Ekiti State Governor , Ayodele Fayose, has said that the Buhari led administration has failed in his major promises to Nigerians, which is “to fix the economy, ensure security and fight corruption”. According to him Nigeria will be doomed if President Muhammadu Buhari is re-elected for a second term in office.
The Governor made this statement when he appeared on a national television broadcast on Saturday, as he alleged that the cabal has taken over power from the President.
The governor, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, also said he organised hunters to tackle the herdsmen menace because the federal security agencies appeared helpless over the issue.
He said, “The constitution of Nigeria is no longer working. The constitution was not even drafted to make the governor have control over the security apparatus that could be used to help his people.
“To worsen the situation, people who are supposed to protect this constitution are now collaborators. They are the ones trampling upon the laws of the land.
“The Federal Government under Buhari lacks the political will to tackle the (insecurity) challenge. The herdsmen are killing people every day and there is no security for anybody.
“It is now a common occurrence these days to see a herder threatening to command his cow to attack farmers. Anybody can see you on the way and attack you. They even slaughter their victims after attacks.
“You can’t even demean an animal like that. They would even threaten farmers that ‘if I see you in your farm, I will kill you; We have lost it.
“This administration rode to power with a threefold promise. To fix the economy, ensure security and fight corruption. They have failed in all aspects.”
He explained that Ghana dealt with the issue of herdsmen attacks and got rid of the gun-wielding criminals when they became a nuisance to the citizenry.
He said, “We are now at the mercy of the current administration headed by someone who does not see any other tribe as important. The people killed by Fulani herdsmen since Buhari came into power are more than those killed by the criminals from independence till 2015.”
