Fayose Dares Buhari To Arrest Him, Declares His Readiness To Face Him

Buhari-Fayose

 

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has dared President Muhammadu Buhari to arrest him, insisting the president has not shed his garb of dictatorship.

Speaking on Friday in an interview on The Osasu Show, which was broadcast yesterday on AIT, the governor said: “They say he (Buhari) is coming after me, I am ready”.

Mr. Fayose in the interview, also drew inspiration from the Holy Bible as he quoted from Hebrew 13: 6, saying “it is very clear that because we have God, we fear not what men will do to us”.

The governor, who is one of the most vocal critics of President Buhari and his administration, said everybody can’t belong to the same political party, and that he was entitled to his view.

“You can’t silence everyone”, he maintained.

In the interview, Mr. Fayose questioned the capacity of Mr. Buhari to solve Nigeria’s economic crisis, saying the president was “still in an analogue stage”.

“I am saying it expressly, (that) the president does not understand the economy”, said the Ekiti governor.

“If you understand the economy you can do everything simultaneously without rocking the boat.

“You go out telling the whole world that your country is corrupt, you destroy all your people, and you expect them (foreigners) to do business with your people?

“That is not how to operate”, said Mr. Fayose.

On the anti-corruption war, the Ekiti governor insisted that it was selective and political.

According to him, “When (former Nigerian president) Obasanjo left prison, did he declare his assets?

“The library Obasanjo has today, where did the money come from? His house in Abeokuta, where did the money come from?

“Even Buhari himself declared cattle and mud houses. He said he doesn’t have money. From where did the (presidential) campaign money come from?”

Mr. Fayose said Nigerian leaders weren’t committed to the idea of diversifying the country’s economy.

“Each of them looks forward to another election rather than look forward to the future of the country”, he said.

The governor also identified lack of electricity power and other infrastructure, including lack of capital, as the major factors hindering economic diversification in Nigeria.

“If I want to diversify, for instance, the money I got for last month was N1.3 billion. And my wage bill is N2.6 billion, aside security, electricity, water and basic essential services to the people.

“Do I use this money for diversification at the expense of the people?

“No I can’t!

“So, it is an uphill task. It is not impossible, but it an uphill task.

“My first counsel to the federal government is that they should stop the noise about corruption, and face this economy.

“They should be sincere more about the economy than playing to the gallery”, Governor Fayose said.

He also advised the federal government to make agriculture attractive to farmers all over the country.

    The president is not coming after you. It is the law that will come after you based on the revelations from the probe of how you and Jonathan used the military to bulldoze you into the govt house in Ekiti state.

    Fayose should stop acting as an imbecilic. He should start the diversification theory from his home state. This is a governor who unjustly destroyed hectares of cocoa farm for airstrip when other adjoining states having similar facilities could hardly sustain them. What does he knows about economy? How is Ekiti fearing interms of economic progression and growth. What workable models has his government been able to implement in Ekiti State. Enough of this noise. No one is interested in your arrest. When the time shall come, the appropriate agency will do its job.

      So Fayose can accuse Buhari of dictatorship? Is Fayose not the same governor who chased his state legislature out of Ekiti state and replaced them with an illegal minority? He can fool some of the people some of the time, but he cannot fool all the people all the time. Every day is for the thief, but one day is for the owner. Day-by-day governor!
