Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has expressed displeasure following the sack and arrest of Ganduje’s Aide Salihu Tanko Yakasai for speaking about the ills of the APC government.
Fayose has commended Yakasai for being able to speak the truth to people in power. He said that singular action has made Yakasai the latest hero of democracy and has served as a hope for Nigeria.
Fayose joined other advocates to agitate for the release of Yakasai, as he has done nothing to warrant the arrest. Accusing military officials, Fayose said it is sad that the military are only efficient in persecuting those who speak against the government.
Fayose also assured that the sack of Yakasai is the beginning of his rise politically, as he had stood tall amidst darkness and selfishness of leadership.
Yakasai who was arrested yesterday stated on his twitter page that the APC government has failed everyone in their primary assignment to secure lives and properties.
