Former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has said Nigerians would always remember that President Muhammadu Buhari ruined the country economically, promoted nepotism and threatened the unity of the country.
Fayose said “apart from the civil war era, the country has never been so insecure to the extent that our military men, including retired top officers are killed so recklessly.Thousands of Nigerians have been killed by herdsmen and the President has done nothing.”
Through his media aide, Lere Olayinka today, Fayose said “At this time in 2014, a bag of rice was N7,000 but the same bag of rice is over N20, 000 now while other food items are also beyond the reach of ordinary Nigerians.”
He said that Nigerians will never fail to forget that the price of petrol was N85.50 per litre when he came in but increased to N145 upon his arrival and that he destroyed the economy of the country to the extent that dollar that exchanged for N197 to N1 is now over N360.
He said “Most importantly, Nigerians will forever remember President Buhari’s flagrant disobedient to rule of law, selective application of justice, use of state apparatus like the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Police and Department of State Services (DSS) to oppress his perceived political enemies and treatment of other arms of government, especially the judiciary with contempt.
“Particularly, the people of Benue, Plateau, Taraba, Adamawa, Ekiti and other States will remember the President for keeping silent whe herdsmen were killing them, raping their wives and destroying their
farmlands,” Fayose said.
The former governor assured that “In February 2019, God will deliver Nigerians from President Buhari and his afflictions on the country.
He said; “With unemployment increasing from 17.6 million in 2017 to 20.9 million in 2018, and the President himself admitting his own failure and promising more hardships next year, in other countries of the world, he would have resigned instead of seeking to continue to impoverish the country and its people with his directionless approach to governance.
However, whether he chooses to take the most honourable path of resigning or not, Nigerians will definitely remove him with their votes and set themselves free in February 2019.”
