BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has advised President Mohammadu Buhari to stop flying around the world but rather stay at home to tackle various problems confronting Nigerians.
The advice is coming against the backdrop that the president is today (Thursday) heading to Malta to attend a meeting of the commonwealth head of government (CHOGM), and will later proceed to Paris to attend a United Nations conference on climate change.
Recall that the president just on Tuesday returned from Iran where he attended the 3rd Gas Exporting Countries Forum.
Special Assistant to the Governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said in a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday that Governor Fayose advised President Buhari to tackle the collapsed economy of the country headlong instead of going from one country to another, casting aspersion on Nigerians with his sing-song of fighting corruption.
His words: “As at today, Nigerians are faced with serious hardship occasioned by prolonged fuel scarcity that the Federal Government does not have any solution to. Multi-national companies are laying-off thousands of workers while contractors working for the Federal Government have left their sites. Yet, what we get to hear from the President is noise in foreign lands about non-existing fight against corruption.
“Honestly, this President should get to work and stop lying to Nigerians and the international community.”
On Looted funds returned by former government officials, Fayose challenged the President to disclose the names of the officials, amount returned and that the money be paid into the federation account to be shared among the tiers of government.
