The governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has described as disheartening, the support Professor Ango Abdullahi gave to the quit notice northern youth groups gave to Ndigbo, and said it is a sign of danger lurking in the country.
Fayose blamed the present development on the lackadaisical attitude of President Muhammadu Buhari to national issues and cautioned that if nothing is done to address the present worrying development the country may end up in a state of anarchy.
He said, “We are more divided than ever. The elements are emboldened because they believe their person is in office and nothing would happen.
“This is not surprising to some of us as the herdsmen set the tone and became notorious under the watch of Buhari.
“If this continued , it would further heat up the already tensed situation and promote further distrust among ethnic groups in the country.”
Fayose therefore called on the Federal Government to accept responsibility for the situation and take decisive action to stop it.
“Buhari ’s government has not taken responsibility; no responsible government would encourage this. It is an empty threat that if not checked would snowball . This is why people are calling for restructure.
“The government should take responsibility and take decisive actions on those promoting war situation in our country.
“It is disheartening that a personality like Ango Abdullahi would support that; that ’s danger lurking in the country.
“He should be invited for questioning by security agencies . Leaders should rise up and condemn this instead of giving tacit support to the ultimatum.
“So many lives have been lost due to the lackadaisical attitude of the Federal Government . All these I saw when I warned that Buhari would leave our country worse than he met it in 2015.”
