APC in Ekiti State says there is no immunity for any governor in government house. This is contained in a statement the party released yesterday September 13th in reaction to a newspaper advertorial by Governor Fayose in which he described President Buhari as a dictator for allegedly sending DSS to comb the Akwa Ibom Government House recently. APC’s statement which was signed by its publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, after the cut…
“Let us educate Fayose that a Government House is not the same as foreign embassies or missions that enjoy physical immunity from security activities by local armed forces.
While a governor enjoys immunity from physical and body security search, the same cannot be said of the Government House because no law in the nation’s constitution says the Government House should be a breeding ground for insurrection and insurgency where state enemies can assemble arms to topple a legitimate government and we suspect Fayose as an accomplice in the arms stockpiling saga in the Akwa Ibom Government House, otherwise there is no reason for him to be edgy and agitated in his response.
We know why Fayose is blackmailing DSS in this matter. Ekiti Government House is home to thugs and criminal elements armed to the teeth that the governor has been using against the opposition. They were used on massive scale during the last elections to attack the opponents.
As we speak, they are still lodged in the Government House where they take off at nights to rob and kidnap innocent Ekiti people. We never had this kind of experience for four years of Governor Kayode Fayemi until Fayose started his campaign with importation of criminals that have been stalking the state residents.
We call on DSS to be alert to its responsibilities of maintaining internal cohesion and security integrity across the country and should comb everywhere, including the Aso Rock if need be, to ensure that no man in authority constitutes himself as a security risk to the nation’s unity
