Igbos Will Be Guinea Pigs In Nigeria – Fayose

Published

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has a message for Igbo people:  “The South-East governors meeting with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu had provided a veritable platform, which all Igbo must key into otherwise they would remain guinea pigs in Nigeria.”

“I appeal to the Federal Government to allow political solutions to agitations by Nigerians as against the use of brute force. I remained committed to the call for full and total restructuring of Nigeria through dialogue and negotiation because it is too late for Nigeria to disintegrate.”

“I am particularly glad that South-East governors have come to the realisation that they cannot ignore their own in times like this as agitation is normal and must not be ignored, although the approach should be handled with caution.”

“The father figure of this country is President Buhari and if his language does not represent unity, there will be agitations like we are witnessing now. A father figure rallies even the bad boys in his house. The utterances and actions of Buhari when he became President were against the unity of this country.”

“How can a president say that he will only attend to the needs of those who gave him 97 per cent vote and 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 and there must be justice and equity.”

“I commend the northern leaders for standing up to ensure that the Arewa youths’ quit notice against the Igbo in the North was resolved and withdrawn without necessarily arresting and detaining anyone. Arresting or re-arresting Kanu may be counter-productive as it may be perceived as vilification of the entire South-East geopolitical zone, not necessarily Kanu as a person.”
