First and foremost, let me use this opportunity to congratulate you on your new birthday of 56 and wish you many happy returns of the day.

However, just like millions of Nigerians, I was amused by your usual attempt to assault the intelligence of discerning Nigerians through your statement titled "I stand with Nigeria" but who can see clearly through your deceits and distractions from the ghosts of Ekitigate and Dasukigate, which one believes are responsible for your continuous desecration of the exalted office of a governor conducts and will perpetually haunt you until they are exorcised through genuine repentance, confessions of your roles and conviction by a court of law for assaulting democracy and violating the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Reading through your statement, one can see clearly that you are truly living up to your description as a stuntsman, according to a globally recognized academician and proud son of Ekiti state following your questionable victory at the Ekiti state governorship election in 2014.

You have at every opportunity, even at the expense of pressing state matters, tried to distract from your ignoble roles which facilitated your assumption into office through the unbridled violation of the constitution and assault on the democratic rights of Nigerians, some of whom were picked up by the security agencies and locked up on the eve of the election, only to be released without being charged to court after the conclusion of the election, for committing the offence of belonging to the opposition party with you as the arrow head of the evil plot and as the de facto Commander in Chief of the armed forces, which you claimed was entrusted on you by former President Jonathan, as heard in the Ekitigate tape released by former captain Sagir Koli of the Nigerian army.

Though your roles in the Ekitigate and Dasukigate scandals have become public knowledge through the admittance and confessions of some of your accomplices like Musiliu Obanikoro, Iyiola Omisore and Tope Aluko, you have as in your character insistently denied, but be rest assured that your day of reckoning is very near.

Mr. Fayose, if one may ask, was the desecration of the temple of justice, when you led thugs and miscreants to invade and assault a judge in Ekiti state, just to prevent it from hearing a case questioning your eligibility to contest the office of governor, part of your creed of standing with Nigeria? Who can also forget your latest gangster act of obstructing law enforcement from discharging their constitutional responsibility in Ekiti by leading thugs to forcefully assault the constitution, is this also a manifestation of your standing with Nigeria?

Governor Fayose, if these unbecoming acts of yours, is what is meant to stand with Nigeria, then, you must be standing alone or with only those who believe in your embarrassing and violation of the constitution conducts, because the Nigerian people of which am one out of millions, are proud, civilized, peaceful, responsible and law abiding people who are desirous of the country taking its rightful place in the comity of nations through responsible conducts by both the government and the citizenry.

Mr. Fayose, try as you may to distract from the criminal charges which am hopeful, will brought against you at the expiration of your tenure as governor of Ekiti state for your roles in Ekitigate and Dasukigate, one thing am very sure of is that, you cannot escape justice, if not of man, but of God who in his infinite wisdom will give to every man, his reward.

Once again, am wishing you happy birthday and part of my birthday prayer for you is that, may you be visited by the spirit of the Lord, to confess your ignoble roles in undermining democracy and violation of the constitution in order to exorcise the ghosts which are haunting you and save the government and people of Ekiti state in particular and Nigerians in general from the embarrassing conduct of a custodian of the peoples mandate in you, which is our collective shame.
