Governor Ayo Fayose has said he will not stop criticising the All Progressive Congress (APC)  government’s anti-people policy.

Fayose said he is being persecuted because of his vocal stance against the bad decisions and practises of the current administration.

The Ekiti Governor also said he will not keep quiet because he is the last Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) man standing.

Fayose also alleged that APC’s plan is to wipe out the PDP totally in Nigeria, adding that the likes of Femi Fani-Kayode have been made to keep quiet.

He said “I am being persecuted because I am vocal. Why some of us are talking today is because if we betray the masses, God will not forgive us. That is why people like us have to exhibit courage to speak the truth. And if you notice, they are leaving no stone unturned to cage me from commenting, but that cannot be possible. They cannot win this war.

“I can’t keep quiet, they can’t shut my mouth. I am being persecuted but unfortunately I am becoming more popular. To this government, anybody in APC is considered as saint, but PDP people are rogues. That’s why you see some of our people crossing to their side and immediately, they become saints.”

The Governor also called on Nigerians to ask President Buhari to reveal those who financed his election campaign.

Fayose said “The money in my account is N300m, which I made public in my asset declaration form. That is why the court, which is the last hope of a common man, freed my man who was in their net and the court even awarded a N5m damages against the government. We can’t continue like this.

“My concern has always being that economy must be the priority of any government. People are hungry, the economy is bad. The brake of our economy has relapsed. No business seems prospective again. It’s not about the vehicle but the driver, it is about the head. The hardship is getting harder. Nigerians are not investing in the economy because of fear, same things as foreigners. There is threat on the capital.

“The APC presidential team campaigned with a private jet, is that free? They also spent heavily for their elections, where did they get their money? People are complaining seriously in the country, as for me, we have entered one chance with this current government. They took us into a lift, closed the door and they switch off the source of power supply, that is exactly what is really happening.”

Meanwhile, the first lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari has reportedly sued Governor Ayodele Fayose for alleging that she was involved in the Halliburton scandal.
