Governo Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari again barely two days after meeting him in Abuja.
The governor blamed the president for what he termed his inability to curb the insecurity and economic problems in the country.
In a statement issued by his spokesman, Lere Olayinka, the governor said the abduction of 105 pupils of Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state and Nigeria’s regression in Transparency International’s perception of corruption report were further proof that the president needs to “take a bow”.
He said: “President Buhari promised Nigerians that he will bring back the missing Chibok Girls and defeat Boko Haram within three months. After more than 32 months in office, Boko Haram is still killing Nigerians, with herdsmen also on killing spree.
“Painfully, the same Boko Haram they claimed to have defeated suddenly became strong enough to kidnap over 100 students. Now, Nigeria is not only looking for the remaining Chibok Girls, another over 100 innocent students have joined, this is unacceptable.
“Funny enough, a few days ago, the President called on all Nigerians to be prepared to pay the ‘ultimate price’ for the progress and unity of the nation and I wish to ask him what other price he wants Nigerians to pay.
“Already, Nigerians are sacrificing their lives by getting killed while seeking what to eat. Some have even committed suicide. Yet, the same President who is enjoying all the benefits of his office is calling on Nigerians to forego personal pleasures and pay the ultimate price.
