BUHARI LACKS WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING OF NIGERIA’S PROBLEMS, HE NEEDS PRAYERS, SAYS FAYOSE



Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has urged Nigerians to pray specially for President Muhammadu Buhari for God to give him the necessary wisdom to be able to find solution to the economic and security challenges facing the country.

He also tackled the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed over his comment that the war against Boko Haram has been largely won by the Nigerian military.

Fayose asked the Minister to relocate to Sambisa Forest in Borno State or Yobe without heavy military security and move around to test his theory that the war against insurgency has been won.

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said; “only God’s intervention can save Nigeria from the present economic and security problems as it is glaring that the man running the affairs of the country at the federal level does not have any answer to the problems”.

He said; “Even the Holy Bible said in James 1:5 that if anyone lacks wisdom, he should ask God and as it is, Nigerians must assist the President in asking for wisdom and understanding to tackle the country’s economic and security problems before Nigeria is further plunged into more woes with the federal government’s decision to borrow N2.2 Trillion, which translates to N6.066 billion per day to finance the 2016 Budget”.

On the announcement by Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu that effective from January 1, 2016 pump price of petrol would become N85 per litre, Gov. Fayose said it was a continuation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) government’s governance by deceit, saying; “Even secondary school students of economics know that you cannot deregulate and regulate at the same time”.

He argued that “it is only in a confused and clueless economy that government will plan to spend more when revenue has reduced by more than 50 percent”.

Governor Fayose, who maintained that petrol will not sell below N100 per litre in 2016, added that “Even now that the price is N87 and subsidy is yet to be removed, Nigerians are buying at between N130 and N300 per litre. What will now happen when they remove subsidy and allow market forces to determine the price?”

Describing Mr. Mohammed’s claim that Boko Haram insurgents had been defeated as strange, Fayose said “Nigerians will only take the minister serious if he relocates to either Sambisa in Borno State or Yobe State and stay there till the end of March, next year without heavy military security”.
He said; “To show their level of confusion, two days after the Minister of Information declared that Boko Haram had been defeated, President Buhari said the government would persuade Boko Haram to abandon their fight. One then wonders how the same Boko Haram insurgents Lai Mohammed said were already defeated will have to be persuaded to abandon their fight.

“Interestingly, the same Boko Haram that Lai Mohammed said had been defeated reported attacked Kimba village in Gur ward of Biu Local Government Area of Borno State yesterday night.
“Therefore, the Information Minister must show Nigerians how peaceful Borno and Yobe States have become after the defeat of Boko Haram by relocating to either Sambisa, Maiduguri or Yobe”.
