Ekiti State governor Ayo Fayose has once again fired at President Muhammadu Buhari, labelling the retired military general a “tyrant”.
In a Tuesday press release sent in by Fayose’s media aide, Lere Olayinka, the governor said:
“When I said Nigerians irrespective of their political parties should rise in condemnation of the President Buhari’s government emerging dictatorship, many of our friends in the media opted to keep silent.
“Some even hailed the Department of State Security (DSS) when the service invaded the Ekiti state House of Assembly and abducted a member of the House.
“I warned then that no one will be spared by the time this Buhari’s emerging dictatorship reached its peak. I did say then that by the time they are through with politicians, they will move to the judiciary and then to the media.
“Now the tyranny has gotten to the media and it will only take fervent prayers from men of the media profession for the country not to descend to that era of closure of media houses, arrest and indefinite detention of journalists.”
