Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state has slammed President Buhari saying he lacks the needed ideas to run the country.

Fayose made this comment in Ibadan while addressing members of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Oyo state chapter.

The Ekiti Governor also made it clear that he does not criticise Buhari because he hates him.

Fayose said "People say that I abuse Buhari, I am not abusing him because he is like my grandfather but I know the history. Eighty per cent of people that voted for Buhari in the South-West did not know him. They are between 18 and 40. They voted because they wanted change desperately and I agree with them. He left government 32 years ago so they did not experience his rule."

The Ekiti Governor also criticised the anti-corruption fight of the Buhari led administration, saying it is targeted at those who are not members of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said “Today, the Peoples Democratic Party is no longer in government so they should stop blaming the PDP. They told us that dollars would become one to one with the naira. But where is that today? The regime of fuel subsidy is gone and we now have food subsidy. Queues are back at petrol stations. Whatever I say is divine. The next thing to happen will be the removal of the Kogi State governor. I have not lost a battle in my life and when I lost one, I came back to win.”

“We have never had it so bad like in the last 12 months; electricity has gone to zero and we no longer have light in our houses. I am here to tell Nigerians that we are in the wrong direction because you cannot give what you don’t have. There is a time to retire because of the diminishing return on the functionality of the brain. At 75, my mother can do little," he added.

Chief Bode George recently slammed Fayose for saying he would not support his (George) ambition to become the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairman.
