Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has said that President
Muhammadu Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC)
duped Nigerians by obtaining their votes by trick, declaring that;
“Everything Buhari and his party promised Nigerians when they were
looking for votes, they have denied and it won’t be a surprise if one
day, Buhari comes out to even deny that he was elected on the platform
The governor described Buhari’s declaration that he would not pay the
N5, 000 stipend he promised to unemployed youths in the country and
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed’s claim that
creation of three million jobs per year was not promised by the APC as
the peak of political 419 that the President and his party represent.
He said; “They have not fulfilled any of the promises they made to
Nigerians. In fact, they have even told us that they never made any
promise. It is close to one year that Buhari assumed office; no single
job has been created. Instead of the three million jobs per year that
they promised, what we have been witnessing is job losses, economic
hardship and budget padding”
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and
New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said it was more worrisome
that President Buhari always choose foreign lands to make major policy
pronouncements, asking whether Buhari has turned himself to Nigeria’s
Diaspora or Online President.
Governor Fayose described President Buhari’s declaration of support
for Palestine and description of Palestinians as his brothers and
sisters that must achieve their desired objectives as a confirmation
of the growing suspicion that the President was interested in Nigeria
becoming a full Islamic State.
He said; “Even though I am a lover of Muslims, I relate with them as I
do with Christians in the State and across the country, but Nigeria
must remain secular and a free nation where its citizens proclaim the
name of Jesus Christ and Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) freely.”
The governor said the moment President Buhari disowned his own
campaign document titled; “My Covenant with Nigerians,” that was
circulated to Nigerians during the electioneering campaign and also
published in national newspapers and posted online on March 16 and 17,
2015, he knew that Nigerians had been that duped.
“Nigerians have now realised that they are inside a ‘One Chance Bus’
because Buhari and his APC have disowned their entire campaign
promises by disowning their campaign document titled; ‘My Covenant
“This document that they disowned in August, last year contained
everything they promised Nigerians and if today, President Buhari
chose faraway Qatar to announce that he won’t pay the N5, 000 promised
unemployed youths and Lai Mohammed is here in Nigeria saying no job
was promised, no one should be surprised.
“Rather, Nigerians can only begin to pray that God, who rescued Daniel
from den of lions will rescue us from this Buhari/APC one chance bus
that we have entered,” he said.
While insisting that no octogenarian must be allowed to rule Nigeria
again, Governor Fayose said the youths of the country must know that
people like Buhari do not have any stake in the future of Nigeria and
those who will not be part of Nigeria of twenty years to come must not
be part of those structuring the future of the country.
