayose who have dumped the sinking ship of PDP and join the salvation Team of APC and collectively we will restore the glory of Ekiti State to what it should be.
He finally applauded the Ekiti voters for resolving to vote out the administration that have plunged the State into a monumental disaster.
