Ekiti leader attacks Buhari again, says government likes to distract Nigerians with BH headlines
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state, who is known for openly firing verbal missiles at the APC-led government has this time dropped a grenade.
Fayose in a press statement signed by his aide, Lere Olayinka, stated that what Nigerians are interested in from the APC-led government is the defeat of hunger and untold hardship plaguing the country and not ‘recycled’ stories of Boko Haram insurgents aimed at ‘diverting attention’
He added that it has become predictable that whenever Nigerians lament on the pains and sufferings they are going through, the Nigerian government will come up with stories like “We have captured Sambisa forest,” “20 Chibok girls found,” “20 Chibok girls found,” “$1 billion found in Mr A, B or C bedroom,” all to remove the attention of Nigerians from the ravaging hunger in the nation at the moment.
In his words;
It is painful that Nigeria under President Mohammadu Buhari has become directionless either due to the cluelessness of the president or his old age that has foisted a purposeless leadership on the country. He said; “This year’s Christmas is the worse in the history of Nigeria. People cannot afford to celebrate and enjoy themselves due to the hardship caused by the APC government.To make matters worse, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) also created artificial scarcity of cash, such that people could not access their hard earned money in the banks as most banks in the country do not have cash to pay their customers.
Like I have maintained, the main issue confronting Nigerians now is hunger and hunger does not speak the language of political propaganda that is being used by the APC led federal government. It is therefore no longer about diversionary news, it is about preventing Nigerians from dying of hunger.
The Ekiti strongman continued;
The only solution to the myriad of problems facing the country is for those holding power in Abuja to face the sad reality that it was the hard stance of the president, his statements against Nigeria and its people both at home and abroad coupled with his demonstration of hatred against some sections of the country and desperation to crush his perceived enemies that led us to where we are today. “It was the president that went to foreign countries to de-market Nigeria by calling all Nigerians thieves and dishonest people. He was the one who created atmosphere of economic and political instability in the country by his acts of nepotism and vindictiveness? “Therefore, for the country to move forward, the President must change his attitude from a vindictive military dictator to a civilian president of all Nigerians.
Things were never like this at any time in the history of Nigeria apart from 1984.They are not running the economy of Nigeria by the open participation of Nigerians but by some cabal, who see themselves as superior to others. By their failure to involve those who know more than them, they have succeeded in creating unemployment instead of three million jobs that they promised Nigerians per year. They have taken Nigeria back to the Stone Age and it will take several years for the country to recover, if it will ever recover.
Speaking about 2017, Fayose said;
With every means of livelihood of the common people taken away from them, free; fair and credible elections becoming a mirage, Nigerians must begin to speak out now before the country is completely destroyed by this directionless federal government.
