Buhari has abandoned Governance for Foreign Interests, Political Persecution – Fayose



Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to pay more attention to security and economic issues affecting Nigeria, rather than focusing on issues of concern to other countries as well as the persecution of perceived political enemies.

This was as he described Buhari’s condemnation of Sunday’s terrorist attack on the Grand Bassam Resort in Cote D’Ivoire as hypocritical and demonstration of insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians.

The Governor, who admitted that terror attacks anywhere in the world is condemnable, said; “If President Buhari could afford to pick his phone and call the Ivorian president, Alassane Ouattara, immediately after the attack, Nigerians must ask the President why he kept mute for days over the Fulani herdsmen massacre of over 300 Agatu people of Benue State, the Mile 12 Lagos killings and wanton destruction of properties among others.”

A statement issued on Tuesday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, quotes the Governor as stating that it was strange for Buhari to more concerned with the killing of 16 people in Cote D’Ivoire when the Fulani herdsmen’s murder over 300 citizens of Nigeria.

He said it was alarming that even when someone of the status of former Senate President, David Mark was attacked by the Fulani herdsmen last Saturday when he went on inspection of the eight communities completely destroyed by the Fulani herdsmen, there was no reaction from the President condemning the terror attack.

According to Fayose, “From all indications, our President has abandoned governance. The only thing going on in the minds of those running the affairs of this country in Abuja is how to entrench themselves in power by crushing anyone perceived as capable of hindering them.

“That is the reason they are using the Department of State Services (DSS) to harass and intimidate us here in Ekiti, under flimsy excuses like investigation members of the State House of Assembly for alleged forgery of tax certificates when the Ekiti State Government, which issued the certificates have not complained to the DSS that its tax certificates were forged by the lawmakers.

“That is also the reason the President keeps showing his anger against Nnamdi Kanu and his Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) agitators while the same President has failed to approach the economy and insecurity, especially the Fulani herdsmen menace with the same level of anger.

“Even when their own Information Minister, Lai Mohammed has told Nigerians that the economy has gone out of the hands of the President, they keep using anti-corruption fight to persecute opposition elements both in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and their own party, All Progressives Congress (APC), forgetting that fighting corruption is not a substitute for putting food on the table of Nigerians.

“The President must therefore be made to realise that Nigerians are suffering, with price of foodstuffs skyrocketing. The economy is in comatose, Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen are killing people. President Buhari must learn to begin to cry over Nigeria’s problems first before going to other countries to cry over their problems for them.”

INEC broke Nigerians’ Trust with failure to e-transmit results – Laolu Akande



Laolu Akande, media aide to the former Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has said that the failure of INEC to electronically transmit the results of the last presidential and National Assembly elections has broken the trust of Nigerians in the electoral body.

He said, “It is important to establish something we cannot basically run away from. INEC came out of this election as a damaged good. There is no doubt about that. INEC itself set up a standard. INEC determined the guidelines. INEC committed to the people of Nigeria that this is how we are going to declare the result of the election.

“In fact, the Chairman of INEC went abroad and said, ‘What we are going to do is that this results, when we get it, we would put it on our IReV in real-time.

“Now guess what? When it was time for INEC to fulfill its own guidelines – for certain reasons, we could talk about that-  INEC failed to do what it said it would do. Now it is right that if you look at the law, and I think the judges also have affirmed that INEC has not really broken the law. But INEC has broken the trust of the Nigerian people.”

“it’s a problem for political legitimacy for people that came out of that system,” adding that INEC set itself up but couldn’t deliver its promise.
there is a lot of distrust. INEC is responsible for that.”

Inexperienced Boy Who Had Never Worked Anywhere Owns A Private Jet Under Buhari’s Administration – Former Emir of Kano, Sanusi

The former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), who stated this in a video message in Hausa

The 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II has slammed former President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

He said Buhari treated the economy without recourse to experts’ advice.

According to Daily Trust, the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), who stated this in a video message in Hausa, said that some ”sycophants” that surrounded Buhari, exploited the system, bought dollars at N400 and sold at N540, adding that an “inexperienced boy” owned a jet under the past administration.

He said borrowing had crippled Nigeria’s economy, urging the citizens to be patient with the current administration led by President Bola Tinubu, the report added.

“The last eight years, Nigeria led a false life, the government borrowed from within and without. About N30 trillion was borrowed from the Central Bank,” he said.

“All the revenue the country generated in the last few years couldn’t service debt. Debt service exceeded 100 per cent. Government borrowed to service debts. No country can grow this way. Time will come when one cannot borrow any more. Additionally there will be nothing to pay debts.

“Those writing, demanding that we speak on the current situation in the country; this is not the right time for me to speak. It was like a driver on the road driving recklessly despite a wise counsel telling him of a crater ahead. What will you tell after plunging the car into the hole?

“People refused to listen to us then. We will only now advise them to be patient. I will never say Tinubu has pushed Nigeria into difficulty. I am not saying he is flawless or flawed. We will speak when he goes astray. The government can’t pay subsidies since it doesn’t have the means.

“If they add tax, we have to pay since borrowing is impossible. If the CBN printed more naira, the dollar would jack up to N1,500. We must suffer. When I was the CBN governor it was N150. Today it is N935
