  • Fayose wants FG to review revenue sharing formula, dialogue with Kanu
  • Ado-Ekiti- Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose,
    has said a review of federal revenue sharing
    formula is the only panacea to the growing
    ethnic-based tensions in the country.
    The governor also called on the Federal
    Government to dialogue with the leader of the
    Independent People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu,
    instead of muzzling him and his group
    Fayose, who made the statement on Sunday,
    advised the Federal Government to be equitable,
    fair and just to all sections of the country,
    especially, the Igbo people, whom he said had
    been grossly marginalised.
    Condemning the October 1 ultimatum issued to
    Igbo by some northern youth leaders to leave
    the North, the governor said the federal
    government must take steps that will address
    the agitation of the people.
    He said, “As much as secession is not an
    option, the handlers of our democracy must be
    equitable, fair and just to everyone.
    “The igbo have continued to suffer because of
    the perceived role of Emeka Ojukwu. If we say
    past governments didn’t do well what has the
    present government done differently?
    “I agree that secession is not desirable but there
    must be justice and equity. When people are
    being killed or villified, you must expect a
    reaction. No region should begin to use power
    to oppress another. If Nigeria is truly one, it will
    not get to a stage that one region will openly
    call on another to leave its land.
    “The Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is doing
    his best but that is not enough. We must
    remember that those who make positive change
    impossible make violent change inevitable. A
    situation where a section will be suffering
    forever because of their role in the civil war is
    not fair.”
    Suggesting the way forward, the chairman of the
    Peoples Democratic Party’s Governors Forum
    called for a review of “the revenue sharing
    formula because it is not a true reflection of our
    collective interest. For the country to move
    forward the states should takeover
    economically.”
    He also urged the federal governments to
    dialogue with Kanu and release other members
    of the IPOB in detention.
    “The Federal Government must purge itself of
    some responsibilities because the actual
    development is at grassroots. The states and the
    local governments are nodal points of
    developments.
    “The Federal Government should dialogue with
    the aggrieved and forge ahead. Using force will
    not help because some of those things they
    thought had died in the past are now rearing
    their ugly heads.
    “It is no doubt that (Nnamdi) Kanu is
    representing the interest of the younger
    generation of Igbo. Instead of fighting him, they
    should release them and invite him for a
    dialogue.
    “His struggle has become an ideological
    movement with massive followers irrespective of
    what some people are telling the Federal
    Government to curry a favour, which is
    momentarily. By the action of this government
    they have made Kanu more popular.
    “Without mincing words, the present government
    has divided Nigeria more than ever. It is the
    legitimate right of the people to agitate if they
    feel they are wrongly treated. You can’t get
    peace where there is no justice.
    “Nigeria belongs to all of us. It is the wish of
    some people that an Igbo man does not become
    the president but this is against the spirit and
    letters of our constitution.”
