Buhari is Nigeria’s major problem-Fayose

18 September 2016, 20:48

Ado Ekiti - Gov Ayodele Fayose has described President Mohammadu Buhari as the major problem of Nigeria which Nigerians must solve.

Fayose in a statement issued on Sunday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said it was President Buhari that went to foreign countries to de-market Nigeria by calling all Nigerians thieves and dishonest people

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.”

President Buhari has de-marketing Nigeria,” by depicting her citizens before the international community as dishonest. “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 vindictiveness?”

According to  Fayose, Nigerians will not measure his government on the basis of what his predecessors failed to do, but on what he did or failed 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 with governance, stop his blame game, and be innovative.

“No nation has ever reached greatness by their leaders engaging in blame game, nepotism and vengeance as being done by President Buhari and his All Progressives Congress (APC) government,” he 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 said the federal government should stop deceiving Nigerians with stories of injecting funds into the economy, given that the economic problems facing the country had gone beyond talks of injecting N350 billion into the economy through execution of capital projects.

“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?” he said.

“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.”
