Fayose reacts to Buhari claims that IG of Poilce disobeyed his order

Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, says he wonders if President Muhammadu Buhari “really knows anything” about happenings in the country. Fayose said this while reacting to Buhari’s comment on Monday that he was not aware Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police, disobeyed his orders.

Shortly after 73 persons were killed in January following clashes between farmers and herdsmen, Buhari asked Idris to relocate to Benue.

But when he visited the state on Monday, the president was told that Idris did not spend up to 24 hours in the state.

In a surprise, Buhari had said:

“I’m not aware that the I-G did not spend 24 hours in the state as directed by me, I am getting to know in this meeting.”

Writing via his Twitter handle, Fayose wondered why the president is learning about the IGP’s alleged disobedience two months after.

He said the comment could mean the president is not aware of happenings around him, “not to talk about Nigeria”.

Fayose wrote: “What manner of a President will give an 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?”

The Inspector General of Police was ordered on January 9, 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, in the wake of a public outcry that greeted the murder of over 70 persons by suspected herdsmen.

However, Mr Idris obeyed the President’s directive, and reportedly left Benue State for Nasarawa State after spending 24 hours in the state, an act which attracted more condemnation from Nigerians even as the presidency failed to reprimand him.

“What I did was to call him and give him the directive. I didn’t know he moved here (Benue State) and didn’t spend … and then moved to Nasarawa. It’s only now that I am knowing that.

But I know I dispatched him here,” the President said.




  1. Mr President is very confused and clueless about governance. It is disheartening to hear him said such nonsense, someone you send on an errand wouldn’t you have expected a feedback from him? that shows how incompetent and lukewarm this government is. I have said before and I am saying again, this country is irredeemable with people like Mr Buhari in governance and whoever is projecting him for 2019 is very heartless and destructive.
