Ado Ekiti - Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has accused President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) of exhibiting the peak of political 419 by making promises without fulfilling them.
In a statement issued on Tuesday by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said APC deceived Nigerians to get their votes in the last election by promising to create 3 million jobs per year, yet the president had “not created a single job”.

“President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) duped Nigerians by obtaining their votes by trick.
"Everything Buhari and his party promised Nigerians when they were looking for votes, they have denied and it won’t be a surprise if one day, Buhari comes out to even deny that he was elected on the platform of APC.
“Buhari’s declaration that he would not pay the N5 000 stipend he promised to unemployed youths in the country and minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed’s claim that creation of three million jobs per year was not promised by the APC as the peak of political 419 that the President and his party represent.
“They have not fulfilled any of the promises they made to Nigerians. In fact, they have even told us that they never made any promise.
"It is close to one year that Buhari assumed office; no single job has been created. Instead of the three million jobs per year that they promised, what we have been witnessing is job losses, economic hardship and budget padding”, the statement reads.
