‘Buhari, A Rampaging Beast Ready To Consume Democracy In Nigeria’, Says Fayose

Although we are headquartered in Washington D.C. USA, our reporters and editors are working around the globe to cover what you care about. We invite you to donate to our fundraiser to help us keep our quality news free and available for all.

Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, referred to President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday as “a rampaging beast that is ready to consume democracy and rule of law in Nigeria” and warned that it would be a tragic mistake for noble men to remain silent as the country falls apart.

Mr. Fayose was reacting to the chaotic election in Rivers State earlier in the day and warned that democracy is now in danger under Buhari, adding that anarchy looms.

He said “the open display of contempt for free, fair and transparent election by the All Progressives Congress (APC) government of President Muhammadu Buhari as being witnessed in Rivers State presently is capable of setting Nigeria on the path of anarchy.”

“Curiously, those who went on the rooftops to condemn the involvement of soldiers in the Ekiti governorship election despite that the international observers hailed their participation and even went to court to stop soldiers from taking part in elections are silent now.

“They have failed to realise that if all noble men should keep silent and get cowed by this rampaging beast that is ready to consume democracy and rule of law in Nigeria, ordinary Nigerians will sooner than later end up in the belly of the beast,” he added.

The governor, who described as worrisome reports of discovery of fake Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Result Sheets in some of the Local Government Areas, security agencies supported siege harassment, intimidation and even killings of Peoples Democratic Party members, said “Rivers State is 100 percent PDP, and any attempt to subvert the will of the people will be counter-productive.”

In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public
Communications and New Media, Mr. Lere Olayinka, the governor said, “Obviously, INEC under President Buhari has destroyed that legacy of free, fair and transparent elections bequeathed on Nigeria by the PDP government former President Goodluck Jonathan.”

The governor added: “It is strange that INEC produced Results Sheets with PDP omitted, and I wonder what is going to happen in 2019 if INEC and security agents are acting in this clear compromised manner in Rivers State.

“From reports that I have heard, Rivers State is under siege. I have seen pictures of people killed and I have seen pictures of INEC Result Sheets with PDP omitted. Most importantly, I have read reports of top functionaries of PDP and Rivers State government either abducted by unknown gunmen or arrested by the security agents.

“What all these portend for our democracy is danger! It is a sign of what APC desperation to take over power in the entire 36 States of Nigeria will cause in Edo and Ondo States this year and in Ekiti State in 2018 as well as the entire country in 2019″.
