Ekiti State government has issued a warning to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against undue politicization of security of lives and property in the State, saying that this will do no one any good.

Sam Oluwalana, the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Kayode Fayemi on Inter-party Relations, gave the warning on Saturday while speaking with journalists in Ado-Ekiti.

He appealed to the party to stay away from comments that could portray it as mocking the dead, insisting that lives should be considered sacred.

NAN reports that Oluwalana was reacting to a statement earlier issued by the PDP, criticizing the APC-led government over the recent spate of insecurity in Ekiti.

Mr Raphael Adeyanju, the PDP Publicity Secretary in the state, expressed grief that Ekiti, hitherto regarded as the most peaceful state in the South-West region, had turned into a haven of bandits and political thugs.

Adeyanju had said, “Time has come for stakeholders in the state to confront Gov. Kayode Fayemi and ask him whether or not he has an understanding with these marauding bandits not to touch them.”

In his reaction, however, Oluwalana insisted that PDP’s action was capable of portraying it as mocking the dead.

He said, “For PDP to have politicized this type of issue, where life was lost, showed that it’s irresponsible and lazy. The issue of insecurity is one that affects the entire country, and Ekiti isn’t an exemption.

“I want to say that the governor is working hard to secure the lives of citizens and we should all join hands with him to ensure that criminals are exposed, rather than making political comments capable of heating up the system.”
