Fayose: Buhari’s Cluelessness Now More Glaring

 ……Reiterates call for President’s resignation

Governor Ayodele Fayose of The Ekiti State has reiterated his call

for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari, describing the

present insecurity and economic problems in the country as evidence of

the President’s cluelessness and inability to steer the ship of the


The governor said; “For a President that was elected because he

promised to fight corruption and clear the Northeast of the Boko Haram

insurgents within three months, the signs that he must take a bow and

return home are clear even more than crystal.”

In a statement issued on Saturday, Fayose said latest

events in the country, especially the abduction of over 100 pupils of

the Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State and the

Transparency International (TI) damning report revealing that the

perception of corruption in Nigeria worsened between 2016 and 2017,

further vindicated his position before the 2015 presidential election

that President Muhammadu Buhari lacked the required capacity to govern

a diverse and complex nation like Nigeria.

He said; “President Buhari promised Nigerians that he will bring back

the missing Chibok Girls and defeat Boko Haram within three months.

After more than 32 months in office, Boko Haram is still killing

Nigerians, with herdsmen also on killing spree.

“Painfully, the same Boko Haram they claimed to have defeated suddenly

became strong enough to kidnap over 100 students. Now, Nigeria is not

only looking for the remaining Chibok Girls, another over 100 innocent

students have joined, this is unacceptable!

“Funny enough, a few days ago, the President called on all Nigerians

to be prepared to pay the ‘ultimate price’ for the progress and unity

of the nation and I wish to ask him what other price he wants

Nigerians to pay.

“Already, Nigerians are sacrificing their lives by getting killed

while seeking what to eat. Some have even committed suicide! Yet, the

same President who is enjoying all the benefits of his office is

calling on Nigerians to forgo personal pleasures and pay the ultimate

price. ”

Governor Fayose, who described those urging President Buhari to seek

reelection as selfish people whose do not have the interests of

Nigerians at heart, added that no right thinking Nigerian would pray

to have the fate of the country in the hands of a clueless individual

like President Buhari for another four years.

When President Buhari mounts the campaign podium, what will he tell

Nigerians? Will he tell Nigerians that corruption and insecurity has

not worsened than it was in 2015? Will the President say that

Nigerians deserve to be buying petrol that they were buying at N86 per

litre in 2015 at N180 now?

“Is President Buhari going to justify that within 30 months, Nigeria’s

debt that was N12.06trn in 2015 increased by over N10trn?

“Fact is that Nigeria is under a rudderless federal government.

Everything is now upside down, with everywhere in the country becoming

insecure. What Nigerians expect in a situation like this is a clean

break from this calamitous government and new breath of life, not

continuation of a government lacking a direction.”
