Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose says he wonders what kind of president issues a directive to his Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, and is not ashamed to tell Nigerians 2 months later that he didn’t know his order was disobeyed.
Fayose was reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement on Monday that he didn’t know Mr. Idris spent less than 24 hours in Benue and left for Nasarawa after he was ordered to relocate to the violence-hit state.
President Buhari said this on Monday during a meeting with some stakeholders at the Government House in Makurdi, Benue state capital.
On January 9, the President had ordered the IGP to immediately move to Benue State to restore law and order and prevent further loss of lives and properties, from escalating and spreading in the state.
Reacting to Mr. Buhari’s statement, Fayose said: “What manner of a President will give order to the IGP on January 9, only to be telling Nigerians on March 12 (2 months after) that he never knew that the IGP disobeyed his order? Does this President really know anything about happenings around him, not to talk about Nigeria?
“I am not even sure that President Buhari is aware of anything about the abducted 110 Dapchi school girls. We are in serious problem in Nigeria.”
