Former Senate President, Ken Nnamani has condemned the incessant criticisms of Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose
Ken Nnamani is the chairman of the Electoral Reform Committee constituted by President Muhammadu Buhari
Nnamani who is currently the chairman of the Electoral Reform Committee constituted by President Muhammadu Buhari made the comment in response to a speech by Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose at the maiden public hearing of the committee on Wednesday, March 23 in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
He criticised Fayose for engaging in a brand of criticism that does not require intelligence to carry out
He added that Fayose’s criticisms lack wisdom and infringed on people’s rights and freedom of association, The Nation reports.
The governor, who was represented by a member of the House of Assembly, Idowu Omotoso, had criticised the committee and called on the chairman to resign on the grounds that he was a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
If this government is actually serious about electoral reform, then the chairman of this committee should resign and allow an independent person take over.Senator Ken Nnamani is a Southeast regional leader of APC and hence incapable of rising above primordial and party sentiments to give us anything different from electoral inconclusiveness that we have at the moment.The only time this country made an attempt at reliable Electoral Reform was during the tenure of President Umaru Yar’Adua who appointed retired Chief Justice Mohammed Uwais as the chairman.This singular move gave the panel credibility, widespread acceptability and massive supports from all over the country and across political divides, Fayose said.
Senator Nnamani responds to this statement by calling it unintelligent.
