Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, has again opened his mouth to take a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government as well as his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governor, who spoke on Sunday, June 5, at a thanksgiving service to commemorate the first anniversary of the Fifth Ekiti State House of Assembly at the Government House Chapel, Ado Ekiti, revealed that the poor state of the country’s economy will lead to the collapse of President Buhari’s administration.
Fayose said the economic situation will linger all through the administration of Buhari, and expressed optimism that, the APC-led federal government will fail in finding solace to the current economic woes.
Recall that the governor, who presently owe state workers’ salaries, promised to go on a solidarity strike with the aggrieved civil servants.
The statement which sparked reactions from concerned Nigerians, was later explained in a statement issued by Stephen Gbadamosi, Special Assistant on Media to the Speaker, Kola Oluwawole, claiming that Fayose made the remark after he was convinced that the Federal Government had failed in restoring the country’s economy and would continue to fail in future endeavors.
Gbadamosi said: “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.”
