A group, the Democratic Youths Congress for Buhari 2019 (DYCB) have blasted the Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose over his recent comments.
The group condemned Fayose over his recent public utterances on the attacks by suspected herdsmen in Benue state.
According to the group, the governor’s public utterances about herdsmen were capable of tearing the country apart.
DYCB also said that no blackmail will stop President Buhari’s soaring image.
The group’s national chairman, Honourable Kassim Mohammad Kassim, said this when he spoke with journalists in Owerri, Imo state yesterday.
Kassim, who is also a member of the Nasarawa state House of Assembly representing Akwanga South constituency, reportedly declared that the comments credited to Fayose on the killings by suspected herdsmen as well as other national security issues were inciting and unbecoming of a leader.
He said: “It comes to us as a great dismay that Fayose as a leader of that repute has never in his life created a solution, which was why he was elected in the first place but rather has been inciting one section of the country against the other.
“It is obvious that Fayose’s statements and antics are politically motivated to blackmail President Buhari’s administration ahead of the 2019 election, but no amount of campaign of calumny can stop Buhari’s re-election because majority of discerning Nigerians are impressed with his performance.
“In fact, we are members of the Democratic Youths Congress for Buhari 2019, condemn the attack in Benue state as unwarranted and we call on the communities and the herdsmen to resolve their issues in a manner that peace will return and we also want to draw the attention of the federal government and entire Nigerians to the day-to-day activities of Governor Fayose and also to monitor some of his activities because we are beginning to see that he is part and parcel of those sponsoring crisis in this country as a result of some of his malicious statements.
“It is a disgrace to this country that as a governor of a state, he lacks the attitude, the culture and the character of a leader because most of his actions have been inciting and instigating crisis in the country.”
