Hold Fayemi’s wife responsible for killing of Oye Ekiti University Students – PDP Media Group

The Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party National New
Media Group (PDP-NNMG) has said that wife of the State Governor,  Mrs
Bisi Fayemi must be held responsible for the yesterday’s violent
protest by students of the Federal University,  Oye Ekiti (FUOYE),
which led to the death of some students and destruction of properties.

The group expressed its condolences to families of those whose lives
were lost, praying that God will give them the strength to bear the
loss.

In a statement on Wednesday, by its State Coordinator, Bola Agboola,
the PDP-NNMG asked why similar protest held by the students of FUOYE
in Ikole Ekiti did not turn violent.

“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.”

The PDP-NNMG, which lamented the loss of lives and properties, added
that “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 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.”

While querying the rationale behind the local governments tour
embarked upon by the governor’s wife,  the PDP-NNMG asked;  “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?”
