A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, SAN, met with the Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, delegates and other leaders of the state chapter on Friday.
Turaki vowed that he and others will deploy their legal skill to reclaim the party’s governorship victory in Ekiti State.
He condemned the deployment of 30,000 security personnel by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government, noting that a similar show of force could not be deployed to tackle the Boko Haram insurgency and other security challenges.
The former Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs similarly condemned the invasion of the residence of one of Nigeria’s elder statesmen, Chief Edwin Clark by police officers.
“We have never had a government that is so despotic, divisive and discriminatory as the Buhari Administration,” Turaki noted.
“We will address the issue of state police. As part of our determination to address the principle of restructuring from various perspectives such as true federalism, fiscal federalism, devolution of power, resource control, statism and regionalism.
“We need a president with such qualities; a person who can relate easily with other world leaders in terms of knowledge; a person who has no excess baggage of corruption or any other character deficiencies and who will make Nigerians proud. I am that person. I am fit, strong and ready to go,” he added.
