Gov Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to resign because he has failed Nigerians who voted him into power.
Saying that the exchanged rate is now $1 for N500 under Buhari, Fayose lamented that there “is unprecedented hunger in the land” and that Nigerians were being killed in Southern Kaduna and other places.
“It is better for the president to resign because he appears not to have capacity for positivity. If all the presidents that ruled before Buhari had behaved like he is behaving now, he himself will be in jail.”
The governor said this while reacting to media report on his telephone conversation with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, that was published by Sahara Reporters.
He accused the Department of State Service of recording telephone conversations of Nigerians perceived as critics of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s All Progressives Congress government.
Specifically, he accused the DSS of editing the conversations and leaking same to Sahara Reporters, which according to him, had now become the official propaganda platform of the Federal Government.
Fayose, who said he was not bothered by the new antics, advised the federal government to provide food for Nigerians and save the lives of those that were being killed in Southern Kaduna and other places, “Rather than sitting down and be monitoring peoples phones.”
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor said, “If the President and his hatchet men in the DSS, EFCC and other federal government agencies do not know what to do other than to record phone conversations of their perceived political foes, they should just resign and save the country from this harrowing experience.”
He described the DSS recording telephone conversations of Nigerians and leaking them to Sahara Reporters to publish as the height of the political rascality, manipulation, oppression, suppression and irresponsibility by agents of the federal government that are trying so hard to cover up the crimes they perpetrated against the people of Rivers State.
“They should even go beyond taping of my lines and come to live with me in Ekiti government house so that they can do per second live recordings of whatever I say because in the year 2017, by the grace of God, I will still say more without apology,” he said.
Fayose said for the first time since democracy returned to the country in 1999, Nigerians were celebrating Christmas and new year with hunger and sufferings beyond measure.
