President Jonathan, Is Silent Again, This Time On Domestic Terrorism In Ekiti
According to national and world reports it took President Goodluck Jonathan fifteen days before he publicly reacted to the news of the kidnap of the Chibok Schoolgirls, now we see President Jonathan at it again; watching silently as the tension between the All Progressives Congress' lawmakers and Governor Ayodele Fayose of the Peoples Democratic Party, is hurriedly pushing the entire Ekiti State into full-blown chaos.
Fayose, reportedly known for his hostile politics, and who is currently facing possible impeachment, has supposedly urged drivers and motorcycle riders to come out en masse to defend his mandate, saying: “My mandate is your mandate and you must defend it.”
President Jonathan, armed thugs are everywhere, being used to block Ekiti roads, protesters are blocking the roads in order to prevent access to the State capital, students, workers and market men/women, and even the dead are being blocked from reaching their respective places.
Ekiti towns are being besieged by questionable characters and oppositional party members have been reportedly abducted by political thugs.
Governor Fayose, as part of his anti-impeachment war, has reportedly run out duly elected All Progressives Congress' lawmakers out of town, businesses are crippled, offices and banks face closure, and thugs are chasing lawmakers even with the presence of police.
Judges have been known to suffer various forms of abuses, government owned vehicles are being used to block roads; armed thugs are seen flooding the premises of the State Assembly, and on and on.
Mr. President, this is a form of apparent domestic terrorism, and for God's sake where is Marilyn Ogar, the spokesperson for Nigeria's secret police or the State Security Service on this matter?
Mr. President, help restore law and order in Ekiti now, as you are still the President of the whole country between now and May 29, 2015!
