Ekiti State Governor yesterday while at Ibadan speaking at the Oyo State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists to celebrate the World Press Freedom Day once again reminded Nigerians of the Presidentâ€™s age saying there is little a man of over 70 can do due to the function of his brain. He also used his mother as an example.
Fayose further went on saying, Nigeria has never had it this bad in the last one year, with almost everything going backwards and the country in darkness. His words;
â€œPeople say that I abuse Buhari, I am not abusing him because he is like my grandfather but I know the history. Eighty per cent of people that voted for Buhari in the South-West did not know him. They are between 18 and 40. They voted because they wanted change desperately and I agree with them. He left government 32 years ago so they did not experience his rule.
â€œToday, the Peoples Democratic Party is no longer in government so they should stop blaming the PDP. They told us that dollars would become one to one with the naira. But where is that today? The regime of fuel subsidy is gone and we now have food subsidy. Queues are back at petrol stations. Whatever I say is divine. The next thing to happen will be the removal of the Kogi State governor. I have not lost a battle in my life and when I lost one, I came back to win.
â€œWe have never had it so bad like in the last 12 months; electricity has gone to zero and we no longer have light in our houses. I am here to tell Nigerians that we are in the wrong direction because you cannot give what you donâ€™t have. There is a time to retire because of the diminishing return on the functionality of the brain. At 75, my mother can do little.â€
Speaking on the anti-corruption war of the President, he said;
â€œWhen you want to deal with corruption, do it wholeheartedly. Donâ€™t say because this person has now joined the All Progressives Congress, he is now a saint. When I was supporting the ACN, they gave me many titles. Now that I am no longer with them, they see me as an enemy,â€ he said.
