Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has advised President
Mohammadu Buhari to respect the democratic principles of separation of
powers by allowing the judiciary to do its job, obey court orders and
focus on proper prosecution of people accused of corruption rather
than castigating the judiciary and making the arm of government to
appear as the stumbling block in his fight against corruption.

The governor also urged the President to tell Nigerians the truth
about the Boko Haram insurgency, saying; “They keep telling us that
they have defeated Boko Haram technically while Nigerians are still
being killed daily by Boko Haram, with over 100 people killed in
Dalori, less than 12km to Maiduguri, Borno State capital. Isn’t it now
necessary for the President to fulfill his promise of leading from the
front and getting his Information Minister, Lai Mohammed to go and
hold a press briefing in Sambasa forest unguarded by military men so
as to show to Nigerians that indeed, they have defeated Boko Haram

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and
New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said the President should
have simply told the whole world that he hated the Nigeria Judiciary
because he lost the petitions that he filed against his electoral
defeats in 2003, 2007 and 2011 instead of hiding under the fight
against corruption to ventilate his anger.
