Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has described the report of the discovery and release of 82 additional Chibok girls from Boko Haram captivity as diversionary tactics aimed at diverting attention away from the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“What is not missing cannot be found. Despite the strenuous efforts at cover-up, discerning Nigerians understand that the stories do not add up,” said Fayose in a statement released in Ado-Ekiti on Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi.
According to the governor, the Buhari Presidency usually resorts to “flying dubious kites and selling
cheap dummies to distract the people and obfuscate the issue at hand” whenever it was under fire for under-performing or had serious issues it could not sufficiently explain to the people.
“Right now, a matter of urgent national importance arresting the attention of all and sundry is that of the President’s health. While I continue to pray, in conjunction with other Nigerians, for the President’s quick recovery, I condemn without equivocation this shameless playing on the intelligence and psyche of Nigerians taking undue advantage of the vexed issue of the so-called Chibok girls.
“The questions are, Which Chibok girls are they talking about? Chibok girls who purportedly were writing Physics WAEC examinations but cannot speak simple English? Chibok girls who were shielded from the media? Till today the media have not been allowed access to the so-called Chibok girls. When is the next batch of Chibok girls coming? When is the next make-believe?
“When there is the need for another cover-up, distraction and diversion of the people’s attention and focus, they will fly their usual kite and sell the self-same jaded dummy”, he added.
