Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of “destroying everything that makes Nigeria a country”.
Fayose, who alleged that the president has created economic and political instability through “nepotism and vindictiveness, asked Nigerians to stand up to be counted in the crusade to save the country.
He accused Buhari of using negative utterances to scare away foreign investors, and advised him to be “innovative with governance and stop his blame game”.
“Our president, through his actions and inactions is destroying everything that makes Nigeria a country and well-meaning Nigerians must stand-up to be counted in the crusade to save the country from going under,” Fayose said in a statement issued on his behalf by Lere Olayinka, his spokesman.
“Nigerians must begin to speak out now before the country is totally destroyed by this one-man government, which does not see any idea coming from those perceived as opposed to the government as worthy of consideration.
“President Buhari went to foreign countries to de-market Nigeria by calling all Nigerians thieves and dishonest people. Which foreign investor will invest his money in a country of dishonest people? Who made investors to leave Nigeria if not President Buhari, who created atmosphere of economic and political instability in the country by his acts of nepotism and vindictiveness?”
“President Buhari has not only taking Nigeria to economic recession, he has moved the country to economic depression and nepotism has prevented him from engaging the best hands in the All Progressives Congress (APC),” he said.
“No nation has ever reached greatness by their leaders engaging in blame game, nepotism and vengeance as being done by President Buhari and his APC government.
“Like I said before, the main issue confronting Nigerians now is hunger and hunger does not speak the language of politics. It is therefore no longer about politics; it is about preventing hunger from killing Nigerians.”
“The federal government should stop deceiving Nigerians with stories of injecting funds into the economy,” he said.
“The economic problems facing the country has gone beyond talks of injecting N350 billion into the economy through execution of capital projects.
“If they inject even N500 billion into the economy by paying contractors executing federal government capital projects, how does that affect the price of rice and other food items? How does it affect the price of basic drugs?
“Instead of unsustainable measures, what President Buhari should do is to bring economic experts in the country together not-minding their political and ethnic affiliations so that they can proffer lasting solutions to the country’s economic problems.”
