Olakiitan Victor in Ado Ekiti
The Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to resign if he has no clue to solving the dwindling economic fortunes and hard-biting poverty pummeling the nation.
Fayose , who advised Buhari to also keep to the three million jobs annually he promised during the electioneering, added that it
would be unfair to this government to sack anybody under any guise or fail to resolve all issues affecting the populace, having promised that he has the magic wand to turn the country around.
The governor accused the president of double standards for proposing to remove the subsidy and jack up the pump price to N97, saying “this is not the change Nigerians voted for. President Buhari must fulfill all his electoral promises to the people. Enough of these flimsy excuses,” he said.
The governor said this yesterday while signing into law, the sum of N67.04 billion 2016 appropriation bill he presented before the House of Assembly last Tuesday, among other five bills that had been passed by the assembly.
Others bills assented to included: Ekiti State Regency Bill, Ekiti State 2015 Revised Appropriation Bill, Ekiti State College of Technical and Commercial Agriculture Repeal Bill, Ekiti State Office of the Defenders Bill and Kidnap and Terrorism Prohibition Bill 2016.
Fayose, who rapped Buhari for running a rudderless government said: “What we have under change promised by APC is dwindling economy, low power generation, proposed subsidy removal, high level poverty and naira devaluation.
“What President Buhari promised us is change and he should resign if he has no clues to all these problems.
“Even for the president to have said Nigerians should brace up for more hardship in 2016 is most callous of a man who promised Nigerians
“President Buhari must stop fighting from all fronts. All these political vendetta will take him nowhere. If he thinks he can’t solve all these problems, he should handover to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo
or whoever and vow out honourably.”
Fayose after assenting to the bills directed the speaker of the assembly, Hon. Kola Oluwawole to send copies to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission for proper monitoring.
“The fact that the appropriation bill was signed into law after one week of its presentation goes to show the unity of purpose between my government and the assembly. We have unanimously said today that we are running the same government under my leadership and that we will keep.
The speaker promised the governor that the assembly would continue to sustain the harmonious relationship between it and the executive arm.
