Ekiti State Governor, Peter Ayo Fayose, has revealed the determination of President Muhammadu Buhari to Islamise the country, saying such was the reason for his constant trips to the Arab world.
Making the allegation yesterday in Port Harcourt, at the inter-denominational thanksgiving service organised by the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, over his Supreme Court victory, Governor Fayose observed that Nigeria, a multi- religious country, could not be forced to belong to the Organization of Islamic Country, OIC.
He regretted that Nigeria erred in their choice of the All Progressives’ Congress, APC, at the centre, affirming that they only had one ‘chance’ and not the real change, because, it did not seek God’s will before voting Buhari to power. “The APC came by one chance, and it will go accordingly” vowed Governor Fayose.
The governor also re-iterated that the fall in global oil price was because President Buhari lacked the divine luck and direction, and vowed that the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, will bounce back to power very soon.
In his speech, the National Chairman of the PDP, Senator Ali- Modu Sherif, noted that the validation of Governor Wike’s election by the Supreme Court saved the country and Rivers State from serious blood letting, and further confirmed that the court still remained the last hope of the common man.
“The Supreme Court merely confirmed God’s decision about Wike’s victory, and we are happy with the judiciary for having enough courage to deliver justice to the people of Rivers State and Nigeria’.
The governor of Rivers State reiterated his support for the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to conduct free, fair and credible re-run election, but warned Rivers would ruthlessly be against armed robbers coming to rob them of their votes.
“Anybody coming here to rob us of our votes should first of all write his ‘will’, for he will not live to regret his mistake.”
Assuring that the PDP will win all the seats in the re -run election, he urged the candidates to intensify mobilisation, for total victory come March 19, using the opportunity to tell all Ogonis, to vote against Magnus Ngei Abe.
Governor Wike also announced that the state government will take responsibility of all the families of the people allegedly killed by soldiers between Monday and Tuesday last week, during the invasion.
The officiating Pastor and General Overseer of Salvation Ministries, David Ibiyeomie in his sermon, lauded the state government for the thanksgiving service.
Pastor Ibiyiomie prayed for the nation and Rivers State.
