Ado Ekiti - Gov Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has urged Nigerians to send President Muhammadu Buhari back to his hometown of Daura in Katsina State in 2019 if he decides to re contest.
Fayose in a statement issued on his behalf by his Special Assistant on Pubic Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said the controversy trailing the 2016 budget has shown that the President is clueless and incompetent.
He said Nigerians should expect more blunders like this until they send Buhari back to Daura in 2019.
He said he warned Nigerians of the consequences of electing an octogenarian as President

Fayose noted that he has been vindicated with the current controversy over the 2016 Budget.
Fayose also alleged that Buhari’s ministers do not have access to him, saying the president is challenged by the responsibility that goes with his office.
“Nigerians must have now come to terms that I warned them that Buhari is too old to govern a country like Nigeria.”
“Nigerians should expect more blunders like this until they send Buhari back to Daura in 2019.
“It is obvious that there is total disconnection between the President and his cabinet members as many of the ministers don’t even have access to him probably because the President spend most of his time resting as a result of his old age.
“The reality is that the President is challenged by age, exposure and ability. He did not read the budget proposal that he presented to the National Assembly and this should be a lesson for those who clamoured for a Buhari’s presidency that no man can give what he does not have.
“The question is; can a minister present supplementary budget to the National Assembly and can the National Assembly act on budget proposal submitted by a minister?
“It is shameful that after blaming former President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for close to one year, the presidency is now blaming the National Assembly for its inability to prepare a common budget.”
