By Femi Oguntayo

A governorship hopeful under the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ekiti State Capt. Su nday Adebomi, has condemned the approach of the governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose to tackle the issue of killer-herdsmen in the State.
Adebomi made this assertion at another edition of ‘My Agenda’, a program organized by the Ekiti State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalist (NUJ), held at the press centre hall along Ilawe road, Ado-Ekiti, according to him, security personnel should be allowed to tackle the menace. “Fayose is just exposing the lives of innocent people to danger by telling them to fight herdsmen. You need professionals to tackle insurgency, not hunters, as security personnel, I want to say, that the killing by the herdsmen is political”. He therefore promised to make security of lives and property his top priority if elected as governor of the State.

Before We Sleep - Stray Bullet: Fayemi And The Rest of Us by Tai Oguntayo

Image
Take it or leave it, former Governor of Ekiti State and Minister of Mines & solid minerals, Dr Kayode Fayemi, is the man in the news now. If not for the giant strides in his ministry, it will be for Ekiti State controversial administrative panel or for his rumoured governorship ambition. For whichever amongst the afore listed, Kayode the son of Fayemi is in the news and no one can take that away.

It will not be only time wasting but also hypocritical for anyone to think that everybody's opinion on Dr Kayode Fayemi can be the same or that comments on him should be pleasing to his ears always. One thing that is however crystal clear, is that though a leader may not talk, he knows when any of his followers is sincere and when he or she is being hypocritical. So, there is no cause for disagreement amongst the followers, each and everyone should be free to pursue whichever way they believe will make them to be on the right side of posterity.

For some time now, I've rested this…
