APC Accuses Fayose Of Funding IPOB
The All Progressives Congress (APC) is point its finger in Fayose's direction again.
The party claims Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State is one of the sponsors of IPOB and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The party said the governor’s actions and utterances have shown that he is a strong support of the groups actions.
Fayose had urged the federal government to embrace dialogue in the resolution of the group's agitation after the Nigerian military declared IPOB a terrorist organisation.
He had earlier accused the government and the military of ethnic cleansing in their handling of the situation in Abia state.
However, the Publicity Secretary of the APC in Ekiti State, Taiwo Olatunbosun, thinks otherwise.
Olatunbosun alleged that Fayose demonstrated the seriousness of his support for the collapse of Nigeria when he released his telephone number 070300000393 and email: firstname.lastname@example.org, urging all that were interested in the Biafra cause to contact him.
"On April 26 and as published by The Nigerian Tribune Newspaper and its online publication on April 27, 2017, Fayose said he was working in conjunction with Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, to raise funds for Kanu, stressing that he was taking his support for Kanu beyond showing solidarity in court by raising funds that would be deposited in an account opened in Kanu’s name,” Olatunbosun alleged.
Olatunbosun insisted that Fayose is a threat to the Nigeria’s unity and the economic survival of the people.
In the meantime, Fayose has described the allegations as baseless.
