Thank you very much Chairman!
It is indeed very gratifying to note that Governor Kayode Fayemi is gradually filling the void which his predecessor,the amiable erstwhile Governor of Ekiti State ,Chief Ayo Fayose left behind.
What we Nigerians need most at this moment are Leaders like him , who boldly speak up by calling a spade a spade.
Democracy isn’t merely going to the ballot box without a genuine people’s Constitution
and a rule of law.
Futhermore,the restructuring of the country is very urgent and imperative too.
The use of landmass instead of demography as a criterion by those illiterate bandits,
despots and rogue usurpers of power,who ran a relay misgoverning and pillaging our fatherland from the 1980s to 1999, in creating surplus States and LGAs (Local Government Areas) in the North, must not be a fait accompli.
Thus, Lagos State with a population of over 12 millions has only 20 LGAs while Kano State with a population of less than four Millions has got 56 LGAs.
Furthermore,the South East with about two thirds of the population of the entire North,
has only 95 LGAs,while the North has 474 LGAs.
Such a structural imbalance must not be allowed in a Democracy.
It is on reccord that prior to our Indepedence from Great Britain,our Colonial Masters had
carved the East,North and Western Regions into 12,14 and 9 Provinces respectively and that was based somehow on demography not on landmass.
Even that,according to a former British Colonial Official, Mr Harold Wilson,who died a couple of years ago,our Colonial Masters had at the behest of the British Colonial Office in London , manipulated our demography in favour of the North.
How I wish the ever-smiling handsome and amiable Governor of Ekiti State, Chief Kayode Fayemi,who happens to be the Chairman of South West Governors’ Forum, could use his good office to call upon the President and intercede on the behalves of Chief Omoyele Sowore and Olawale Bakare,who are being held in President Buhari”s DSS Gestapo Gulag inspite of a court order for their immediate release.
No to the status quo ante bellum!
