The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has criticised President Muhammadu Buhari over his New Year message to the nation. Mr. Fayose asked the president to take responsibility and stop passing the buck to others.
According to Mr. Fayose, a relentless critics of the president and member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, in an interview in Magodo, Lagos asked the presidency to apologise to Nigerians.
“What is wrong if he had said sorry to Nigerians who are at the receiving end of his bad policies? But in the case of President Buhari, he will always have someone to blame for his own failure.
“As a military Head of State, he blamed former President Shehu Shagari’s government. Since he assumed office, he has been blaming his predecessor. And now that he can’t provide fuel for Nigerians, despite claiming to have removed fuel subsidy, he is blaming some unknown Nigerians. When is he going to be man enough to stop his blame game?” Mr Fayose asked.
The governor said rather than blame people, Mr Buhari should have told Nigerians what is being done to stop the loss of millions of jobs, and the widespread killings across the country.
“Nigerians are tired of Buhari’s repetitive speeches and unfulfilled promises. Nigerians are crying that he should give them a responsive and competent cabinet.
