‘I don’t support Biafra’ – Fayose declares


Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, has denied reports from critics that he was promoting the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Governor Fayose took to Twitter to clarify issue, adding that he is not calling for division of Nigeria.

But that the Federal Government should ‘engage in more of dialogue with agitating group instead of guns. The Ekiti state governor on his twitter handle @GovAyoFayose on Sunday also said that President Muhammadu Buhari ‘should know that this is not 1984 when the President ruled as a military dictator.

In a series of Tweets, the governor debunked the rumour:

“I’m not for division of Nigeria. But FG should engage in more of dialogue with agitating groups; use carrot & stick approach instead of guns.

“In every family,there are both the good & bad people. Agitation is normal in every society,but the way to go about it is to tread cautiously.

“Should know that this is not 1984 when the President ruled as a military dictator.

“Using brute force is not democratic. Running a democracy should not be by propaganda. Democracy is not autocracy.

“What this government needs to do is to restructure and this matter should not be handled by the APC. It should not be a party affair.

“Having said that, I am not promoting IPOB, but Buhari should lead Nigeria with equity and justice.

“Let the use of brute force becomes the last option in matters of agitation. Battles can be won without the use of force.”
