|Buhari Out To Manipulate Media In His Favour – Fayose by AloyalNigerian(m): 2:15am On Apr 26, 2017|
Governor Fayose of Ekiti state has lambasted President Buhari insisting that the president is out to intimidate journalists and swing media in his favour. The governor in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, described the act of expelling Adetayo of Punch Newspaper as a “sign of what is to come from a dictatorial government that desires that the media must only tell Nigerians what it wants them to hear and nothing more.”
The Ekiti state governor said he warned Nigerians of the emerging dictatorship of the Buhari-led All Progressives Congress, APC, government. According to Fayose: “Even though the Punch Correspondent was recalled yesterday, owing to public outcry, the dangerous message of intolerance to freedom of expression and of the press was passed loud and clear. “When they invaded the Akwa Ibom state Government House with armed men of the Department of State Security (DSS), I raised alarm then and I did warn that Nigeria was being returned to 1984 when President Buhari ruled the country like a maximum ruler. “When I said Nigerians irrespective of their political parties should rise in condemnation of the President Buhari’s government emerging dictatorship, many of our friends in the media opted to keep silent. “Some even hailed the Department of State Security (DSS) when the service invaded the Ekiti state House of Assembly and abducted a member of the House.
“I warned then that no one will be spared by the time this Buhari’s emerging dictatorship reached its peak. I did say then that by the time they are through with politicians, they will move to the judiciary and then to the media. “Now the tyranny has gotten to the media and it will only take fervent prayers from men of the media profession for the country not to descend to that era of closure of media houses, arrest and indefinite detention of journalists.” Fayose called on journalists in the country to rise in one voice and protect the democratic rights of freedom of expression. “As at today, no one knows how many Nigerians are languishing in detention in APC controlled states for freely expressing their opinions and the media must not close its eyes to this infringement on the rights of Nigerians to freedom of information,” he added.

How are they different? Is it not in the same country and under the same political party as per the APC at state n federal levels? Are the voters not indigenes and residents in various states?

Has Fayose told a lie. It is sickening that you ignore the message and focus on the messenger. Have people been arrest, detained unjustly in this era or not. Truth is indeed dead.
