The immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose on Thursday admonished President Muhammadu Buhari to face governance and stop complaining because his time was almost up.
Fayose said Buhari has spent three and half years blaming his predecessors and inflicted both security and economic crises on the country.
He made the remark in reaction to Buhari’s claim that he inherited a mind-boggling mismanaged economy from the previous administration.
In a statement by his Media Aide, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said, “When he was seeking votes of Nigerians, he never said he was coming to complain. Rather, he promised to fix what he claimed to have identified as the problems.
“It is no longer funny that a president who assumed office three and half years ago is still complaining about how he met the country instead of Nigerians having feelings of how well he has solved the problems he claimed that he had capacity to solve.
“He should stop singing the same song of lamentation that he has been singing since 2015 and learn from his colleague in Ghana, who hit the ground running immediately he assumed office.”
Fayose, who said the President should face the reality of a failed tenure and be prepared to leave office next year, added that, “only a leader who lacks competence and is challenged by knowledge and exposure will blame his predecessors for over three years.
“Nigerians of mostly below forty years who voted for the President in 2015 did so because they never experienced him as a Military Head of State. Now that they have seen that he does not have the required capacity to govern a country like Nigeria, they are eager to vote him out.”
