Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State on Thursday mocked President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime over serial scandals rocking it, saying it is a “chop-I-chop” government.
This was contained in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, in Ado Ekiti yesterday.
Fayose flayed Buhari’s promise to members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) would be expanded to bring in more party supporters.
He said: “Since those who manipulated votes for Buhari, especially in the north have already been settled with our collective wealth, it appears that it is now the turn of those they believe would assist them to retain power in 2019.”
The governor also called on those who left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the APC to return, adding that they were strangers in the ruling party.
He buttressed his point with a statement by the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service, Colonel Hameed Ali (rtd).
According to Ali: “The ruling APC could not fulfil its promises because more than 50 per cent of the positions in Buhari’s government are being held by members of the PDP, who fought against the actualisation of a Buhari Presidency.”
He stressed that it was sad that the president was only concerned about settling his party members, while the people were facing economic recession.
He added that the downturn was caused by Buhari’s cluelessness, with foodstuffs and drugs out of the reach of ordinary Nigerians.
