Why I continuously criticise Buhari — Fayose

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has explained the reason behind his persistent criticism of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government.

Fayose who described himself as the most senior governor in Nigeria during an interactive forum yesterday in Lagos, said his constant attacks on Buhari was based on his sense of responsibility and was not related to any 2019 presidential aspiration as alleged by critics.

The outspoken governor said linking him to the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ali Sheriff, for the 2019 presidential ticket was an attempt to discredit him.

Fayose while urging those clamouring for a second term for Buhari to have a rethink, said by 2019, the president would have become too old to reign over the affairs of the nation.

He said, “Those promoting Buhari for 2019 should stop. I have told Nigerians that Buhari does not have the capacity now to govern Nigeria.

”What capacity will he display in seven years time? Currently as it stands, the President is challenged by age.”

Fayose said, “Anybody flying the kite of Sheriff and Fayose is the deceit of the highest order. Again, even if it is the Senate, I am not going to contest.

“Nobody contests the office of the Vice President. You can only become the Vice President of Nigeria if God wants you to be.

“May I make it expressly clear that if Ali Modu Sheriff wants to contest as president of Nigeria in 2019, I will not support him. I am a man known for my words of honour. We must operate based on principle if our country is to move forward.”

“This is cheap blackmail orchestrated to give people the impression that I have ambition that is why I am doing all these.

“I am the most senior governor in Nigeria and if I were to be in a party like the APC, they will be celebrating me everyday. They know I am critical of the bad policies of the APC administration.”

You Cannot Benefit From Country You Curse – Shettima Warns Nigerians

Published

Kashim Shettima has warned Nigerians against hauling curses on the country as a result of the hardship, stating that it would be impossible for abusers to benefit from a system they have abused.

He stated that there are a lot of opportunities in Nigeria and therefore urged Nigerians to count their blessings instead of putting the country down through words.

In his words, “Let us count our blessings. Let us not put our country down.

He emphasized that, “It cannot be tales of woes all the time. As bad as things are today and with all the inflation, there are sectors that are doing incredibly well. The health sector is doing very well.

The petroleum sector is doing well. The Agric sector is doing well, for those who are planting cassava.

“People buy it there on the farm. I am not saying that things are easy. The government has come with very tough reforms.

“However, you have to position yourself in the reform. If you go out and say Nigeria is a shitty country, forgive my French, you are going to get shitty results.

The 65th Ordinary Session of the Authority is holding at the Presidential Villa in Abuja where he is expected to pass on the torch to another leader.

The Military leaders of Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso rule out returning to ECOWAS even as President Bola Tinubu leads Heads of State of the 15-member bloc in a Summit in Abuja to persuade them to return.

“Westerners consider that we belong to them and our wealth also belongs to them. They think that they are the ones who must continue to tell us what is good for our states. This era is gone forever; our resources will remain for us and our populations,”
says Burkina Faso’s leader, Capt. Ibrahim Traoré.

“”Our people have irrevocably turned their back on ECOWAS,” Niger’s General Abdourahamane Tiani says.

“The attack on one of us will be an attack on all the other members,” insists Mali’s leader, Col. Assimi Goïta.

The trio signed a confederation treaty on Saturday, underscoring their determination to chart a joint course and exit the bloc which is urging them to return to democratic rule.
