The governor of Ekiti state Ayo Fayose, has numerously hammered on the resignation of President of the federal republic of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari, owing to the state of being in danger and vulnerability of the nation in terms of economic issues and insecurity and the incapability of the president to make changes as he proposed.
The Ekiti state governor went ahead to say; “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.”
The governor points out the fact that corruption has deteriorated between 2016 and 2017 according to the convicting reports of the Transparency International and the recent occurences in the country is not encouraging. One of which is the abduction of more than 100 pupils of the Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state in a declaration issued on the 25th of February, 2018 by his special Assistant on communications and New media, Lere olayinka
Govenor Ayo fasoye goes ahead to say“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 a 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 does 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. ”
The governor of Ekiti state who has taken the matter of the president going for a second term personally, refers to those saying the president should go for a second term as selfish, and that they are disinterested about the issues of Nigeria and no one in his right mind would want the president of Nigeria to be re-elected, and that the fate of the country should not be left in the hands of a clueless individual like President Mohammed Buhari.
'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 N12.06 trillion in 2015 increased by over N10 trillion?
“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 a continuation of a government lacking direction.”
