Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has taken another dig at President Muhammadu Buhari following the recent alleged invasion of the Ekiti State House Assembly by the Department of State Service (DSS).
The Governor who accused Buhari of masterminding the alleged invasion stated that he could bar the DSS from Ekiti State.
“The government of Ekiti State may have to reconsider the usefulness of men of the DSS in the Government House and other institutions of the state government”, Fayose said in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka.
Fayose further affirmed that he would not succumb to intimidation adding that, “If Buhari likes, let him relocate all DSS men in Nigeria with the entire ammunition in their armoury to Ekiti, the will of Ekiti people can never be broken. They will only try, and like they have always done, they will fail because dictatorship has never triumphed over the people. Even Buhari’s dictatorship between 1984 and 1985 ended one day and Nigerians will also outlive his current dictatorship.”
He lamented that, “It is obvious that democracy in Nigeria is becoming unsafe at the hands of Buhari and his APC and those keeping silent now because of politics may also end up in the belly of this roaring lion that is threatening to consume our democracy.
“Therefore, Nigerians and the international community should take special notice of the use of the DSS and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to muscle opposition.
“As for me, I wish to say once again that I am not among those Nigerians that are afraid of harassment by any agency of the Federal Government.”
