Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose says he joined the ongoing indefinite strike initiated by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in his state because President Muhammadu Buhari failed to revamp the nation's economy.

He said the Buhari administration will not succeed at finding a solution to the current economic crisis in the country because God is angry with the President, adding that he won the 2015 Presidential election so that he can be exposed.

Fayose was said to have made the remarks at the Government House Chapel, Ado Ekiti, during a thanksgiving service to mark the first anniversary of the 5th assembly in Ekiti.

“I am not a prophet of doom, but I must tell you the truth. It is this economic downturn that will pull down the Buhari-led government. Mark my word. The economy will improve, but it will be too late in the life of the Buhari-led government,” spokesman of the speaker of Ekiti house of assembly, Stephen Gbadamosi quoted Fayose as saying.

“God is angry with the Buhari-led government. It is shedding the blood of too many innocent people.

“Soldiers would enter the home of poor village people and gun them down in cold blood. There is too much of blood-shedding. Look at what they did to that innocent woman in Kano.

“I am telling you that God allowed them to get into government so that they would be exposed; so that everyone would see their inability and hypocrisy.”

Fayose announced on Saturday, June 4, that he had joined the ongoing NLC strike in solidarity with the workers.

The workers are protesting the non-payment of their five months salaries and arrears. But the Governor blames the inability to pay the workers on the low Federal allocation coming to the state.
