Ekiti State All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ignore Governor Ayo Fayose’s comment, which described the release of 21 Chibok girls as “diversionary”.

The party described Fayose’s latest diatribe as “insincere and infantile,” and apologised “on behalf of the people of Ekiti State” to Nigerians and the agonised parents of the Chibok girls on the outburst.

Fayose had been persistent in his claim that the Chibok girls were not missing, saying the Federal Government’s claim on their rescue was a distraction from the harsh economic reality in the country.

In a statement yesterday by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, the APC declared that “Fayose is on his own in his reckless criticisms of the Federal Government over fears of repercussions on his ceaseless infractions against the law”.

The party lauded the President for keeping his electoral promise to rescue the girls.

It urged the President to intensify efforts to secure release of the remaining girls.

APC showered encomiums on the Armed Forces, the international community and other non-governmental institutions, especially the Bring Back Our Girls Group, for their persistent roles in the rescue of the Chibok girls.

It said the feat was a fulfilment of Buhari’s campaign promise to secure release of the girls and reunite them with their families.

Olatunbosun said: “It is unfortunate that the governor of a state known for decency and honour could utter such a horrible statement on a sensitive national issue that borders on the lives of young school girls, whose parents have been in agony in the last two years.

“Nigerians know that Fayose is a reckless talkative, who plays politics with everything and anything but never in their imagination think he can be so heartless to say the girls were not missing.

“Now that the 21 girls were shown live on TV being reunited with their parents in an emotional ceremony, will Fayose say it was stage-managed?

“Fayose is taking his pound of flesh from the Federal Government for his several infractions on the law over which federal agencies are investigating him, and he believes the best way to blackmail the Federal Government is ceaseless criticism so he can accuse Buhari of witch-hunt when eventually the law beckons to account for his lawless conduct.”

Apologising to the parents of the girls and urging them to take Fayose for “who he is”, Olatunbosun regretted the governor’s “callous disposition” to the plight of the children and their parents, wondering if Fayose would have taken the same position if the girls were his daughters.
