Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state, has called on Nigerians to send President Buhari back to Daura in 2019.

He made this comments following the recent exchange of words between the Senate and the presidency over the exclusion, if you will, of the Lagos-Calabar railway project from the 2016 budget.

Fayose said “I warned Nigerians of the consequences of electing an octogenarian as president and with the international embarrassment that this budget crisis has become, I have been vindicated.”

The Governor also said “The reality is that the President is challenged by age, exposure and ability. He did not read the budget proposal that he presented to the National Assembly and this should be a lesson for those who clamoured for a Buhari’s presidency that no man can give what he does not have.

 “The question is; can a minister present supplementary budget to the National Assembly and can the National Assembly act on budget proposal submitted by a minister?”

Adding that  “It is shameful that after blaming former President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for close to one year, the presidency is now blaming the National Assembly for its inability to prepare a common budget.”

Ayo Fayose also said President Muhammadu Buhari does not have luck.
