APC Youths Caution Fayemi’s Wife Over Derogatory Comments, Says Ekiti People Deserve Respect

 

Kayode-Fayemi1

Some youths in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, on

Wednesday, cautioned wife of the immediate past governor of Ekiti

State and Minister of Solid Minerals, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, on the

alleged derogatory remark on the people of the State, saying “Ekiti

people deserve length of respect and act of public dancing should not

becloud her moral consciousness.”

 

The youths, under the aegis of Ekiti APC Youths Congres (EAYC) said

the noble indigenes of the fountain of knowledge cannot continue to

watch while their heritage being trampled upon and rubbished on

political stances.

 

The statement, jointly signed by the Convener, Mr Tope Ogunkuade and

Secretary, Comrade Tunji Adeleye, and made available to news men

online, read in part; “The Splash, a media outfit, on Tuesday reported

that Erelu Bisi Fayemi described Ekiti people as ‘Mari, Maje.’ On

Wednesday, we read her rejoinder, but not convincing enough.

 

“Firstly, we want to strongly disagree with Her Excellency that Ekiti

people are not what she called. No, and never shall we be.

 

“Again, we want to reject the purported rejoinder written by one

Oyebode Olayinka, saying the first lady didn’t call Ekiti people

‘Juice lickers,’ on the ground that such sensitive issue cannot and

must not be reacted to on mere social media.

 

“Even though we are of the APC, we cannot keep silent when our people

are being roundly insulted our by anyone irrespective of party

affiliation.

 

“Most importantly, it is a known fact that Erelu Bisi Fayemi’s

overbearing attitude contributed to the collapse of her husband’s

defeat and downfall of the APC in Ekiti State.

 

“Therefore, we can’t imagine her person allegedly reacting to such

sensitive issue of public concern on social media after she has said

posts on the same medium should not be taken serious. How sincere

should Ekiti now take her remorseful rejoinder,” the youths asked.

 

The youths also frowned at the utterances referenced to the former

first lady, that reads, “My phones stopped ringing after my husband

lost election in Ekiti; started buzzing again after he got appointed

as minister. Mari, maje ti poju l’Ekiti,” and x-rayed her rejoinder as

flimsy as her utterances.

 

They said the former first lady never acted as a good leader to Ekiti

women fold when her husband was in government, adding that, “as far as

Ekiti is concerned, morally and academically, dancing was never a

celebrated virtue.

 

“You don’t need anybody to analyse a woman who boldly said what lies

ahead of women nowadays in politics goes beyond domestic and

matrimonial obligations, before you know she is not well cultured,

primarily as a wife and also a mother in a home.

 

“Dancing round the street like a ‘clubie’ is not a virtue. And

speaking queen English like ‘the white’ doesn’t connote having moral

standard within.

 

“It is therefore on these notes that our group want to call on the

former first lady, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, to publicly apologise to the

entirety of Ekiti people, both within and outside the country, if

truly she was quoted out of context as claimed.”
