Fayose accused the President of nepotism and bias.

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communication, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said “Rather than concentrate and make a difference within his 100 days in office, the president’s greatest achievement so far is harassment of PDP leaders, appointment of his in-law and kinsmen into sensitive positions, selective fight against corruption and arrest and detention of INEC officials who worked in States won by the Peoples Democratic Party."

He also said that “Fighting corruption should not be synonymous with convicting Nigerians on pages of newspapers. Rather, the judiciary and other relevant agencies should be allowed to do their jobs without any direct or indirect interference from the President and his party."

Adding that “Opposition is one of the roots on which democracy stands and any president or governor that does not want opposition will eventually become a dictator. I want to state without fear or favour that I will continue to speak the truth no matter whose ox is gored."

“Nigeria belongs to all of us and no one can intimidate me or the good people of Ekiti State who freely and overwhelmingly gave me their mandate. Democracy as a form of government thrives on our ability to ask questions and get answers from leaders," Fayose said.
