Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, has described the raging controversies between the Presidency and the National Assembly over the 2016 Budget as a confirmation of his position of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ineptitude, saying, “Nigerians should expect more blunders like this until they send Buhari back to Daura in 2019.”

The governor, who said it was now obvious that the President and his All Progressives Congress (APC) only wanted power desperately without the wherewithal to govern, added that, “I warned Nigerians of the consequences of electing an octogenarian as president and with the international embarrassment that this budget crisis has become, I have been vindicated.”

In a statement issued on Tuesday, by his Special Assistant on Pubic Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said: “It is obvious that there is total disconnection between the President and his cabinet members as many of the ministers don’t even have access to him probably because the President spend most of his time resting as a result of his old age.”

He said: “The reality is that the President is challenged by age, exposure and ability. He did not read the budget proposal that he presented to the National Assembly and this should be a lesson for those who clamoured for a Buhari’s presidency that no man can give what he does not have.

“The question is; can a minister present supplementary budget to the National Assembly and can the National Assembly act on budget proposal submitted by a minister?

“It is shameful that after blaming former President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for close to one year, the presidency is now blaming the National Assembly for its inability to prepare a common budget.”

The governor commended the National Assembly for exposing the lies and hypocrisy of the presidency, saying it was shameful that President Buhari and his men could blame the National Assembly for their incompetence.

He called on the National Assembly not to succumb to blackmail and intimidation from the Presidency, saying that the way and manner the Presidency was going about blackmailing and intimidating other arms of government, especially the judiciary should worry lovers of democracy and good governance in the country.

The governor, who declared that Nigeria will no longer be ruled by octogenarians, said, “Nigerians must have now come to terms that I warned them that Buhari is too old to govern a country like Nigeria.”


  1. Let him make blunders pls. You and ur ally were there 4 more than 6 yrs with all ur experiences as u make us to know. Where did your ship sail us to. Abject poverty, corruption, embezelments . Mr Fayose pls make Ekiti great then we will know you are the next president. Fraudster is your name!.

  3. This is pure I must be relevant and reckoned with... at all cost. We are waiting for how Fayose would turn Ekiti into a Dubai in Nigeria. He want to build an airport in Ekiti, is that the priority for the Ekitis? then who is clueless? Airport or achieving food security, or the disgraceful stomach infrastructure should continue? Vagabond-in-Power. in Po

  4. Ayomi! U are 150% right, that Daura camel is indeed old and lack the mental capacity to govern this animal farm called Nigeria.
    Daddy, U are on point. All correct!

    1. You've now confirmed that you're indeed insane like your mentors e.g fayose, ffk, aribisala, metuh, GEJ including your father!!!

    2. Because he did not support you,you turn around to abuse his father...get out of here please..

  5. Tell us what u have done for Ekiti state. Face it state frst.

  6. Even fayose speaks out of tone yet truth falls out from his mouth...Buhari is not fit to rule Nigeria

  7. I think this is the only thing Ekiti people should expect from their governor

  8. Stupid, u aŕ thnklss nd u ar not dserved to be governor. You ar one of thè enemies of nigeria. @Faýose

  9. This Onye ohi, EL-KATOSKI or EL-MATORIOUS of an idiot is here again spewing opprobrium everywhere!!!
    This MORON (Who's only vocabulary is to call his grandfather MUMU) is not fit to comment on this forum, as he has no meaningful contribution to give that could move this country forward. From his comments, he is one of those deluded youths who's stock-in-trade is to hang out daily on social media forum to earn crumbs and pittance from their puppeteers by standing at “attention” to responding an countering any comment or publication against their benefactors. This same lad who goes by the acronym EL-MATOSKY or EL-MATORIOUS depending on which social forum he surfaces, is a known IMPOSTOR, claiming to hold a phantom Master's Degree in Computer Science (Can you imagine how jobless one could be and not make meaningful use of his alleged degree, at least he could open a kiosk at computer village to practice his trade), but instead he is caught always loitering around social sites with “gun corked” ready to shoot at sight, anyone who comments against his political benefactors etc.

    Those who know him on this platform will agree that he is out to “do no good” and is a deranged, disillusioned and mentally imbalanced lad that needs urgent medical attention.

    1. Hmmm! All this grammar for El? I wish U have a name. IDIOT! Rakumi!
