Buhari Lacks Capacity to Revamp Nigeria’s Ailing Economy, Says Fayose 


By Olakiitan Victor inAdo Ekiti

Ekiti State governor, Mr Peter Ayodele Fayose, has said that the parlous state of the nation’s economy will continue throughout the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari, causing the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government to fail woefully.

He gave this assertion in his address during the thanksgiving service marking the first anniversary of the fifth assembly of the Ekiti State House of Assembly at the Government House Chapel, Ado-Ekiti, on Sunday.

Fayose said he decided to go on solidarity strike with the workers in the state when it dawned on him that the Federal Government had failed and would continue to fail in revamping the nation’s economy. “I am not a prophet of doom, but I must tell you the truth. It is this economic downturn that will pull down the Buhari-led government. Mark my word. The economy will improve, but it will be too late in the life of the Buhari-led government. God is angry with the Buhari-led government. It is shedding the blood of too many innocent people.

“Soldiers would enter the home of poor village people and gun them down in cold blood. There is too much of blood-shedding. Look at what they did to that innocent woman in Kano. I am telling you that God allowed them to get into government so that they would be exposed; so that everyone would see their inability and hypocrisy,” he said. Further details later
