Abuja - Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has lashed out at President Muhammadu Buhari over his handling of the country since his taking up his seat in office, Naij has reported.
Despite previous vows to stop attacking the First Citizen, Fayose has lambasted Buhari, going as far as saying that God's anger towards him has led to unnecessary bloodshed across the country.
Speaking against the backdrop of political violence that erupted across Rivers State over the weekend, Fayose stated that Buhari stood by and looked over the weekend's events, doing nothing to ease the situation.
In addition, the Governor stated that power belonged to God and that no individual should abuse the power bestowed upon them, no matter how high their position in society may be.
“I am telling you the truth. Power doesn’t come from anywhere. God rules in the affairs of men. Oppressing, bringing and cutting people down, taking their blood, God is angry. The way this government is taking people down, God is angry. God isn’t happy. Go to Rivers, they kill people.

“Go to Akwa Ibom, they kill people. Go to Bayelsa, they kill people, incarcerate innocent people. God is angry with Buhari. You can’t continue to take the blood of the innocent. Look at my predictions for the year 2016 for Nigeria, everything has come to pass.
“This is a different ball game. He that will take me, he that will go against me must first of all defeat God. If these were the kind of violence that greeted Buhari’s election would he ever be president?” Fayose questioned.
Giving his opinion on the possible outcome of the National Economic Council (NEC) retreat in Abuja, Fayose stated that the present economic state of the country is a clear indication of Buhari's lack of technical competence in solving Nigeria's problems.
Governor Fayose has also urged the President to declare a state of emergency in Ekiti State, while sending out a warning that states of emergency imposed in both Rivers and Ekiti might not work.
Speaking on a possible state of emergency being declared in Rivers, Fayose said: “they have been insinuating that too in Ekiti. We have been waiting for them. Power has gone beyond the leaders; power has gone back to the people.”
