Nigerians are calling for the security of Governor Olurotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, being the leader of the South-West Security outfit ‘AMOTEKUN’as and as he consistently puts Garba Shehu where he rightly belongs.
You will recall that Governor Akeredolu also presided over the seventeen governors of the Southern states of Nigeria who recently unanimously ban open grazing by the Fulani herdsmen across their lands.
Akeredolu had on May 19 responded to the utterances of AGF Malami on Channels TV for comparing the killer herdsmen with spare parts sellers. Akeredolu is presently adjudged by many Nigerians on tweeter as the most courageous statesman in Nigeria.
As Akeredolu is currently trending on Twitter, a tweet by Nwadile@valerian said: ”As far as I’m concerned Gov. Akeredolu SAN, the former President of the NBA needs to be protected at all cost. He’s not just speaking truth to power he’s putting Garba Shehu where Garba rightly belongs.”
Moreover, after the gruesome murder of Ahmed Gulak, in Owerri, Imo State, Governor Akeredolu said: “This cowardly act is calculated to instigate Nigerians against each other, particularly Northerners, against the Igbo living outside the South East.”
He said: “The news of the death of an APC chieftain and former Special Adviser on Political Matters in the last Administration, Ahmed Gulak, in Owerri, Imo State, this morning, is very shocking and disturbing. The details of the tragic incident remain sketchy. A press statement credited to the Imo State Police Command claimed that some bandits were responsible for the gruesome murder of a man who was a visitor to the State. This is unacceptable.”
“This is one murder too many. It is senseless and wicked. The perpetrators of this heinous act are enemies of this country. This contrivance is meant to mislead, confuse and destroy. It bears the unmistakable, despicable imprints of fifth columnists bent on setting the country on the path of conflagration. These criminals must not be allowed to succeed.”
“This cowardly act is calculated to instigate Nigerians against each other, particularly Northerners, against the Igbo living outside the South East. We must confront the enemies of the people with a view to neutralizing them. This is definitely not the time for political correctness. Banditry should not be allowed to subvert the legitimacy of the current Government at all levels.”
