Ekiti State chapter of Afenifere Renewal Group (ARG) and Progressive Youth League (PYL) have descended heavily on the governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, for appearing at an Abuja Federal High Court in solidarity with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, who is standing trial for felony.

While the ARG criticized Fayose for “bringing governance to a ridiculous level and assaulting the sensibilities of the Yoruba nation,” the PYL slammed the governor “for abandoning serious business of governance in his home state to run a comedy show in faraway Abuja in a matter that does not concern him.”

The two groups bared their minds in separate statements in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday.

The ARG in a statement by its Coordinator, Bunmi Akanbi Awotiku, said though the governor enjoyed constitutional immunity and fundamental human rights as enshrined in
the constitution, however, condemned alleged abuse of those rights by the governor.

Awotiku said: “Despite receipts of monthly statutory federal allocation, budget support funds, bailout funds running into billions of Naira, Ekiti workers are under the yoke of non-receipt of their monthly salaries and allowances.

“The pensioners are not faring better; this is a governor displaying executive rascality all over Ekiti State and beyond. He has brought governance to a ridiculous level. He can be excused for his own style of leadership and manner of delivery but there are well designed standards for the office which he occupies but which he brings to ridicule.

“His recent solidarity visit to Nnamdi Kanu who has insulted and hold the Yoruba nation with disrespect is an executive rascality taken too far. Not withstanding the political motive, his solidarity is an insult and affront to the true Omo Oduduwas at home and Diaspora.”

In its statement, the PYL Coordinator Adeoye Aribasoye said Fayose’s action showed that he is idle and does not understand the seriousness of the business of governance, adding that a lot of issues requiring attention had been abandoned for a “needless trip to Abuja at the expense of tax payers.”

Aribasoye said: “Fayose’s action of going to the court in Abuja to show support for Kanu has nothing to do with the welfare of the people of Ekiti. It appears the man is not ready to provide governance for the people of Ekiti and we are calling on him to resign honorably.

Fayose had said while featuring on an interview programme on African Independent Television (AIT); ‎People, Politics and Power in Abuja yesterday that he attended Kanu’s trial ‎in Abuja because of his belief in ensuring justice for all,
irrespective of where one hails from.

He promised to also attend the trials of former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (Rtd), and the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Ibrahim jEl-Zakzaky.
