Gov Fayose suffering from psychological stress - APC

The All Progress Congress (APC) Ekiti state chapter has alleged that governor Ayodele Fayose is suffering from psychological stress which prompted him to make seditious remarks threatening to bring down President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

The APC which was reacting to a threat issued by Governor Fayose over the weekend to bring down President Buhari’s administration if anything happened to him, following the release of military panel report on Ekiti governorship polls, implored Nigerians to ignore the governor’s perceived seditious remarks.

According to leadership, the party in a statement by its publicity secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, stateted that: We want to appeal to Nigerians around the world to see Fayose as a special breed with a special case of psychosis among Ekiti people and so he should be treated as a special man whose actions should not be equated to Ekiti standard of behaviour.

“Even with his special condition of mental torture that requires psychiatric management, we shall still urge the security agencies to watch the governor over his subversive activities within and outside the country and to act now to bring him under the law to account for his actions.”

The party alleged that Fayose was stockpiling arms in the government house with hundreds of criminals already trained in arms handling.

It said: ”We are telling the security agencies again with all sense of responsibility that Fayose is currently recruiting 10 thugs from each of the 16 local government to assemble at a training facility in Ifaki-Ekiti. Who he wants to attack with armed thugs, we don’t know, but we know he has already made Hilux vans available to them for initial operations.”

In response however, Governor Fayose has described the claims by the APC against him as baseless allegations from those he called unsound minds.

In a statement yesterday, January 26, by his chief press secretary, Idowu Adelusi, the governor denied allegations that he was arming 10 thugs in each local government of the state.

According to The Nation, he said: “There is no point wrestling with a pig. For people with sound minds, they would, no doubt, wonder why somebody with a decent background and sound mind would refer to the governor of his state as needing psychiatric attention or not being able to survive in a law abiding society?

The statement added that by criticizing Buhari’s administration, Governor Fayose is exercising his constitutional rights of freedom of speech like any other Nigerian and has not breached anybody’s rights by constructively commenting on national issues.

Meanwhil, Governor Fayose denied media reports that he is one of 15 politicians who own properties in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Fayose who was reacting to the report by Sahara Reporters published on Thursday, January 21, that alleged Fayose had a house in Dubai, challenged anyone with information of any property linked to him in Dubai to publish the details.
