The Governor of Ekiti State, South-West Nigeria, Ayodele Fayose, has said the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari “has lost all moral right to continue in office.”
Fayose, made the statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, in the state capital, Ado-Ekiti, while reacting to recent killings in Benue State by herdsmen.
The Governor said, “This is a killer government. It is shameful that Nigerians are dying daily with Buhari clueless and incompetent to handle the crisis.
“It is beyond dispute that the Buhari administration has lost the battle against insurgency and the Fulani herdsmen. Buhari is helpless as he is reduced to offering condolences on a daily basis.
“Nigerians are dying on a daily basis. Innocent souls are being wasted by herdsmen and the Buhari administration has lost all moral right to continue in office.
“Why is he still sitting in office? Doing what, if I may ask,” the Governor said.
According to Fayose, the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan, a Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP-led government, was a golden era compared with the APC government.
His words: “The same Jonathan administration era is now looking like the golden age of security of lives and properties in Nigeria.
“At no period since 1999 has life been this cheap. Life has become nasty, brutish, and short under the Buhari administration.”
Speaking about the issue of controversial court judgments between judges and the Buhari administration, Fayose said:
“The situation is getting so bad that we do not know whether the constitution of the country has been unofficially suspended.
“Nigerians have been unlucky with Buhari as president. He is too old, too analogue, too incompetent, too clueless and is not ready to admit and yield for a competent leader. This country has never had it this bad. Gradually, Buhari is becoming a maximum ruler,” he said.
