APC should produce Boko Haram's Shekau: Fayose
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
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
“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
“Therefore, APC should simply produce the original Shekau that they
know because you can only recognise fake when you know the original.”
