Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has described the release of the 21 Chibok girls as a tactic to divert attention from the nation’s economic problems.

The governor spoke yesterday at the commissioning of three-block classrooms in Iyin Ekiti, Irepodun-Ifelodun Local Council area.

He said: “The trick was employed by the Federal Government to divert the attention of Nigerians from hunger and the outrage that the crackdown on judges has created.

“Nigerians have had enough of the anti-corruption war. it is time for President Muhammadu Buhari to address the massive hunger that is killing people in the country.”

The classrooms were built at the Erelu Adebayo’s Children’s Home, as part of the activities marking the governor’s second year in office.

Fayose announced a donation of N250,000 for the purchase of uniforms for inmates in the orphanage and another N250,000 for their food supplements.

He warned against the diversion of the money into private pockets.

The governor said he was aware of the opposition’s conspiracy, describing himself as “Peter the Rock who cannot be removed unjustly.”

He explained that despite the plot against him by his political opponents, he would move to a higher political office to add value to the lives of the masses.

Fayose said: “Food security is number one, they should stop fooling us. Our economy must be urgently addressed because Nigerians voted for the government so that they can enjoy better lives.

“There is hunger everywhere, many husbands have been turned to wives in their families. The country is now so hard to live in, that only God would change the situation for us.

“It is not enough for a government to be allegedly catching thieves and kidnappers everyday while its citizens are hungry. Today, everybody is a thief in the country and only a divine intervention would save the people.”

According to the governor, people are suffering under the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government. He said he was not afraid of what man could do to him, but God, adding that the Buhari-led government has taken away the people’s rights.

    Fayose, your comment is also diversionary, because you once shouted that this kidnap was a scam, an ‘arrangee’ kidnap to vote GEJ out of power. Now that the kids are being rescued, you are diverting your comment to the economy. Why not apologize for all your stupid political comments and beg for forgiveness from those who are hurt so much for loosing their loved ones for so long and still in sorrow. The Northerners have all become your enemies, yet your party is looking for Hausa/Fulani to be your next presidential candidate and you even anointed Ali modu to be chairman of the party before you were shamed by party elders. Shame on you Ayo Fayose, the most stupid governor Nigeria has ever had.

        I am Wole, a committed Nigerian and I stand for the truth always. Chibok girls kidnap is not a deceit, it is for real, lets be sympathetic to those going through the agony of missing children. For a governor to be so selfish and callous like Fayose, is so so disturbing and annoying. And may I know who you are and what you stand for?

          Why are you wasting your precious time in endless conversation with this EPs (enemies of progress). Nothing Buhari says or do will ever make meanings to this guys.
          As for Fayose better to ignore this radio without battery of a man that is suffering from verbal diarrhea.

            Well said

            Majority of them does not have blood running in their veins hence their insistence on calling INA SCAM . Nemesis will soon catch up with them. Their children will suffer same fate

      Which kids are being rescued?
      (1) Is it not funny to you that Boko Haram & Shekau – who have kidnapped and killed over 3000 people in the past 4 years – suddenly collected 300 girls from Chibok, loaded them in EkeneDili Chukwu or is it Trailers, in a State that was under State of Emergency at that particular period, and trucked all of them for 6hrs to the border area/sambisa AND THEY DID NOT MEET ANY POLICE, ARMY, SSS, VIGILANTE CHECKPOINTS???
      (2) Is it not also funny that whilst Boko had kidnapped other numerous thousands over the years and kiled them, they collected Chibok girls, kept them all together for the past TWO years, fed and took care of them, so that they could be released later at a certain date in future? If it is so – then WHY are the Chibok ones Special? Or are their lives worth 100 times more than that of uncountable others slaughtered over the years???

      Something is certainly not just right about the Chibok story.
      Abeg when you finally wake up – bell me o!

        Ninjak, I am happy that you did not disagree that kids were kidnapped, only that you were suspicious of the motives and the brains behind it. Anyway, leave that matter for another day and rejoice with the parents of the these children who have been in agony for several months. If you have been a parent, you will appreciate what it means to have a child going through such a nasty experience.
