Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has described the claim by the

All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation that the

Federal Government was planning to use a fake Ibrahim Shekau to

implicate the party's presidential candidate, Major General Mohammadu

Buhari (rtd) as a further confirmation that the APC knows those behind

the Boko Haram insurgency.
He challenged the APC to produce the original Shekau, since the party

knows that the Federal Government was presenting a fake one, saying;

“It is obvious that APC does not want the insurgency to end.”

In a statement issued on Tuesday, by his Special Assistant on Public

Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor lamented the

open display of hatred against Nigeria and its people by the APC,

saying; “Up till today, the APC has not made any statement, commending

our gallant soldiers that are laying down their lives to save

Nigerians from the Boko Haram insurgents.
“Instead of commending the soldiers and encouraging them, what the APC

people are doing is to blackmail the military and one wonders why a

party will want to take over power by supporting killing of innocent

Nigerians.”
Speaking further, the governor said; “With the onslaught on the Boko

Haram by our gallant soldiers, the APC appears to have lost the game

of using the insurgency to campaign against President Goodluck

Jonathan.
“Instead of them to face this reality, they have come up with this

criminal assertion that a fake leader of Boko Haram, Ibrahim Shekau,

was being presented before Nigerians by the government, in order to

claim winning the war on terrorism.
“They are also claiming the fake Shekau might become a tool to

blackmail members of the opposition, by coaching the phantom terror

chief to say he was working for its presidential candidate,

Major-General Muhammadu Buhari, in order to link him to terrorism.

“With this statement coming from the APC, it is clear that the party

knows what we don't know about Boko Haram.
“It also indicates that the APC people do not want the Boko Haram

insurgency to end so that they can continue to make political gains

from it.
“Therefore, APC should simply produce the original Shekau that they

know because you can only recognise fake when you know the original.”
