Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of putting the future of Nigeria at risk through his actions.
The was quoted as saying this in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, on Sunday.
“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,” he said.
The governor also said the release of N350bn by the Federal Government for capital projects will not help the Nigerian economy considering the challenges facing the country.
He called on the government to stop deceiving Nigerians and admit that Nigeria under Buhari had moved from economic recession to economic depression.
Fayose also called on the President to realise that Nigerians would not measure his government on the basis of what his predecessors failed to do, but on what he did or neglected to do between May 29, 2016 and May 29, 2019.
He accused the President of discouraging foreign investment in the country by calling Nigerians corrupt 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?”
He said instead of blaming his predecessors for the state of the nation, Buhari should focus on solving the country’s problems.
“No nation has ever reached greatness by their leaders engaging in blame game, nepotism and vengeance as being done by the president and his All Progressives Congress government,” he said.
He added, “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.”
