Fayose said Buhari should note that Nigerians will not measure his government on the basis of what his predecessors failed to do.
In a statement issued on Sunday, September 18, by his spokesman, Lere Olayinka, the Governor said the the President is destroying the essence of Nigeria.
He said: “Our President, through his actions and inactions is destroying everything that makes Nigeria a country and well-meaning. Nigerians must stand-up to be counted in the crusade to save the country from going under.”
Fayose said Buhari should note that “Nigerians will not measure his government on the basis of what his predecessors failed to do, but on what he does or neglected to do between May 29, 2016 and May 29, 2019.”
He also said the President shot himself in the foot by describing all Nigerians, to foreigners, as thieves and dishonest people.
''Which foreign investor will invest his money in a country of dishonest people? Who made investors to leave Nigeria if not President Buhari, who created atmosphere of economic and political instability in the country by his acts of nepotism and vindictiveness?," Fayose said.
“President Buhari has not only taking Nigeria to economic recession, he has moved the country to economic depression and nepotism has prevented him from engaging even the best hands in his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“No nation has ever reached greatness by their leaders engaging in blame game, nepotism and vengeance as being done by President Buhari and his APC government.”
“Nigerians must begin to speak out now before the country is totally destroyed by this one-man government, which does not see any idea coming from those perceived as opposed to the government as worthy of consideration.
“Like I said before, the main issue confronting Nigerians now is hunger and hunger does not speak the language of politics. It is therefore no longer about politics; it is about preventing hunger from killing Nigerians,” the governor said.
He rubbished the idea of the Federal Government injecting N350 billion into the economy through execution of capital projects, saying the government should stop deceiving Nigerians.
“If they inject even N500 billion into the economy by paying contractors executing federal government capital projects, how does that affect the price of rice and other food items? How does it affect the price of basic drugs?"
Fayose advised that the President should instead bring economic experts in the country irrespective of their political and ethnic affiliations so that they can proffer lasting solutions to the problem.
