Senate planning to silence Nigerians, cover up corruption – Fayose

Senate planning to silence Nigerians, cover up corruption – Fayose


Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has lambasted the Senate for the controversial ‘Bill for an Act to Prohibit Frivolous Petitions and Other Matters’ otherwise known as as the anti-social media bill.

Fayose said the bill was part of a plot by the All Progressives Congress to hide corruption and prevent Nigerians from exposing them.

While addressing journalists in Lagos on Sunday, he said, “We are going to release a lot of things. They have attempted to cow everybody and that is why they are sponsoring the anti-social media bill in the National Assembly. They want to cow the press and the people. I am surprised that the media is quiet about this bill. The press can’t talk again, they are afraid and it shouldn’t be so.”

Surprisingly, a Peoples Democratic Party lawmaker, Senator Biodun Olujimi, who served as Fayose’s deputy when he was governor between 2003 and 2006, is one of those supporting the controversial bill which was sponsored by Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah.

Fayose said the move to gag freedom of speech was a reflection of the President’s mindset.

“Most of those who supported Buhari one way or the other will regret it because when you promote a lion and don’t remember to guard the claws and the jaws of that lion, one day, you will end up in its stomach,” he warned.

The governor predicted 15 things that would happen in Nigeria in 2016. He said Nigeria would experience extreme poverty while the rate of corruption would rise.

He added that power generation would drop while 6.7 million Nigerians would lose their jobs. He said the Chibok girls would not return in 2016.

He said, “There are 15 things that will happen in this country in 2016 that I will make public. There will be so much disobedience to court orders. There will be removal of oil subsidy within the first quarter of next year.

“Corruption under Buhari will be on the increase, poverty in this nation will be at its highest in history. I want to tell you that power generation will be at its lowest ebb in 2016. Our earnings will be low. I can’t remember some (predictions) but I will address another press conference to tell Nigerians what to expect. We cannot continue with this deceit and propaganda.

“A lot of noble men have gone underground. They cannot talk because some of them are waiting for political appointments. Where are the members of the Bring Back Our Girls? Most of them are special advisers, commissioners and ministers.

“In 2016, our girls will never come back because the BBOG people has started enjoying the booty. Why will an armed robber be fighting a pickpocket?”

The governor condemned the Federal Government’s probe of a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki. He urged the President to “make public, the monies spent by the Office of the National Security Adviser in the last 16 years.”
