Comedian I Go Dye has reacted to the tear-gassing of governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state who went on a victory walk with his supporters ahead of the July 14 gubernatorial election in his state.
Speaking about the incidence, I Go Dye stated that what Fayose experienced is no different from what peaceful people face on a regular basis when they go on protests against the hardship in the country.
I Go Dye wrote;
“When pensioners protested, this is what they got. When we protested for fuel pump hike, this is what we got. When we protested against bad leadership this is what we got. When we protested on power failure or increase of minimum wage this is what we got. This is a good experience for you and it will serve as a lesson to others, that they should join Nigerians when they face hardship and speak against it, because of corruption and the ills of the political class.
“Please get up, this is just a small thing compared to the injustice and pains that corruption have caused in this country. Oga governor, you are still among those governors that have short-changed some of our youths’s destiny, even the president is not exempted from any of such consequences.
“Until all of us use our respective positions to promote what is right, every citizen of this country can face this kind of situation.”
“I condemn this rally action because it violates the fundamental human right to liberty and I also use this medium to admonish the people of Ekiti State to remain peaceful as they choose who leads them on Saturday.
“What happens to the boys on the street, can happen to anyone. speak up, because our present status doesn’t stop us from questioning our environment.”
