ADO – EKITI – Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, at the weekend in Ado- Ekiti admitted that there are many evil forces working against the success of the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
Osinbajo hinted this during the burial service of Mrs Moroluke Fakoyede, mother of the Secretary to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ola Olukoyede held at Saint Luke’s Anglican Church, Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State on Friday.
The ceremony attracted important dignitaries among who were the Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi; former Rivers State Governor and Minister of Transport, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi; former Commissioner for Transport in Lagos, Muiz Banire (SAN); Ekiti State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Asuquo Amba, among other dignitaries.
The VC, who used the occasion to reply Buhari’s critics, alleging incompetence, stressed that the fifth columnists in government were actually responsible for some bad impression about the current administration.
“This country requires everybody to be on board to work hard. I belong to All Progressives Congress (APC), a party that belongs to Chief Obafemi Awolowo. It is not true that President Buhari doesn’t know how to govern; it is not because we have not done enough. There are saboteurs and many fifth columnists working against us, but we are going to triumph. The concern of President Buhari and APC and those of us in his government is for Nigeria to move forward and we shall achieve this. All the good social investment programmes like tradermoni, the N-power and others will soon start to bear fruits and manifest. We are all going to benefit from Buhari’s administration. I became frightened when the man of God said only those of us in powers are enjoying. This is not true. We have done our best for Nigerians,” he stated.
Osinbajo praised the late Fakoyede for her honesty, saying her good deeds shall continue to bear good fruits in the lives of the children.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, said the late Mrs Fakoyede worked very hard and that the generations yet unborn will continually remember her for being caring, painstaking and honest.
The Speaker, represented by the lawmaker representing Ekiti North Federal constituency II, Hon. Ibrahim Oanrewaju, expressed the Speaker’s condolences to the family, saying the good Lord shall grant them the fortitude to bear the death of the highly respectable community leader.
Earlier in his sermon, the Cleric-in-charge of the Church, Reverend Mathew Ayorinde Ajao, who quoted copiously from the book of Revelation Chapter 14 verses 12-13, appealed to Nigerian leaders to always put their trust in God and work for the people rather than themselves.
The Cleric expressed disappointment at the way some leaders are piloting the affairs of the nation, lamenting that apart from the increasing scourge of poverty, that Nigerians are not enjoying all the basic amenities that can improve their wellbeing.
