Presidential aspirant of the All Progressives
Congress (APC), Sam Nda-Isaiah, Wednesday,
debunked rumours of his arrest in Ekiti State.
Dismissing reports that he was arrested on the
orders of Governor Ayodele Fayose, the
presidential aspirant, in a statement issued on
behalf of his campaign organisation by a
spokesman, David Chinda, said that while in
Ado-Ekiti for a session with party delegates,
the Divisional Police Officer in the area where
he was lodged came around with some
policemen on the prompting that the hotel was
about to be invaded by thugs.
He said that the issue was however resolved
between the policemen and Nda-Isaiah’s
security details, comprising operatives of the
Department of State Service, DSS, and
“The Police and DSS personnel attached to Sam
Nda-Isaiah were able to quell the controversy
and clarify the misinformation even without his
knowledge of the issue,” Chinda said.
The presidential aspirant also laid down a six-
point programme to tackle the challenges
arising from declining prices of oil.
He however flayed the administration’s failure
to take precautionary measures as proposed
by him and others in protecting the country
from the developments arising from the crash
in oil prices.
“Over the years, the Federal Government has
earned trillions of naira in revenues but has
consistently failed to make the development of
the non-oil sector a priority to counter our
dependence on the export of crude oil,” Nda-
Isaiah said in a statement issued by a
campaign spokesman, David Chinda.
Nda-Isaiah said that his six point-programme
of action would include the immediate stop of
illegal bunkering operations, full remittance of
oil sale proceeds to the federation account,
tackling corruption headlong and increased
development of the non-oil sector to allow
increased revenue from that source.
