Former Governor Ayodele Fayose agrees with former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s comments on Nigeria being a failed State under President Buhari and APC.
A former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has stated that he agrees with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, that Nigeria is becoming a failed State, and can crumble, if nothing urgent is done to address the country’s challenges under President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, Page 36 learnt.
Fayose made this known in an Instagram Live Chat with the Chief Executive Officer, CEO, of Ovation Media Group, Dele Momodu.
Recall, that Obasanjo at an event in Abuja, recently said that Nigeria is slowly becoming a failed State, that urgently needs to be pulled out from the brinks of collapse.
Obasanjo has never seen Nigeria so divided in his life.
The former President also stated that he has never seen Nigeria so divided, adding that, many of the problems currently plaguing the country, are due to the recent mismanagement of Nigeria’s diversity.
Reacting during the one-on-one chat with Dele Momodu, Fayose stated that though he usually will not agree with Obasanjo on national issues, however, all that he (Fayose) predicted of the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, in 2015, are becoming a reality.
The former Ekiti State Governor, who said that there is nothing personal between himself and President Buhari, lamented on the insecurity and rising debt profile of the country, saying that, “only God will deliver Nigeria”.
His words: “Of all the Presidents, I do not like Obasanjo’s ways, I tell you the truth; I do not like his ways at all. Me and him, we are not on the same page, but Obasanjo is the only one-time Nigerian President that has helped this country here and there.
“The fact remains that if you look at the Obasanjo time, there are certain things he put in place, and do not forget, he saved this country a lot of money. He saved this country a lot of money. These people have squandered all we have. The way Obasanjo brought it down, they have taken it up.
“That was why what Obasanjo said today (Saturday), in a way, I agree with him. We do not normally agree, but I agree with him.
“When I started talking about President Buhari, even you, Dele Momodu, criticised me. Even you, Dele Momodu, was looking at a saint in Buhari. Today, most of you now should cover your faces in shame, that you gave Nigerians a wrong road and a wrong path. It is regrettable.
“Everything I said about that government at the time, when it was still in embryo, everything has happened today.
“I said in 2015, that President Buhari will be a shield for the looters to bleed this country. I said so many things; that this President has no capacity.
“My brother, have you seen a country governed the way this country is being governed? Have you seen one? Everybody now, we are in crisis, we are trouble, the economy is in trouble. You remember, Operation Occupy Nigeria? Where are these people now? You people should occupy again, we are waiting for you to occupy. This country is in trouble, we need God, we need intervention.
“Look at our debt profile. We may wake up one day, and they say China has come to take over. So, we should handover to China. It is a very sad development. If they do not address the electoral process in this country, we are going nowhere. When the government begins to fear the people, things will change.
“This APC in five years, is dastardly, more terrible than the PDP in 16 years.
“Nothing is personal between me and President Buhari; he did not take my wife, and I do not even have the capacity to take his wife, but this country is not governed well.”
