Ayo Fayose, the Ekiti state governor, has attacked President Muhammadu Buhari, saying that last six month of his government were that of “deceitful change”.
The governor also laments Nigerian leader ruined the image of Nigeria and its people for cheap international recognition.
He also defined the claim by Kemi Adeosun, the Minister of Finance, that the ministry does not have details of any loots returned from officials of the previous government of Goodluck Jonathan as a clearing of his position that Buhari was not saying the truth.
Fayose added that Nigerians must ask their leader where the so-called looted fund was paid and who made the payments.
Ekiti governor said: “If the Ministry of Finance is not aware of any recovered fund, it is either those who purportedly made the refund did so by loading cash into Ghana-Must-Go bags and dropping the bags in the President’s bedroom or the fund was lodged into the Central Bank without records.
“The only areas President Buhari has recorded tremendous achievements are areas of political persecution, disobedience of court order and desperate bid to turn the country to a one-party state as evident in the Kogi State election, which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), headed by staged managed and muddled up.”
“In the last six months, a section of the judiciary has been so openly manipulated by the Buhari’s administration such that different judgments were given in similar cases, with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) getting negative judgments while the All Progressives Congress (APC) secured positive judgements in cases with similar facts and evidences.”
Speaking further Governor Fayose said: “Honestly, this change promised by President Buhari and his party, APC is nothing other than ‘one chance change’ and this has been attested to even by highly respected international news media.
“For instance, Bloomberg, in a report two days ago said hopes have fizzled in Buhari’s ability to turn around Nigeria and that money that flowed into stocks and bonds in Nigeria, which McKinsey & Co. says could become one of the world’s 20 biggest economies by 2030, is now fleeing as growth prospects diminish along with oil prices.
“Under President Buhari, the United States-based investment banking and financial services multinational J P Morgan ejected Nigeria from its Government Bond Index for Emerging Markets (GBI-EM) with effect from the end of October this year.
“Under Buhari, the future of workers are being threatened by the APC government plot to reduce minimum wage and retrench workers.
“Under Buhari, oil subsidy is to be removed next year January, thereby causing further hardship for the people.
“Under President Buhari, multi-national companies are laying-off thousands of workers while contractors working for the Federal Government have left their sites. Yet, what the President does is to junket from one country to another to cast aspersion on Nigeria and its people and one wonders how foreign investors will come to a country that its President says is peopled by rogues.”
Fayose had relentlessly criticised Buhari and his party, insisting the government has not performed impressively as Nigerians had expected. He was in the forefront of people who exaggerate Buhari’s school certificate saga, discrediting his education qualification.
