TVC N. Addressing journalists in Lagos on Tuesday, the Ekiti State Governor took a swipe at the Federal Government’s anti-corruption war.
He said: “We cannot wait again for somebody to hold us to ransom. I don’t have any bad blood against Buhari. (Acting President Prof. Yemi) Osinbajo has no powers without the President. He owes us the duty to tell us the state of his health,” the governor said.
While also assessing the country’s economy, Fayose said it was unfortunate that it had gone from bad to worse.
He noted that the middle- class had been wiped out. “There is no middle- class any more. Economic indicators are not cheery at all. They borrow money on a daily basis and committing funds that ought to accrue to all tiers of government to service the loans,” he added.
Fayose insisted that the Chibok girls’ controversy was used to blackmail former President Goodluck Jonathan.
The governor also scored Buhari low on securing the country, maintaining that more people had been killed by insurgents and herdsmen than in any other period in the history of Nigeria. He wondered why no Fulani herdsmen had been arrested and prosecuted despite the atrocities perpetrated across the country.
