Ekiti State governor Ayodele Fayose challenged the authority of Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari when he rocked military colours to a public function in Ado Ekiti earlier this week. This is according to a statement by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ekiti State chapter.
Taiwo Olatunbosun, the party’s publicity secretary said today:
“We have always insisted that Fayose is a law unto himself and a threat to democracy in Nigeria, showing contempt for the law and would do anything to undermine the integrity of the supremacy of the constitution.
“As a man who has constituted himself as the law, Fayose has demonstrated several times that he has no respect for the nation’s constitutional democracy and the rule of law.
“The President of the federation is allowed to wear army uniform to perform certain official functions while the officers and men of the force can also wear it, and soi by wearing army uniform to perform an official duty in the parliament, Fayose is challenging the authority of the President who is the only Head of Government allowed by law to wear army uniform.”
