Fayose blasts Nigerians for praising Zuckerberg's t-shirt outfit

06 September 2016, 11:37

Ekiti - Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has berated Nigerians for commending Mark Zuckerberg for wearing a t-shirt during his visit to Nigeria, Daily Post reports.

The governor said Nigerians are hypocritical because whenever he wears a t-shirt in the public, they call him a thug, but were quick to praise the Facebook owner for doing same during his visit to Nigeria.

“Whatever I do, they will condemn. When I wore T-shirt to the House of Assembly, they said I didn’t dress properly. But when the Facebook founder came to Nigeria, wearing T-shirt and jeans, they hailed him. They said he was humble. Hypocrites, that’s what they are.

The governor also spoke on the current economic recession in the country.

He disclosed that he will be going round the local governments to monitor workers to ensure they resumed at their offices.

He said “If your salary is N100 000, know fully now that you are collecting N50 000 all because of the economy recession in the country, what you are buying in market is now times three of the initial price.

“Soon there would be free health care across the state because majority couldn’t afford hospital bill due to the current economy recession.

“LG autonomy is a must and there is no going back on it here in Ekiti because the LG must be allowed to function.

“Because of bad state of the country’s economy, a lot of Nigerians can no longer afford medicare. People are now going to spiritualists to seek treatment for their ailments.

News24 previously reported that the  founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, returned to Nigeria and met with President Muhammmadu Buhari inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja last week according to News24.

The meeting, which was held behind closed-doors, was also attended by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo

Zuckerberg visited Nigeria on Tuesday and Wednesday where he met with technology developers in Lagos.
