Evangelist Bamidele Olomilua, former Governor of the old Ondo State and a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, in this interview spoke extensively on many topical and controversial issues including the formation of the APC and its presidential election victory, President Mummadu Buhari’s approach to governance, rule of law, anti-corruption crusade, the economy and the attitude of Governor Ayo Fayose.
Do you suspect Gov. Ayodele Fayose’s regular grievance of President Muhammadu Buhari is proper? On the opposite, we appreciate elders in Yorubaland. It’s miles in other places that a few human beings think that every one animals are same, whereas in actual fact, now not all animals are identical. In politics a younger man can arise to raise an issue, however I personally think that it is not right to abuse the President or to insult him. You are insulting the entire kingdom, while you are insulting the president, or whilst you are abusing him, you are abusing the entire range of individuals who agree with in him and put him there. I don’t assume it’s far right for any governor or each person at all to abuse the us of a and abuse the president. You can make notion to him as to what you think ought to be accomplished in certain regions, however nobody, either culturally and whichever attention you placed it, have to abuse the President. But we should appreciate the ones in better authority, even supposing it’s miles your opponent, you ought to try to respect and accommodate them. I don’t suppose it’s miles proper to abuse or make terrible comments about a well realize chief. I don’t suppose it is proper. Governor Fayose has been raising alarm for a while now that President Buhari is making plans to apply the final results of the army probe into the alleged partisanship of its officials in Ekiti 2014 governorship election to united states of america him, do you observed this worry has basis? I learnt that the navy disciplined their men as regard some misdemeanour, which means that they need to have were given certain information. The most effective component I sense is that if the Federal authorities feels that the election were wrongly interpreted to bring the incorrect man here, they might begin with the independent countrywide Electoral commission, if INEC now admit that they use terrorism or oppression of someone to declare the incorrect candidate. Or if they located a fault in the process, intimidation, oppression, can that be used as a foundation for putting off the Governor, would that be enough motive for casting off him. Because he says they may be threatening to cast off him. How are they going to take away him? Who will make pronouncement for his removal? Is it the court, the Federal government or INEC? The concern of the Governor, could surely create an ecosystem of worry for all of the participants of his government. I suppose his fear is unfounded.
