President Buhari is Nigeria’s Major Problem – Fayose


Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has described President
Mohammadu Buhari as the major problem of Nigeria that Nigerians must
solve, saying; “Our President, through his actions and inactions is
destroying everything that makes Nigeria a country and well-meaning
Nigerians must stand-up to be counted in the crusade to save the
country from going under.”

The governor said it was President Buhari that went to foreign
countries to de-market Nigeria by calling all Nigerians thieves and
dishonest people, asking; “Which foreign investor will invest his
money in a country of dishonest people? Who made investors to leave
Nigeria if not President Buhari, who created atmosphere of economic
and political instability in the country by his acts of nepotism and

Governor Fayose lamented that “President Buhari has not only taking
Nigeria to economic recession, he has moved the country to economic
depression and nepotism has prevented him from engaging even the best
hands in his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).”

According to a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti on Sunday by his Special
Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the
governor said President Buhari should realise that “Nigerians will not
measure his government on the basis of what his predecessors failed to
do, but on what he does or neglected to do between May 29, 2016 and
May 29, 2019.”

He said with the level of hunger in the country, President Buhari
should rather get serious and be innovative with governance and stop
his blame game, adding that; “No nation has ever reached greatness by
their leaders engaging in blame game, nepotism and vengeance as being
done by President Buhari and his APC government.”

The governor said “Nigerians must begin to speak out now before the
country is totally destroyed by this one-man government, which does
not see any idea coming from those perceived as opposed to the
government as worthy of consideration.

“Like I said before, the main issue confronting Nigerians now is
hunger and hunger does not speak the language of politics. It is
therefore no longer about politics; it is about preventing hunger from
killing Nigerians.”

Governor Fayose, who said the federal government should stop deceiving
Nigerians with stories of injecting funds into the economy, added that
the economic problems facing the country has gone beyond talks of
injecting N350 billion into the economy through execution of capital

“If they inject even N500 billion into the economy by paying
contractors executing federal government capital projects, how does
that affect the price of rice and other food items? How does it affect
the price of basic drugs?

“Instead of unsustainable measures, what President Buhari should do is
to bring economic experts in the country together not-minding their
political and ethnic affiliations so that they can proffer lasting
solutions to the country’s economic problems.”
