Lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Sen. Shehu Sani has condemned Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose, over his criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari’s appointments so far.
In a statement issued on Monday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose accused Buhari’s style of governance since his emergence on May 29, 2015, as one that portrays him as a president of Northern Nigeria only. He stated that it was wrong for President Buhari to have made 31 major appointments and picked only seven from the South while 24 were from the North.
However, responding to Fayose’s outburst, Sani said in a statement on Tuesday that although everyone has a right to freedom of expression, Fayose’s recent utterances are nothing but “divisive, inciting, provocative, and mischievous tantrums against President Muhammadu Buhari.”
Read full statement below:
I recognize the fundamental rights of Ekiti State Governor to freedom of expression.
I unreservedly condemn his divisive, inciting, provocative and mischievous tantrums and invectives against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Ekiti Governor is a relic of the old order, he represents the old Nigeria of waste, of hollow ritual of noise and nuisance.
Fayose is a man suffering from political depression in the aftermath of the defeat of his patriarch Goodluck Jonathan. He is a hallucinating Man of the ancient, yet to come to terms with the realities of a new dawn and new Nigeria.
The Ekiti governor is a man on the loose ready to use stones, sticks and any object to inflict harm and to be noticed.
Fayose failed to stop the election of President Muhammadu Buhari by the use of false, misleading and subversive propaganda laced with lies and deceit and now resort to firing arrows of hate, smear and distortions.
Fayose is a glorified tout, deficient in morals, character and courteousness.
Fayose’s imprudent utterances are nothing but an attempt to incite Nigerians from the South against those from the North.
Ekiti Governor’s utterances are unbecoming of a state Governor who should symbolize, exemplify and personify national unity and peace.
Fayose’s utterances are farts from a rotten road side Beans meal.
The constitution of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria guarantees all Nigerians the right to freely express their opinion and criticize the operations of Government. The Ekiti Governor is simply on a toxic smear campaign against PMB.
President Muhammadu Buhari is not a ‘northern president’:He is a Nigerian president out to correct the wrong of the erstwhile sectional president whom the Fayoses of Nigeria supported and collaborated with.
Fayose is a weeping and whipping boy of the dead PDP.
I call on the APC Governors to appropriately respond to their peer, Fayose and return him to the cesspit pit, where he rightly belongs.

Focus On Reducing Poverty, Not 2023 Elections – Peter Obi
Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has called on his fellow politicians to put issues of 2023 aside and focus on how to rescue the country from the current economic crisis.
Obi said that solving the economic problems of Nigeria was more important than political permutations geared towards the next general elections.
The former Anambra State Governor stated during an appearance on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
He expressed that the next election has no impact on people’s current livelihoods.
Obi also blamed President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration for not adequately preparing Nigerians for the impact of COVID-19, stating the monies borrowed by this government were not properly put to use.
“Every other country is discussing the recession and how to pull their people out of poverty.
“So what we should do now is to concentrate on the monetary and fiscal policies to start pulling people out of poverty,” Obi said.
Recession: Nigeria Is Broke, Can’t Afford 2021 Budget – Atiku
Former Vice-President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has expressed that the Federal Government should reconsider the 2021 budget owing to the recession.
Nigeria officially entered into its worst economic recession in 33 years after the nation recorded a GDP contraction of 3.62 percent in the third quarter of 2020.
He stated that Nigeria is broke and cannot afford the luxurious items in the N13.08 trillion budget proposal.
Atiku in a Twitter thread on Sunday stated that COVID-19 only complicated an existing economic problem.
Atiu went on to express that had President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration listened to advice, the recession could have been avoided.
“We could have avoided this fate by a disciplined and prudent management of our economy.”
“This could have been avoided had this administration taken heed to the patriotic counsel given by myself and other well-meaning Nigerians on cutting the cost of governance, saving for a rainy day, and avoiding profligate borrowing,” Atiku said.
He further said that now is not the time to trade blames but to focus on ways to manage the situation and called on Buhari’s government to “swallow its pride, and accept its limitations, so that they can open their minds to ideas, without caring who the messenger is.”
