Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) – National New Media Group, PDP (NNMG), Ekiti State Chapter has said that Governor Kayode Fayemi’s wife, Bisi must be held responsible for the killing of Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) students.
In a statement on Wednesday, September 11th, 2019 by its State Coordinator, Bola Agboola said;
“In Ikole Ekiti, students of the Ikole Campus of FUOYE also protested yesterday. The protest went smoothly ostensibly because there was no police interruption.”
“The chiefs in Ikole Ekiti addressed the students, calmed them down and promised them necessary intervention and that was the end of the protest,” the group said.”
The group said it was obvious that Fayemi’s wife, who was on tour of local councils in the State did not play her role as a leader by addressing the protesting students and at least “promising them that government will intervene in their plight.”
“Information has it that the students only wanted to express their frustration on lack of power supply and exorbitant bills by the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) to the governor’s wife and question must be asked as to why one of the policemen in her entourage slapped one of the students.”
“We were in Ekiti State when Ekiti State University (EKSU) students protested over the imposition of N10,000 late registration fee and the governor then, Ayo Fayose did not order policemen to shoot the students. Instead, he allowed them to come to the Governor’s Office where he personally addressed the protesting students and calmed them down.”
“In what capacity is the governor’s wife touring local councils in Ekiti State? Where is the fund coming from? Has she replaced her husband as governor of Ekiti State?”
