“Senator Makarfi is pained by this brazen infringement on the individual and collective rights of the people as enshrined in our constitution and considers it an assault not only on Governor Ayo Fayose and the PDP, but also a knife through the heart of the nation’s democracy, by an agency of state that is funded to protect those rights amongst other functions.
“As we approach 2019 elections, these signals are ominous as they portend a tendency towards desperation and the proclivity to deploy instruments of state towards the attainment of a predetermined agenda.
“Situations such as this bring into sharper focus, Senator Makarfi’s arguments and appeals, with respect to restructuring the country, that we also consider restructuring our institutions in such a way that they are insulated from political control to enable them serve the state as opposed to serving political leaders of the time, which is what obtains at the moment.”
As the people of Ekiti state heads to the polls, the presidential aspirant appealed to the police and other security agencies to operate in a manner that would inspire confidence in the people.
He urged the federal government to rise to the occasion by providing a level-playing field for candidates standing for the election in Ekiti state, and subsequent elections so as to ensure the development of democracy and the rule of law.
Makarfi pointed out that the entire world, not only Nigerians, are watching with interest to see how situations unfold in the coming days. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
