Turaki Takes Campaign To Ekiti, Says Buhari Leading Most Despotic, Divisive Govt
Ekiti, Nigeria News 10th September, 2018: Frontline PDP Presidential Aspirant, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, SAN, has met with the Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, delegates and other leaders of the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP on Friday as part of his nationwide consultations ahead of the presidential primary of the party.
Turaki who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria vowed that he and others will deploy their legal skill to reclaim the party’s governorship victory in Ekiti State which is a matter before the Election Petition tribunal.
He condemned the deployment of 30,000 security personnel by the federal government to rig the Ekiti State governorship election in favour of the APC when a similar show of force could not be deployed to tackle the Boko Haram insurgency and other security challenges.
The former Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs similarly condemned the invasion of the residence of one of Nigeria’s elder statesmen, Chief Edwin Clark by police officers.
“We have never had a government that is so despotic, divisive and discriminatory as the Buhari Administration,” Turaki noted.
“We will address the issue of state police,” he said, “as part of our determination to address the principle of restructuring from various perspectives such as true federalism, fiscal federalism, devolution of power, resource control, statism and regionalism.”
The presidential aspirant pointed out that the Fayose-led government has been working to provide critical infrastructure which are legacy projects because the governor has vision and he is well educated, young, dynamic and courageous enough to take bold decisions.
Turaki said further that: “We need a president with such qualities- a person who can relate easily with other world leaders in terms of knowledge; a person who has no excess baggage of corruption or any other character deficiencies and who will make Nigerians proud.”
“I am that person,” he said, adding: “I am fit, strong and ready to go.”
The chairman, PDP Ekiti State, Barrister Gboyega Oguntuase described Turaki as a tested and trusted person.
“We have a positive option or alternative that Nigerians are waiting for,” the chairman said.
