Kashamu, reacting to Fayose’s condemnation of the alleged sealing off of the residence of the former Governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Kwakwanso, by the police, said the governor lacks the temperament and credentials to counsel anyone on democracy and the rule of law.

According to the Tribune, in a statement issued on Friday, August 26, in Lagos, Kashamu said Fayose’s sudden posture as a latter-day human rights activist and advocate for the rule of law distorts the authenticity of civil rights advocacy.

He said the governor’s political trail is muddied by his inglorious acts of lawlessness, impunity and flagrant disregard for the rule of law.

The senator said Fayose’s crass lawlessness, impunity and flagrant disregard for democracy and the rule of Law are at the roots of the leadership crisis rocking the PDP.

He said: “The nation will not forget how he belligerently hampered the courts in Ekiti State when some persons instituted a matter against him at the Ekiti State High Court in the build up to his election in 2014. Many of his benefactors and indigenes of Ekiti State are still squirming from the sting of his high-handedness and betrayal.

“You cannot give what you do not have and a man who is himself guilty of a human rights violation, lawlessness and impunity cannot become a judge, jury and crusader for any advocacy for the sanctity of the law. He is merely playing to the gallery.”

Kashamu said it was common knowledge that Kwakwanso and his successor, the governor of Kano state, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje have some political differences which bother on ego and leadership of the APC in the state even while they are members of the same party.

He suggested that it was too cheap for Fayose to drag President Buhari into the Kano state political crisis; adding that the governor’s constant bashing of the president on any and every issue or incident has become predictable, monotonous and childish.

 “It is high time he realized that the elections are over and the President is the leader of all. If anyone seeks to denigrate him, he is not just rubbishing the symbol of our sovereignty but the entire country and its people,” Kashamu said.

“Like I have often said some of those making the noise are doing so for selfish reasons. Fayose was the loudest in criticizing the Federal Government’s anti-corruption until it was revealed that he benefitted from the arms fund and got a lot of kickbacks from contracts in Ekiti State. The need to launder his squalid image is understandable but a pot does not get scrubbed clean of soot because it is audacious enough to call a kettle black.”

Meanwhile, former governor of Kano state, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has petitioned President Muhamnadu Buhari, the Senate president, Dr Bukola Saraki and Police Service Commission (PSC) over alleged invasion and sealing off of his office.

In the petition dated August 24 and signed by Aliyu Sani Madaki and Yusuf Bello Suleiman, the former governor alleged that the action was carried out by the state police command at the directive of the state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

He called on Buhari and the Police IG, Ibrahim K. Idris, to call the state police commissioner to order, in the interest of peace in the state, Tribune reports.
