Ekiti Lawmaker Backs Fayose’s Criticism Of Buhari

A member of the House of Representatives, representing Ekiti South Federal Constituency 2, Hon. Akin Awodumila has backed the criticisms by Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, against General Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) government, saying the governor should be commended by all lovers of democracy for providing credible and vibrant opposition.

Hon. Awodumila who described Governor Fayose as the emerging leader of the opposition in Nigeria was reacting to statement credited to a former House of Representatives member, Bamidele Faparusi, that Governor Fayose was dragging the name of Ekiti in the mud for criticising President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said: “Only an intending dictator will castigate any Nigerian for making his position on the APC-led Federal Government public and democracy is not about suppressing people’s freedom of expression.”

The Reps member said himself and the entire people of his constituency were pleased with Governor Fayose for demonstrating the true Ekitiman in him, describing the governor as the emerging national leader of the opposition.
