The governor of Ekiti State Dr Peter Ayodele Fayose has again condemned the recent killings in Benue State, saying the citizens of this country who are to be protected are no longer secured and are daily killed cheaply. He made this statement while fielding questions from journalists in his Osuntokun government house lodge in Ado Ekiti.
Fayose called for international communities to look into the killings in Nigeria by the Boko Haram particularly in Benue and begin to look beyond Boko Haram, saying Nigerians are becoming helpless even in their own land.
The chairman of the PDP governor’s forum echoed that the visit of president Muhammadu Buhari to Taraba state is political and an after thought. He called on president Buhari to resign if he fails to find solution to the insecurity and killings that is the order of the day in present Nigeria.
“President Buhari and the APC led federal government has failed us and the citizens are daily hungry and angry with them and so he should step aside”, he said.
Dr Fayose advised the Federal government to engage the Boko Haram and desist from their cheap lip service and stand up to their responsibilities to secure the lives of Nigerians.
