Fayose made the comment in reference to Buhari’s anti-corruption war which he earlier termed “noisemaking”.
In a statement issued by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, the governor urged Buhari to “be cautious enough to know that the former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar led National Peace Committee tactically told him to tread cautiously and be mindful of the fact that he is not heading a military government.”
"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.”
"These are Nigerians who don't need personal favours from the President and he should get the message very clearly that he is being told not to act as a dictator.”
“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 (PDP).”
Nigerians have reacted to the governor’s comments via social media. Read twitter reactions below:
