Opposition blackmailing me – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday led other leaders of the All Progressives Congress to Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, in a bid to ensure that the party’s candidate, Kayode Fayemi, emerges winner at Saturday’s governorship election.

Mr Buhari appealed to Ekiti voters to cast their votes for Mr Fayemi on Saturday to secure their future and ensure the development of the state.

The president, while addressing a huge crowd of APC supporters, said Ekiti people should be wary of the blackmail against his person regarding the herdsmen and farmers clash.

Hundreds of people have been killed in several states due the violence, and largely despite security presence. Some of the states most affected by the violence are Plateau, Benue and Taraba.

“They blackmailing me, saying I have not done anything about the farmers/Fulani herdsmen clashes because I am a Fulani man,” the president said.

“But this is a cheap blackmail. We are doing everything to curtail the situation, and provide a lasting solution to the problem.”

Mr Buhari was apparently referring to the campaign stunts of the Peoples Democratic Party, branding the APC’s federal government as irresponsive to the herdsmen/farmers clashes.

Ekiti State led a couple of states in the enactment of the anti-open grazing laws, which had been criticised by the federal government.

Ayo Fayose, the Ekiti State Governor, had also been frontal in accusing the president of allowing the killings to continue, citing his ethnic origin as a major factor.

Mr Buhari said the allegation against him was untrue and a cheap blackmail.
