Insecurity: Take Courage, Prosecute Internal Saboteurs – Bishop Tells Buhari

October 17 2021 | The Biafra Restoration Voice

The Catholic Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, Felix Ajakaye has admonished President Muhammadu Buhari to summon the courage and confront the security challenges frontally by arresting and prosecuting those he termed as “internal saboteurs.”

The bishop expressed dismay that nobody had neither been arrested nor prosecuted weeks after President Buhari claimed to have identified some unscrupulous notable faces behind the ethnic agitations currently been championed by Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho.

Speaking during the thanksgiving mass held in commemoration of the third anniversary of the administration of Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, the bishop argued that the suspects should have been behind the bars by now if the government was proactive enough.

At the ceremony held at the St Patrick’s Catholic Church, Old Garage, Ajakaye disclosed that Nigerian leaders must be ready to do things positively different in order to get the nation out of the woods.

The clergy who lamented that insecurity had turned to a monster said “I am convinced that we can win the terrible monster if most of our leaders set aside selfish and nepotistic attitude and be sincere and face the problem frontally. Internal saboteurs should be fished out and properly prosecuted.

“They are the real enemies of the country. If you do not deal with the internal enemies, you cannot deal with the external enemies. Our fellow brothers and sisters at the warfront must be paid their dues as and when due. They must be well equipped and taken care of if we want to achieve concrete results”.

“Why is it only Kanu and Adeyemo, what of herdsmen, bandits, kidnappers and Boko Haram? Unless we begin to do things right, things will not be right with us,” he said.

Ajakaye, who hailed Fayemi for his developmental strides in the three years of his second term in office, however, charged him to “look inwards and review the past three years personally. The best appraisal is sincere self-appraisal.

“Since you are now beginning the last year in the second term, kindly show the way out to the key members of your team who do not key genuinely and purposely into your journey of restoration and consolidation, building for transformation. This is important.

“Kindly make the fourth and last year as chief executive of Ekiti State your year of righting the wrongs. Your year of upholding the positives and discarding the negatives,” the bishop said.

According to him, “lots of damage have been done already on the roads. There are a lot of accidents too because of the influx of these vehicles, many of the drivers don’t know the terrains. I suggest that we put barriers on our state roads to avoid further monumental damage.”

In his remark, Governor Fayemi said he was a product of grace, saying “whatever we have is unmerited because there are a thousand others who can do better”.

The governor, who assured Ekiti people that he would do his part and leave the governorship position with his head high, paid tributes to his predecessors in office, Niyi Adebayo and Ayodele Fayose, who he said did their beat.

“If we keep building on what other leaders had done, Ekiti of our dream would be achieved. Leadership is service, leadership is sacrifice” ~Fayemi said.

Among dignitaries at the church service are former governors Adebayo and Fayose; the Deputy Governor, Bisi Egbeyemi; former deputy governor Prof Modupe Adelabu; and Nigerian Ambassador to Netherland, Dr Eniola Ajayi.
