AGAIN! Fayose attacks Buhari: A Man Over 70 Lacks Ideas to Rule Us

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State is back of President Muhammadu Buhari matter again. But this time he said his criticisms of Mr President was not borne out of his hatred for him but out of his conviction that at 73, Buhari was not strong enough to lead a complex country like Nigeria.

Fayose said, “People say that I abuse Buhari, I am not abusing him because he is like my grandfather but I know the history. Eighty percent of people that voted for Buhari in the South-West did not know him. They are between 18 and 40. They voted because they wanted change desperately and I agree with them.

"He left government 32 years ago so they did not experience his rule. 

“Today, the PDP is no longer in government so they should stop blaming the PDP. They told us that dollars would become one to one with the naira. But where is that today? The regime of fuel subsidy is gone and we now have food subsidy. Queues are back at petrol stations. 

Whatever I say is divine. The next thing to happen will be the removal of the Kogi State governor. I have not lost a battle in my life and when I lost one, I came back to win.

“We have never had it so bad like in the last 12 months; electricity has gone to zero and we no longer have light in our houses. I am here to tell Nigerians that we are in the wrong direction because you cannot give what you don’t have. There is a time to retire because of the diminishing return on the functionality of the brain. At 75, my mother can do little.”

Governor Fayose, who spoke at an event organised by NUJ in Oyo State, also criticised the anti-corruption war of the Buhari administration, describing it as biased.
