Fayose says Release of Chibok Girls is only A Tactic to Divert Nigerians from Hunger

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has described the celebration of the Federal Government over the release of 21 Chibok girls by the Boko Haram, as not only diversionary, but a tactic employed to divert the attention of Nigerians from the hunger and outrage generated by crackdown on judges.

Fayose said “Nigerians have had enough of anti-corruption war” saying it is high time President Muhammadu Buhari addressed massive hunger that is killing many people in the country.

Fayose said this on Thursday at the commissioning of a three-block classrooms built at the Erelu Adebayo Children’s Home in Iyin Ekiti, Irepodun/Ifelodun Local Government Area as part of activities marking his second year in office. His words:

“What they came out today to tell Nigerians that 21 abducted Chibok girls have been released by the Boko Haram group is diversionary.

"Nigerians have never had it so bad. People are very hungry. What they did today is just to divert attention from what they did last week by clamping judges and justices into detention. While no one is saying corruption should be condoned, but the due process must be followed.

“The Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government that they labelled as inept, did better than this. The exchange rate of the naira to the dollar is unacceptable. The situation has led to hyper-inflation where what people used to buy for N30,000 can not be bought with N100,000‎. Look at the elections that have been conducted since they came to office, all the gains recorded by the previous government as far as democracy is concerned are being eroded.”

He added: “Food security is number one, they should stop fooling us; our economy must be urgently addressed because Nigerians voted for the government in power so they can enjoy better lives.

“There is hunger everywhere, many husbands had turned to wives in their families. Nigeria is hard to live in and we pray that God will change this change for us.

“It is not good for a government to be catching thieves and kidnappers everyday while its citizens are hungry. Everybody is now a thief in Nigeria, we need prayer in Nigeria and divine intervention.

“Our people are suffering under the APC government, I am not afraid of what man can do to me. They have taken our rights away from us but I am not afraid because if you want to catch me you must slaughter God.

“We have had enough of diversionary tactics, they are using the report of Chibok girls’ release to cover up the undue arrest of our judges. Trampling on our rights is trampling on the Constitution.

“We want food on our table because propaganda does not amount to food on the table of our citizens. Let them continue to conspire, I will continue to rule them.

“Those waiting for me, tell them that they will continue to wait in vain. I am going somewhere, God is taking me to somewhere in Nigeria whether my adversaries like it or not," Fayose stressed.
