A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) group, Concerned Stakeholders, has urged Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose to mind the affairs of his state and leave President Muhammadu Buhari alone.
The group made the comment via a statement released by spokesperson, Professor Tayo Akinyemi on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, according to Daily Post.
The statement reads in part:
Fayose should adopt result-oriented negotiation skills and resolve his internal governance issues before considering what President Buhari has done right or wrong. Ekiti is only one of 36 states.
If all the 36 states have to monitor the President’s steps, there would be commotion in the country. The governor must concentrate on governance with best practices in his state.
President Buhari, according to our investigations, was pressurised by international organisations and well-meaning groups to adopt dialogue in handling the militancy in the Niger Delta, as it is done in the developed countries.
As a listening President, who is ready to try other democratic options, Buhari yielded to this piece of advice in line with international practice. Buhari’s decision, therefore, has nothing whatsoever to do with Fayose’s statement.
Fayose has no relevance in national issues and will be best advised to look for another way to achieve his political aspirations.
