The governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose has sparked up a big controversy and political uproar in respect to the 2015 general elections after paying for the publication of the controversial advert on the front page of Monday Punch news paper. Late Gen. Sani Abacha, Murtala Muhammed, former President Musa Yar’Adua and the photograph of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari with a question mark on his image, which indicates and wishes death on APC’s Presidential candidate, Buhari.
However, Gen. Buhari in a reaction to the publication, issued a statement on his Facebook page on Monday morning, saying: Governor Fayose of Ekiti State released an advert in the front of the Punch and Daily Sun newspapers this morning, abusing a Bible verse and insulting Muslims, especially Northerners.
He put three former Heads of State who are Muslims and Northerners together in images and suggested that what happened to them may happen to Muhammadu Buhari.
First, it is totally unprofessional and abusive to Ethical codes of Journalism for Punch and Sun Newspapers to publish such content. Punch and Sun Newspapers must revoke the advert immediately and apologize to the people of Nigeria, Buhari and the APC for such folly.
Second, If till now, there is no denouncement of the post from PDP and GEJ it means that they support it because Fayose is a stakeholder of the party, and a front man for GEJ’s campaign.
GEJ signed a peace pact last week against election violence and he, through the insensitivity of this advert, is the first to break that pact.
The Jonathan administration is cruising on lies and propaganda. It is bent on amassing votes to siphon more public funds and has no interest of Nigerians at heart. It is bound to fail.
We are for peace. Make sure to get your PVC and vote these bigots out of power come February 14. Encourage your neighbors, let them know that GEJ has nothing to offer them but lies and empty promises.
Let us channel our frustration to the goodwill of this Nation.
Peace. Nigeria. Peace.
