Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has hailed the international

community, especially the United States of America and the United

Kingdom for joining lovers of democracy in Nigeria to speak out

against the All Progressives Congress (APC) government of President

Mohammadu Buhari’s use of State security apparatus to oppress

opposition.
He called on the British Government to investigate the allegation of

the use of British foreign aid given to Nigeria to help combat Boko

Haram terrorists to fund a witch-hunt against opposition politicians

with a view to preventing continuous use of fund belonging to the

country wrongly.
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and

New Media, Governor Fayose said the international community must focus

attention on Nigeria under President Buhari, saying; “rights of

Nigerians are now being trampled upon with impunity.”

In its report, the United States Department of States, accused the

Nigerian police, DSS and the military of gross abuse of power which

include citizens brutality, arbitrary detention,bribery among other

scandals
Also, the United Kingdom based Telegraph newspaper published this week

that hundreds of millions of pounds of British foreign aid given to

Nigeria to help combat Boko Haram terrorists was instead being used to

fund a witch-hunt against opposition politicians.
Governor Fayose, who is presently in Guangzhou, China to attend the

119th China Import and Export Fair otherwise known as the Canton Fair

between April 14 and 19, said the United Kingdom Telegraph newspaper

was right in its report that the Buhari's government was using British

aid money to target his political opponents, particularly through anti

corruption agencies ans the Department of State Services (DSS).

He said only the international community could help prevail on

President Buhari to respect the rule of law and stop ruling Nigeria

like a military dictator.
The governor described the United States Department of States report

as another vindication of his position on the Buhari-led government’s

abuse of the rights of Nigerians, saying; “everything I predicted

about Buhari is coming to pass and the international community must

assist the country to sustain democracy.”
